    Global Delivery - East and South Asia

    Local knowledge and deep industry expertise are key to success

World economies feel the impact of the global pandemic

For the first time since the Great Depression of the 1930s, the pandemic has simultaneously thrown advanced economies, emerging markets and developing economies into recession. This will seriously impact growth across the world with emerging and developing Asia expected to experience -1.0% growth, down from 3.7% in 2019, according to recent IMF projections.

How quickly can you adapt to ongoing uncertainty and the prospect of a deep recession ?

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 organization. Accordingly, I would not hesitate to recommend Maine Pointe.” CEO Global Manufacturing

Maine Pointe took us to a place we didn't know we could get to. Within the turn of a season, they gave us what would have taken 3 to 4 years to achieve." CEO, Global Food Processor

I would like to commend you for doing an outstanding job on our recent engagement to implement a Management Operating System and fast track a strategic procurement initiative to drive operational improvement in our business. The objectives were to drive double digit percentage improvement in our EBITDA by achieving 10% savings in our manufacturing costs and more than 5% savings on our raw material spend. I am pleased to say we met those objectives on time and within budget. Maine Pointe’s Total Value Optimization (TVO) and procedural approach, coupled with an accelerated schedule, were the key reasons behind our decision to move ahead with the engagement.” CEO Global Specialty Chemicals
