    Global Delivery - The Americas

    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 in 2020, with the United States forecast to be -6.9%, for Canada -6.2% and for Mexico -6.6% according to recent IMF projections.

How agile and resilient is your supply chain and operations?

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

Clients speak

After applying TVO across three corporations, both public and private equity owned, we generated $290M in EBITDA, $310M in cash and growth through improved customer responsiveness. Every company and CEO should consider implementing TVO." CEO, Specialty Chemicals

Based on the value Maine Pointe delivered through improving the operations in our Mesquite Mine in California, we agreed to work with them on a strategic procurement engagement involving all of our mines in Canada, the US, Mexico and Australia. Maine Pointe developed cross-functional teams, and worked closely with our personnel, to achieve sustainable savings across a broad spectrum of non-capital spend. Their approach in working with our people was key to our mutual success. The pragmatic approach of their team laid a solid foundation for ongoing improvements within our management organization." President and CEO, Mining Industry

Maine Pointe promised us industry experts and delivered. They promised us savings and delivered. They promised to leave us with a sustainable process that would continue to yield benefits years down and they delivered. All of this was done while maintaining and strengthening supplier relationships that we have had for more than 20 years. I have the highest regard for Maine Pointe and am happy to recommend them to any company.” CEO, Manufacturing
