A consumer products company was looking for help to rapidly improve EBITDA. They engaged A&M to reduce costs for their top four COGS categories – contract manufacturing, chemicals, freight and& warehousing, and packaging materials, and to make improvements to their Order-to-Fulfillment process.
A&M leveraged contract manufacturing market intelligence and introduced new suppliers into competitive sourcing events that reduced the client’s supply base while enhancing service capabilities, which led to:
- Increased EBITDA by six percentage points
- Increased profits by 120%
- Increased exit value by 8X
