Quantum completes chemicals footprint strategy development

May 15, 2019. Quantum Strategic Advisors has completed the development of the North American footprint strategy for a global chemicals company. The Quantum team was asked to assess if footprint consolidation was possible. 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.
