Challenged with extreme quality and delivery issues, a plastics manufacturer retained Cornerstone to lead an aggressive operational recovery effort.
The automotive and heavy-duty truck industries are certainly not exceptions to this rule. Don’t get caught off guard by adverse economic circumstances. Pay attention to these key factors to determine how well your business can tolerate an economic or market downturn:
Challenged with an accelerated consolidation and urgent need for synergies, an automobile components manufacturer relied on Cornerstone Consulting to lead them to excellence in safety, quality, cost, and delivery performance.
The Cornerstone Way is rooted in accountability, discipline, and execution. We have the depth and breadth of experience and the tools necessary to rapidly deploy strike teams and quickly assess M&A targets in terms of performance, alignment, and probability of long-term success.

This is fundamental to the overall valuation of a transaction. We have delivered significant business value in many segments, including aftermarket distribution, high-touch retail, class 8 truck, consumer goods, government and defense, food/FDA, Tier 1 and 2, and automotive OEM.
Is your organization paralyzed? Have you lost connection with vital senses? Are you being surprised at the end of month by higher costs and lower margins? Perhaps your operation’s neural network is missing or not populated with the appropriate information.
Time is the most valuable resource in any operation. Why? Because it’s the only one that cannot be recovered once it’s consumed; it is the only true independent variable in life. Time cannot be managed or controlled, only wasted, so structuring work in a way that makes the most of the time available to your business is key in maximizing your efficiency and minimizing cost.
