Printing Company - London
Turnover £8 million
Brought in by parent company to redefine and fine tune the printing operation. Although very profitable, the parent company believed that the management had become complacent. We identified areas within the company where substantial savings could be made through operational improvements, as well as changes in equipment and machinery. Profits increased by £300,000 per annum. Within 4 years we were invited back to oversee an MBO and introduce structure to the negotiations. The company then recorded a turnover of £14 million whilst returning £2 million prior to tax.
