A newly created division in the mechatronics supply industry was commissioned to improve sales and margins of operating companies.

We were asked to develop hypotheses for strategy development.

Activities and results
We have developed various hypotheses focused on top-line and cost base optimization. The most important hypotheses developed and accepted by management were:
Sales team integration.
Cross-selling product portfolio of various operating companies.
Expansion of market segments.
Rationalization of customer base.
Transition production resources to low-wage location.

The above hypotheses have been tested based on internal, external benchmark information, personnel, supplier and customer interviews. The improvement initiatives defined further in a detailed planning after acceptance.
