Global Manufacturing Footprint Services

Improving Manufacturing Operations

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.
