The automotive manufacturing industry and its suppliers are currently experiencing a phase of growth, especially in the international markets. However, the pressure of cost and competition on the business is on the rise due to an increasing level of internationalization. Along with a growing number of risks concerning product development, relocation to emerging markets and the increasing complexity of products, many companies are faced with great challenges.

We can assist automotive manufacturers and their suppliers to find the right strategy for this phase. Due to our experience in the automotive field, we understand the specifics of the industry and how to deal with them very well. Not only do we provide knowledge in the area of methodology, but also benchmarking and best-practice know-how.
