Featured Case Studies

Profit Velocity collaborates with consultants, private equity investors and manufacturing management teams throughout North America, Asia and Europe.

Electronics Case Study

Find out how we helped a leading electronic components maker in Asia drive up profit per machine hour by an incredible 400%, increase operating margin for its new product family from 41% to 51% and add $10 million its bottom line each year.

Packaging Case Study

See how we gave a world-class packaging manufacturer the visibility to change how it viewed its product costing and which contracts to focus on, renegotiate or walk away from. Based on our insights, the company increased operating margins from 11% to 16% and annual operating profit by $88 million in just two years.

Our work with complex manufacturers across a broad array of industries has made one point unmistakably clear. When executives make even modest shifts to their product and customer mix based on profit-per-time metrics, they are able – time and time again – to add an astonishing 3% to 5% of revenue to their bottom line. Now that’s smart manufacturing!

We know this sounds too good to be true. We’ve heard that more than a few times. But the data is the data, and the results are the results. Highly complex manufacturers are unknowingly sitting on vast hidden reserves of incremental profit buried deep in their data. Once they implement time-based profit metrics, they’re able to transform the new insights revealed into smart manufacturing strategies and tactics that unlock the profit flows they are already capable of delivering to shareholders.
