Chemicals Footprint Strategy

For a global chemicals company, Quantum developed its North American footprint strategy – specifically to address if plants could be consolidated. The Quantum team worked collaboratively with the client to assess demand and capacity by various chemistries at the reactor level at each plant, under various business scenarios.

Quantum developed several footprint scenarios that evaluated capital investments, reactor utilizations, tolling considerations, tank capacities, infrastructure investments, operating costs, freight considerations, regulatory considerations and customer impact. Quantum calculated CapEx, OpEX and ROI under each scenario, and a recommended path forward.
