Improving revenue in the short-term and protecting it in the long run

A&K has extensive experience in the field of corporate restructuring. Our experience shows that poor operational performance mostly brings a company to its knees, whereas financing problems are simply the consequence.

Experience has proven that – beyond sales – there are always three performance deficits to blame: the product portfolio, the architecture of the value chain and material management plus shop-floor performance. Based on decades of industry experience as well as field-tested practices and procedures for process and operational performance improvement, A&K’s consultants restructure industrial and wholesale companies quickly and effectively.

Why constraint management and restructuring?

Why constraint management and restructuring?

Due to the economic crisis, the increasingly fierce international competition in industry as well as Basel II and III, a neutral assessment of the economic efficiency of industrial plants as well as the identification of possibilities to improve efficiency gains increasing importance. A&K’s consultants are authorised experts for the economic assessment of manufacturing companies.
