    Our results-driven engagements deliver between a 4:1-8:1 ROI

Meeting the challenges of a changing world

    • These unusual times require CEOs to consider options they may not have previously entertained
    • Executives are under enormous pressure to devise a recovery strategy to quickly limit short-term disruption, support recovery in the mid-term, and build greater supply chain agility, resilience and optimization in the longer term
    • With speed and “measurability” (aka actually dropping to the bottom line) more critical than ever before, internal initiatives are unlikely to be sufficient
    • Maine Pointe is helping clients in the manufacturing sector navigate and accelerate through these challenging times with a process of stabilize-recover-rebalance which drives supply chain and operations rationalization and improvement initiatives three times faster than a traditional approach

Your shareholders and board are expecting measurable action now. Is your organization equipped to achieve accelerated improvements?

Clients speak

Maine Pointe has been instrumental in helping guide our long-term transportation and distribution strategy. With a tremendous team possessing expertise in many disciplines, they were able to communicate knowledge, and effectively transfer it, to our people. We have been extremely pleased with their performance.”

G. David Delaney Executive VP and Chief Operating Officer, Potash Corp

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 U.S., Mexico and Australia. The major objectives were to deliver sustainable savings and to establish solid business processes. Maine Pointe developed cross-functional teams, and worked closely with other Newgold 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 the Newgold Materials Management organization. Maine Pointe has had a positive impact on our procurement process.”
