You may have seen that we’ve recently launched an exciting new Joint Venture with a London-based specialist investment advisory business called Partner Capital. The Joint Venture, called the cpcf Accelerator was launched with one goal in mind: To give high-growth businesses the opportunity to realise their growth potential by securing funding quicker and with more certainty.
Simple. We recognised a need in the market. From our experience, many of our clients, high-growth businesses themselves, and many of the people we have spoken to have shared their desire to grow, but alongside that, their frustration at not always knowing how to, or where to start.
Here’s an example:
After a 5-year decline in performance, Tarmac Toplock needed radical business transformation – and they knew that. Once serving as Europe’s largest aircrete factory, strategic review and implementation identified the need for new commercial, management and supply-chain strategies and an urgent turnaround in staff morale. So, they decided to make the smart move and turn to one of our founders, Hardy Giesler, for help.
Hardy was appointed MD of the business and immediately got to work. A site consolidation programme reduced capacity, increased utilisation levels and achieved targeted unit cost reductions. This helped to fund a £25m investment programme to address product quality issues and client services requirements.
Hardy also established the Manufacturing Excellence programme, improving production management capability and knowledge sharing across all 16 sites.
