Reorganizing central purchasing for a leading steel and metal supplier:

After the internal restructuring of a listed steel and metal supplier in the sales region of Europe, the company was not seeing the purchasing synergy effects it had hoped for. Forell & Tebroke began by carrying out an extensive analysis of its current processes and the organizational structure. The next step was to develop a new organizational matrix and a standard process. The responsibilities within the matrix were defined and successfully implemented using the RACI schema.

Potential annual savings: about 5 million euros

Strategic development: a comprehensive market analysis in the stainless-steel industry

For a customer in the stainless-steel industry, Forell & Tebroke analyzed two specific stainless-steel markets. Using their specialized expertise, we were able to identify all of the relevant competitors, and created detailed profiles of the 55 most important ones. In addition to the traditional facts & figures, the team also performed a SWOT analysis for each profile.
Based on this information, the customer – a leading manufacturer of rustproof flat and long products – was able to reorient its strategy.

Carve-out of three business units into independent subsidiaries

Christian Tebroke handled project management for the carve-out of three existing business units into new, independent subsidiaries of a leading powder metallurgy manufacturer. Thanks to the initial analysis of processes, products, and existing organizational interdependencies, these aspects were separated out and transferred in a logical way. Within a few months, three new companies were created.

Savings: in the double-digit millions of euros
