Power Generation and Aerospace - private sector client
Strategic support was required by a manufacturer of ultrasonic testing equipment for the power generation and aerospace industries. We have assisted the company to develop new products, further growing the business. We identified key strategic issues that were hindering the company's growth. One problem was the focus on the technical aspects of the business and not enough on market development. We continue to work with the company to develop leading edge instruments and re-focusing the business on a commercial footing rather than a technical one. The company has more than doubled turnover and significantly increased profits over the course of our intervention, has developed healthy worldwide export markets and is now making in-roads into the nuclear industry.

A Midlands based manufacturer of pre-cast concrete manufacturing equipment . We were asked to work with the company to review the current market position and then develop, with the company, a forward marketing strategy and action plans. Its competitive strengths and weaknesses were reviewed and a strategic marketing plan established that has focused the company’s sales and marketing activity on what it is good at, following up achievable leads more effectively. The turnover has doubled since the review.
Energy Sector - public sector client
We worked closely with key public sector regional bodies to develop and update the East Midland’s regional energy strategy. The regional energy strategy includes an updated status and identifies next steps for the regional energy action plans in each of the agreed strategic priority areas. The strategy document developed provided an updated regional, national and international context for the regional energy strategy and provided updated scopes for each of the existing regional strategic priorities. The document produced also provided a framework for oversight and monitoring progress of the ongoing implementation of the energy strategy. The next steps and timescales for action are also defined.
