"This confirms our comprehensive approach and underscores our expertise in management consulting as well as in classic process consulting," says Lüdtke.

A concept for better results

The original core competence of Swiss company Formbar AG is in foundry model making. The model and mold manufacturer was affected by the industry's tough market and price situation and decreasing utilization of capacity.
"It was a very difficult time then, and many told me that I could not do it," says Kaspar Hürlimann, managing director of Formbar AG. Based on the analysis results, Tebis Consulting worked with Formbar to develop a new target market strategy. In addition to management consulting , the concept included  process consulting, training, coaching and parallel implementation.

Machine run time doubled

The result: a clear plus in efficiency and process reliability. Machine run time was doubled with the same personnel. Thanks to the resulting flexibility, Formbar acquired new customers, increased sales by 70 percent and profit by 40 percent. The company is now established in the Swiss market. "Tebis Consulting gave us outstanding support and certainly contributed significantly to the fact that we are so efficient today," says Hürlimann.
