Automotive Consulting Services

The roots of Seraph’s experience are grounded in driving success for OEM operations. Our track record includes acute crisis management of supply chain capacity issues, as well as working proactively with Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers to satisfy the demands of multiple automakers.

The next decade promises to bring significant transformation to automotive manufacturing and the industry at large. OEMs working to preserve market share are shifting resources into R&D for autonomy, electrification and expanding connectivity, as new entrants launch their own facilities and give life to their own innovations.

While internal combustion engines (ICE) continue to drive the majority of profits for established automakers, investment allocation is focused on shifting the paradigm towards electric transportation. This presents significant obstacles to OEM infrastructure and supply chains. Striking a balance between maintaining production capacity while unlocking capital for R&D and M&A will prove to be vital for firms looking to remain relevant in a new age.

Our automotive consultants have collaborated with engineering teams to deliver complex systems and sub-assemblies, and have overseen plant relocations to ensure seamless transitions to restore and protect profitability. We view the shifting automotive landscape as an opportunity to unlock future value for our clients.

By building on the strengths of your organization while proactively protecting against the unexpected, our automotive consultants work to deliver solutions that keep you relevant and competitive.
