July 2020. Quantum Strategic Advisors has completed a 12 month engagement for a mid-market PE portfolio chemicals company to integrate 6 acquisitions and also to stabilize operations at the consolidated central bottling/packaging plant.
Quantum set up a PMO structure, built functional integration plans for each of the acquired companies and managed the integration. The scope included raw material procurement savings, closing down of 2 facilities and opening a new central bottling facility with expanded capacity, increased cross-selling, insourcing, and ERP extension to all locations. The team achieved the savings targets and all integration milestones.
Following the integration, Quantum led a 6-month engagement to stabilize operations at the central bottling plant. Quantum consultant acted as the interim plant manager, hired key staff, staffed a second shift, set up KPIs and daily reporting. Reduced back orders by 80% when order volumes increased by 275%. All of this was achieved while maintaining disease free continuous operations during the Covid outbreak.
