What we do & how we can help…

Given our decades of hands-on experience in managing large Food Processing and Packaging Equipment manufacturing companies, we can provide assistance in the following (main) areas:

Financial & Operational Excellence

Financial & Operational Excellence

After running a company for a while, you might start thinking that all growth avenues have already been explored and exploited. However, by engaging us as neutral third-party experts, you might find quite quickly that other paths and opportunities for improvements still exist. 

Areas we can help you investigate and evaluate include:

Top-Line Opportunities:

  • Product additions or reductions/eliminations

    • Is your product portfolio right for your skillset and the market you serve?

  • Service revenue growth

    • Are you reactive or proactive?

  • New market segments – geographic or business area

  • Cooperation with other OEMs on complete line offering and distribution

  • Distribution agreements with overseas OEMs  

Sustainable Bottom-Line Improvements:

  • Evaluation and review of current state

  • Pricing, discounting, and payment opportunities

Merger & Acquisition Support

Whether you are in the process of merging with or looking to acquire another company, early decisions and steps taken before you even start that process can have a massive impact on the outcome and determine your likelihood of success.


To guide you around these potential pitfalls, we can – in cooperation with your team – provide the high level review, analysis, and discussion support that will help you move effectively towards a conclusion of the opportunity.


As part of this process, we engage in the following areas:

  • Strategic fit analysis

  • Preparation of the organization for upcoming changes

  • Coordination of the acquisition/merging team

  • Due diligence guidance

  • Financial impact analysis

Change In Ownership / Selling The Company

How you prepare your business for change in ownership depends a lot on the type of buyer you are pursuing:

  • Company in the same industry

  • EC or VC

  • Family member(s)

  • Employees in company

Each has different motivators and goals for your company post buying it. It is important that your sales efforts reflect those differences.
Other important factors that must be considered include:

  • The role of current management once the transaction is completed

  • Timing of the process initiation

To prepare your business for a successful transition, we can help with:

  • Getting the P&L and Balance sheet ready

  • Determining what needs to be done/cleaned up prior to the offering
  • Structuring the Business Presentation, including review of drafts and dry runs

  • Selection of Legal and Business Advisors

Contract Formulation, Negotiation & Conflict Management

Avoiding contract pitfalls that can block sales negotiations and potentially cause irreparable harm to the business, is a skill that usually requires "outside-in" review. Your own team is often too close to the action to be able to comprehensively identify areas of future potential conflict or non-performance, and there is no replacement for handling these issues before an important order, a Master Agreement, or a supply contract is accepted. 


If already in motion, the way a conflict is handled can fully determine the outcome, both in terms of financial costs and potential losses of customers and/or reputation, especially early on. 


With our expertise and extensive experience, we can not only advise you throughout this process, to help minimize the impact on your business (and even you, personally), but we can also act as an Expert Witness if the case is already in litigation.
