Maine Pointe was founded in 2004 in the US as a result of the simple observation that senior executives and private equity firms needed specialists to help them drive measurable operational improvements, fast. To achieve this, Steve Bowen, our Chairman and CEO, invested in building a results-driven implementation firm that was underpinned with a culture and set of values clients could trust.
Today, Maine Pointe is recognized as a specialist in driving EBITDA, cash and growth improvements across the areas of procurement, operations and logistics. The reach of our operations has spread across North America, Europe and Asia. Not only that, Maine Pointe is distinctive in its ability to underpin its projects with a unique 100% engagement fee guarantee.*
