Increasing production throughput is hard enough. But you also have to do this without compromising quality and hygiene standards. And the improvement has to be sustainable.
It is difficult.
And yet we do it for our clients every day. And the results last.
Do you need to improve quality without sacrificing throughput?
Do you need to improve maintenance effectiveness in a clean environment?
Do you need to reduce wait time between line change overs?
Do you need to install automation and train your employees to adapt?
Do you need to engage your highly skilled workforce to manage your advanced equipment efficiently?
This is what we do.
And we do it by focusing on your people. We use our technical expertise in the industry to ensure everyone understands the systems, processes, and controls and why they exist.
As we work together with the people doing the work we uncover processes that are not required or can be fixed to save lost time. Simple fixes costing a few dollars can save minutes here and there saving thousands of dollars over the year. Fixing the frustrations of the people means more engagement from the team and a better work culture.
We design, implement and accelerate operational and digital transformation through people. We partner with organizations to solve strategically important problems that impede top-line growth or bottom-line results.
This allows us to create new capabilities and harness the power of your people to build an engaged culture, turbocharge leadership behaviors, and implement improved operating models.
Through collaboration with your front-line supervision, your middle management, and your senior executives, we fully implement solutions that transform your operations - the way you and your people do business.
Several months after the completion of the project, we still see measurable results and the sustainable value of this mission.
SVP Supply Chain
Proudfoot was chosen over the other firms because of their people first approach, we were right… Proudfoot quickly engaged all shifts and departments building trust in the new processes, tools and policies.
Roland Chazal, Directeur Général, Perrier
The Proudfoot team provided practical hands-on assistance, which allowed them to secure the support and the respect of the factory supervisors and managers. The team’s understanding of the specific union environment in that site, as well as their ability to create ownership of the change program by the different groups involved, was quite simply remarkable.
What stood out was Proudfoot’s absolute commitment to ensuring the changes recommended not only happened but were sustained.
Jesus Garcia, Managing Director & Board Member, Pescanova
The results of our project with Proudfoot, completed ten years ago, are in as full force today as they were the first day after the project’s completion. The processes and management tools installed at that time are currently used by the operating teams of our company. We remain grateful to Proudfoot for its contribution to the quality of our organisation and we are happy to tell this to whoever may ask us.
