It’s That Time of Year Again…
We were delighted to attend the prestigious 2017 Chemical Industry awards ceremony in June, at which we were excited to be shortlisted for the Chemical Industry Service Provider of the Year award.
The Award recognises the contribution of Service Providers to the success of the UK chemical industry. In particular innovation and outstanding delivery of services for example, engineering, IT, legal, training to the chemical or pharmaceutical sectors.
Unfortunately we didn’t win but we had a great evening celebrating our “near success” with a number of our clients who had joined us for the evening!
We were also delighted to have the opportunity to share on the success of Johnson Matthey, Edinburgh who are one of our longstanding clients. They won the the prestigious ABB Manufacturing and Resource Efficiency Award this year. This award is in recognition for the outstanding work the team in Edinburgh have been doing over the last few years driving performance improvements and instilling a culture of continuous improvement across the business.
We are proud to have been part of their ongoing journey – and we hope they have even more success in the years to come with many exciting things going on in their business including major expansion at a new site in Annan.
Uncovering Hidden Value With Our OPEX Assessments
Recently Andy was invited to put these tools to powerful use in a different context – working closely with a Private Equity company, Pamploma, looking to to realise their investment in a high performance plastics company. These tools allowed us to showcase the operational capabilities of their business in a visible, data driven, and easy to understand way and to identify future value enhancement opportunities from broader Opex improvements. The findings and conclusions have had a big impact on shaping the company sales prospectus.
We have found the Process Insight Opex Assessments very useful in the due diligence process when both buying and selling companies. It gives us a great view on the comparative performance of an organisation that does not come through in the financials alone.
