Manufacturing case studies
The case studies below demonstrate our capabilities in sectors such as packaging, engineering and construction products.
My organisation prepares a R&D claim internally, but do I still need assurance that I am optimising my claim?
Our client is a Small-to-Medium Enterprise (SME) which is a leading developer of pharmaceutical technology. The client has a small management team who are heavily involved in technology development. While realising the potential benefit of the claim was important to the business, the organisation needed to engage a service provider with an understanding of, and ability to work within, the financial constraints imposed by the size of the business.
R&D activity drives the nature of the projects my organisation undertakes. How do I go about claiming R&D relief?
Our client is an owner-managed business that designs and manufactures large scale engineering plant. The organisation had not previously considered preparing R&D claims as they were uncertain that their activities could be eligible for the relief. They needed an understanding of the extent to which their activities were eligible and the potential benefit that they could realise.
Don't change for lean's sake: Lean manufacturing
There is no doubt that lean thinking is driving massive changes in manufacturing processes worldwide. It lies at the heart of measurable improvements in quality, reliability and performance. What lean is not, however, is a magic formula that solves manufacturing issues in one easy application.
The backbone of a better business: IT integration
IT integration is not a luxury. Growth by acquisition has resulted in a mass of disparate systems for many major manufacturers. The situation is usually manageable when member companies operate autonomously. When, however, the group wants to move forward as a unified whole, common financial reporting is simply not enough.
The secrets of swift and successful acquisition: Mergers & Aquisition
Today, the M&A climate is undoubtedly difficult. The recent disposal of a large, diverse plastics and packaging company proves, however, that it is still possible to complete major transactions fast and efficiently while satisfying the priorities of both the shareholders and the businesses involved.
Strengthening the supply chain: Supply Chain Management
Optimising the supply chain is one of today’s hot topics. Supply chain inefficiency is a key cause of unnecessary costs and poor delivery performance. There is no doubt, however, that far-reaching, end-to-end projects demand a complex blend of process, IT and financial skills and involve people at virtually every level.
