We believe the days of financial engineering to extract value are long gone. A diverse executive leadership team working cohesively at identifying and capitalizing on value creation opportunities across the global value chain spectrum is key to driving growth. What creates top and bottom line growth includes operational leadership, product innovation, process engineering, lean manufacturing, global supply chain architecture, sales strategy and talent management. All that being said, the primary drivers to deliver on this philosophy is the company and its people who are engaged in the day-to-day operations.
Our technical, operational, sales and leadership expertise is deep rooted in the mechanical and electromechanical industry. We have lived through the evolution in the industry such as regulations shaping R&D investments and socioeconomic changes leading to a change in the trajectory of various product classes. As experience has been our guide, we understand how to refine product portfolios to drive growth with high impact initiatives in R&D, marketing, and sales. We will make strides in transforming an organization from a product sales organization to a technical solution provider.
Your company, like every other, is deeply intertwined with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concerns. Future generations will live in a world based on the decision we make today. As corporate actors, we have a duty to make consciously moral decisions, from labor relations and diversity to meeting the needs of all stakeholders including the community in which we serve. Everything matters. A strong ESG proposition helps companies tap new markets and expand into existing ones.
Long Term Perspective
As an executive led acquisition, we recognize that a company is defined by its long-term vision and flawless execution. Thoughtful change and high impact initiatives can take time to materialize and the greatest growth may transpire beyond any artificial horizon. With patient capital supporting our vision, we have the advantage to think long term and delivering the greatest value for all our stakeholders, today and beyond.
Each industrial revolution from the steam engine to today’s highly connected digital world brings upon uncomfortable changes that leadership must grapple with. A failure to recognize and act on these changes can dislodge an organization’s position in the marketplace. These are difficult times, but we understand the importance of making tactical and strategic investments and evolving an organization to capitalize on the fourth industrial revolution. By doing so, we believe this will allow us to onshore jobs, retain talent, and grow a manufacturing firm beyond what might be achievable by maintaining the status quo. This will allow us to be good stewards of our employees, community and all stakeholders.
Today is a time of uncertainty as trade policies of the past have been challenged; however, we understand that whatever hurdles we may experience today are likely to be short lived. Ultimately, we view the globe and its people as our target market. We have extensive experience growing sales across continental boundaries and navigating international commercial and cultural norms that differ vastly from ours. This is especially the case in Asia, which is on track to top 50 percent of global GDP by 2040 and drive 40 percent of the world’s consumption, representing a real shift in the world’s center of gravity. A failure to tap into that market today will position North American manufacturing firms for severe challenges tomorrow.
