    Building Material Manufacturing

    We deliver compelling economic returns and value through accelerated performance improvements in EBITDA, cash and growth

Re-imagine your business and tap into growth opportunities

The building material manufacturing industry consists of structural building materials, interior building materials, exterior building materials, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, fixtures and other products. Sustainable building appears to be an emerging area of opportunity with the global green buildings market expected to reach USD 364.6 billion by 2022. 

Industry 4.0

Technological innovations have facilitated a rise in demand in green building materials, as products are becoming increasing affordable and readily available. As a result, the demand has increased dramatically over the past few years largely due to a rebounding construction market.

The green revolution

Four out of five contractors cite that their customers request energy efficient materials for US projects and sustainability is at the heart of the European Union’s Europe 2020 goals for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

Labor shortages

Skilled labor shortages, poor productivity and profitability, project complexity, sustainability concerns and increasing digitization all threaten to derail the industry’s growth. Companies that address these challenges head on and re-imagine their business processes will be poised for significant growth. Businesses that fail to take the challenges seriously will face an uphill battle for viability.

Working collaboratively with client team to enhance overall effectiveness

One of the many strengths of the Maine Pointe team was their communication and collaboration skills. Maine Pointe personnel worked closely and effectively with our executive leadership and cross-functional teams to identify and capture significant savings across the enterprise-wide spend portfolio. I would recommend Maine Pointe to any company looking to significantly improve their supply chain service offering and to enhance the overall effectiveness of their company.”

Strong team delivers powerful CEO recommendation

I am happy to report that our savings targets were exceeded. We were supported by a strong Maine Pointe team - from the initial analysis to the end of the project - and their practical and linear approach to the project has laid a solid foundation for future improvements within the Qualitor organization. Accordingly, I would not hesitate to recommend Maine Pointe.”
