Rudolf Klein, CEO

We have never completed such a change in such a short period of time.

Didier Blanchard, Manager of Production, Tremery

The bottleneck in the factory was cleared within 3 months. Weekly production rose from a maximum of 28,500 engine casings per week to today’s level where we greatly exceed 30,000 casings weekly, producing up to 30,500.

The project initiatives, contrary to experience with other consultants, took place with a sense of trust shared across the entire operational team. The first-line managers and the operators worked together, and everybody contributed to this result.

I am completely satisfied with the approach adopted and the results obtained and, if the same problem arose again, I would without any hesitation work with Proudfoot.

Dr. Ing. Klaus J Henke, Executive Vice President

The Proudfoot-MAHLE team analyzed the entire value chain from order entry to delivery. They subsequently redesigned the existing process, thereby defining the optimum approach and then set about implementing this revised approach. The increased flexibility which we have achieved enables us to conform to price, quality and delivery requirements in a demanding market.
