Innovation & Growth
Innovation to Foster Growth
Manufacturers continue to place sales growth at the top of their list as a business priority. Solutions are available to provide innovation and growth strategies for your company whether through market diversification, export services, innovation development or sales and marketing strategies.
Leverage Technology to Enhance Your Business
Technology can impact your business in many ways. It can affect your bottom line by using a new information technology system that delivers improved communications and operational efficiencies. Technology can also affect your top line through the adoption of new technologies leading to new products and markets. Whether you need assistance with IT Selection, IT implementation or other ERP services, CMTC can help.
Continuous Improvement Leading to Higher Productivity
Manufacturers want to continuously improve their operational performance. Increasing productivity, reducing costs and improving performance are critical goals of a company that wants to approach or achieve world class status. Lean manufacturing techniques, value stream mapping, and facilities and plant layout can all lead to higher productivity while cutting costs.
Develop Quality Standards to Ensure Compliance
Manufacturing success often depends on compliance to certain quality management standards as well as the quality of the products you produce. Anything less than excellent quality is a burden on a company’s customer relationships, profits, and employees. CMTC provides services to implement these standards and meet the certification requirements from ISO 9000 to HAACP.
Recruitment and Human Resources to Assist You in All Aspects Related to Your Workforce
As a manufacturer, you may not have the staff or the ability to handle everyday human resource issues such as, interviewing and hiring new employees. Once you have new employees hired, you may be lacking essential guidelines in the areas of harassment training or the ability to provide employee handbooks. You may need to conduct an HR audit to make sure you are in compliance with all legal issues and to ensure you have adequate policies and procedures in place. And, if you want to keep good employees, don’t forget about a rewards and recognition program.
Use Sustainability as a Competitive Advantage
Manufacturers are using their level of sustainability as a marketing and competitive advantage. You need to identify and remove waste from the manufacturing process, reducing energy use and cost. It also means addressing environmental issues leading to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint.
Develop a Skilled Workforce for the Future
Building a high performing workforce can be challenging. In the next few years, a sizable number of workers will be retiring, taking their skills and experience with them. Finding capable workers to fill this void will be difficult. CMTC can assist you with workforce training and management development.
Create an Efficient and Agile Supply Chain
Geopolitical and catastrophic events around the world have focused attention on having an agile and optimized supply chain. Manufacturers are evaluating the total cost of the products they produce whether you have an individual supplier or a more robust supply chain. Risk, control and protection of intellectual property are critical areas of concern in supply chain management.
Improve Your Global Competitiveness
California is a prime location for exporting your U.S. made products since 95% of the world market resides outside of the U.S. borders. Even if manufacturers look to Canada and Mexico for exporting their goods, you could increase your profits considerably. CMTC offers an export management program to get you started on the road to exporting.
