TAILORED FOR PRIVATE EQUITY
CPQP International offers a proven track record working with Private Equity Groups that invest in manufacturing and distribution. We assist with specific details of acquisition & rollup, consolidation, cost reduction, operational due diligence, improve profitability for portfolio companies, and lean manufacturing process improvement.
There are several advantages to a consolidation including substantial cost savings by reducing redundant labor, redundant operating systems, operating multiple plants, utilities and housing obsolete equipment, tooling and inventory. When planned efficiently, this is also the perfect time to optimize current processes to operate more efficiently at their new home.
OPERATIONAL DUE DILLIGENCE ASSISTANCE FOR CONSOLIDATIONS AND ACQUISITIONS
Complementary to and not a replacement for traditional finance focused due diligence, CPQP Operational Due Diligence assistance takes an in-depth look: data collection, analysis and assessment of the following areas. Once done, a much more complete picture is presented, allowing management to make sound consolidation (or expansion) decisions based on data and analysis of a manufacturer’s operations. CPQP gathers these data from all available sources – usually on site – and provides expert analysis in an easily understood format. Then, a manufacturing plant relocation decision can be made based on data.
