Production Footprint Europe in HVAC

A manufacturer in the field of heating / ventilation / air conditioning is confronted with decreasing quantities and price collapse in one product area. As a result, overcapacities in the plants have to be reduced and cost structures improved.

Our services

  • Comprehensive analysis of the current production footprint in Switzerland, France and Eastern Europe as well as of the sales markets in Europe

  • Evaluation of an optimal solution for production and logistics based on different scenarios, financially and qualitatively

  • Close cooperation with the responsible persons of the customer, support of decision making of management and bord of directors

  • Production relocation and partial plant closure with socially acceptable job cuts

  • Transfer of product know-how and harmonization / streamlining of product ranges and migration of production data


Ensuring the readiness for delivery during the implementation. Reduction of variable manufacturing costs by 15%. For 95% of the dismissed employees a new job could be found seamlessly.
