Seraph was engaged by a private equity owned Tier 1 medical device manufacturer in the final stages of preparation for a sale. The client asked Seraph to evaluate the Manufacturing Footprint and develop optimization possibilities, with an initial hypothesis that two plants could be closed. It was clear that the manufacturing footprint was suboptimal, asset utilization was low, and ongoing infrastructure costs were high.
Seraph was asked to examine the operational footprint, understand and quantify asset utilization across the network, and to make recommendations on improvements. We were also asked to help evaluate establishment of a low-cost country strategy for a future manufacturing footprint. We agreed with the client that two plants would need to be removed from the manufacturing network, and these plants were targeted for a deep dive based on clear data.
Value was quickly realized within the same fiscal year that the project was kicked off.
