Spanish International Industrial Company Needed To Reorganise Its French Subsidiary
Our client was a Spanish Industrial Company in the field of crane design and manufacturing. It had revenues of around Euro 100m and manufacturing plants in Spain, Mexico, India and Argentina.
Recent years have seen the company drive substantial expansion internationally.
The company was seeking to improve the performance of its subsidiaries in Mexico and India. The key to this was the development of an Industrial Plan, but the firm did not have the required resource in-house.
WIL Group's Latam desk sourced two experienced Interim managers with knowledge and extensive manufacturing experience. They were rapidly deployed into the two subsidiaries.
Both managers have now been working for the company on an interim basis for more than two years. The client has confirmed that they are driving excellent results.
Both subsidiaries have seen dramatic improvement to the competitiveness of their plants. The interim managers have driven this through reducing production costs and leading improvements to capacity .
In Mexico there is now a well-established sales network that is supporting the company to enter new markets in the country and the south of USA.
As a final step to this assignment, we have now sourced a permanent successor to the manager in India, who has worked alongside our interim as part of his training for a number of months.
The interim manager for India is now moving to Mexico to become permanent manager.
