For a US based truck accessories manufacturer / market leader with a UK footprint, Quantum conducted ODD, synergy assessment and integration planning for the acquisition of a UK based competitor truck accessories company. Quantum conducted site visits to the buyer and target’s UK manufacturing and parts distribution locations. Quantum’s synergy assessment focused on identifying and quantifying the synergies in procurement, organization, after market distribution operations, footprint and other areas. Quantum also assessed the opportunity to implement production automation at 2 of the UK manufacturing locations, based on the US plant’s operating model. Quantum developed an integrated organizational model and a detailed integration plan and change management plan for the 2 companies to cover all the identified opportunities, and also to de-risk the transitioning out of the founder/managers at the target.
