Manufacturing Plant Consolidation
CPQP International specializes in manufacturing plant consolidation and distribution facility consolidation. 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. A typical consolidation usually consists of one or more plants being moved into a receiving plant.
Manufacturing Plant Relocation
There are substantial financial and operating gains to be made when manufacturing plant relocations are well planned and executed. CPQP has developed a specific model when it comes to starting a new plant or relocating an existing plant. Our methodologies are based on our significant experience gained from assisting our clients with over 40 plant startups and relocations worldwide. Typically a plant move includes planning the transportation of plant and material to a new facility and recommissioning while protecting customer sales.
In addition to this method, the CPQP approach uses this prime opportunity to apply Lean methodology to all aspects of the business and uses the move as a window of opportunity to carry out the Lean transformation.
