Growth in production and new orders is slowing in the global manufacturing sector, led primarily by a downturn in emerging markets

With a subdued air settling over the industry, organisations are under pressure to turn things around. However, with economic expansion starting to turn to stagnation or decline in many parts of the world, there are sure to be many hurdles to overcome.

The challenge

Investment is low and business-to-business spending is dropping off. While consumer sentiment is largely improving, economic trouble in the Eurozone, Asia and South America is threatening stability. Add into the mix security concerns coming out of the Middle East and North Africa, increased regulation, health and safety issues and emerging technologies, and a challenging picture emerges for manufacturing organisations.

Companies need to be able to do it all: You need to be able to innovate and bring products to market, while lowering costs; you need to focus on efficiency, while using resource to trial and implement new technologies; and you need to remain competitive, while complying with rules and regulations.

I would say that [Primeast’s] project exceeded all our expectations and will have a long term impact on the commercial success of our company. I do not regret any of the resources in staff time and finance that were expended reaching where we are now, fantastic improvement against the background of acquisition of an SME by a Multinational, remote location, internationalisation with local, German and Norwegian cultural adjustments and challenges.
