Private Equity & Investment

We work with private equity firms across the investment lifecycle. Operations and private equity are in our DNA. Since its foundation in 1979, we have been supporting private equity firms, pension funds, hedge funds, and their portfolio companies to excel in their mutual value creation from an operational point of view.

In today's world of ever-increasing deal flows and higher multiples paid, private equity firms must create value through several levers, one of them being operations improvements. A successful exit must prove those improvements to be sustained and embedded in the portfolio company. We partner with the private equity firms and the portfolio companies throughout the entire investment cycle starting with the operations due diligence, the first 100-day detailed analysis, operations carve-out and merger integration to the implementation and sustainment of the investment dissertation.

Our asset optimization structure is focused on maintenance reliability and overall equipment effectiveness with a philosophy of improvement driven by data and asset performance. Our consultants understand the strategies associated with growing revenue, as well as improving the product life cycle service cost structure.

Our supply chain, manufacturing, procurement, industrial aftermarket and value engineering and innovation services are led by seasoned professionals who have extensive industry experience.

Changes in operations entail changes in behaviors. Our sustainability workstreams create specific solutions to make sure that the process changes get through the finish line, and the leadership mindset supports the ongoing culture change. Whether it's the setup of the appropriate key performance indicator structure and the meeting cadence for their management, a shopfloor management structure (also applied to areas outside the shopfloor), or the overriding leadership behavior methodology, we apply the appropriate mix of tools to ensure that the changes remain over time.
