Improving Manufacturing & Supply Chain Efficiency

Navigating the challenges of manufacturing and sourcing in China can be increasingly difficult, given factors such as rising labor costs, unpredictable tariffs, changing regulations, and political tensions. However, there are opportunities for manufacturers who have a clear understanding of business-friendly geographies and can establish operations and build relationships strategically.

EWA's Global Manufacturing Footprint Services specialize in analyzing a company's operations, products, and markets to identify areas of duplication, reduce costs, and improve efficiency and quality. Our team handles the complexities of reducing costs, streamlining operations, and ensuring compliance with local rules and regulations in carefully selected geographies.

When considering changes such as closing, consolidating, or relocating operations and sourcing, it's crucial to approach these decisions with experience, thorough planning, and a detail-oriented project team to avoid jeopardizing operational stability, supplier relationships, and your brand reputation worldwide.

Effective action and implementation greatly influence a company's worldwide operational stability and financial results.

Building a Strong, Productive & Ethical Culture

The success of a company relies heavily on the abilities and attitudes of its leaders, managers, staff, and suppliers. In today's age of open communication, ethics, honesty, and responsibility are more important than ever. While business cultures may vary, there is a growing expectation for ethical behavior in the global marketplace. Companies must ensure that their management and employees can identify and address fraudulent and unethical acts such as corruption, kickbacks, and conflicts of interest.
