This eastern US based company was motivated to remain competitive and wanted results in a business area struggling with competitive pressure. An SIO team helped them create over 20 solutions to their most costly energy and process challenges. These solutions represented over $4 million in savings with a 1.1 year payback. Just one idea saved $400,000 for a cost of only $25,000. The SIO engagement also empowered the plant team with a renewed sense optimism and purpose. In the past, this plant had been a questionable "portfolio fit" but after the project, it became part of the company's core business.
