Consolidation of the asset footprint and restructuring of the organisation

Consolidation of the asset footprint and restructuring of the organisation

What they asked

Our client is the largest printer in the Netherlands. The market they are operating in is declining constantly. Over the past years, several reorganisations had shed capacity and reduced personnel to keep up productivity. The existing company structure, with a sizeable holding, was kept largely intact. Scaling down in capacity required rethinking the organisational structure and reduce overhead cost. The client asked us to redesign their top structure and organisation and to right-size its asset footprint.

What we did

We modelled the then current asset base to simulate different loading scenarios. We analysed the cash contribution of the order portfolio in different loading scenarios and market dynamics. We designed a new organisation blueprint based on design principles. These principles were tailored to the new business context and based on numerous interviews and discussions with management. In addition, we identified FTE savings based on analysing current staffing levels against workload drivers.

What we accomplished

Volume in two printing locations was consolidated. A third location was closed. The organisation structure was simplified, the holding structure was discontinued, and necessary functions were integrated into the print division. Together, these measures restored profitability and cash generation.
