Looking for a stronger strategic future in Industrial Engineering?
Let’s scope out an almost ideal set of ‘must-haves’ for a strong strategic base:
- Your OWN well known brand.
- Your OWN Intellectual Property / design.
- Not being reliant on just making parts for someone else’s product
- YOU pull the levers
- YOU are in control
- YOU can see YOUR future.
- This is NOT a ‘pie-in-the-sky’ strategy … it IS possible and realistic.
To state the obvious, the ending of Automotive production in Australia comes with a severe limitation of traditional demand for many engineered components.
The Australian industrial engineering industry has been able to live off the demand of large car companies and others who have simply included those parts made into their own products (they own the brands).
We’re seeing a lot of businesses that now must search for new products to engineer. The search is not an easy one and there are multiple minds addressing the challenge.
WHAT IF? What-if a manufacturing / engineering business was available that ticks the boxes on ALL of the above listed dot-points?
Well we have such a business now ready to sell … it could be an excellent way forward for your long-term profitability.
If this is of interest then please call me. I’ll be pleased to provide further detail.
