Building Products

Manufacturing today is a game with new rules—global rules. Clients compare price and features online, tight margins are required to be in the competitive set, your performance is constantly monitored, and contract renewal is not a given. Our people have built and run manufacturing companies around the globe, and we bring a practical view based on decades of experience. FortéONE partners with manufacturing companies and works rapidly to assess overall manufacturing performance, identify priorities for improvement and implement actions required to achieve results.

Owners also know that all areas of the company need to work and grow together. FortéONE’s approach to the manufacturing industry encompasses that big picture view of the elements you need to win:  Strategy, Revenue Growth, Operations, Finance, System & Information, Strategy, and Organizational Development. 


A few of the ways we have worked “in house” with manufacturing companies to help them grow sales and profits include:

  • End-to-end SIOP processes to ensure low cost/consistent quality production

  • Ensure the organization is structured and staffed appropriately

  • Implement lean processes throughout the operation

  • Plant consolidations and new facility design and construction

  • Implement Six Sigma principles, improve throughput using the theory of constraints, conduct and lead Kaizen events, and employ other efficiency improvement and waste reduction initiatives

  • Perform process and production line analysis, and optimize all plant processes

  • Assess product profitability and perform stock-keeping unit (SKU) rationalization at a plant and firm-wide level

  • Supplement production, assembly and distribution leadership

  • Assess plant personnel at all levels, including management, production staff, maintenance, supply chain, outsourced functions and liaisons, and upgrade or restructure as required

  • Align overall strategy with the best market opportunities

  • Assist with crisis management planning and execution, including product recalls
