Restructuring in operations, engineering and purchasing - Inalfa Roof Systems

Inalfa Roof Systems, one of the international providers of vehicle equipment, develops and assembles innovative car and truck roof systems for almost all global automotive manufacturers. The roof systems market is very competitive among the four companies that compete for business with the major manufacturers. Small volumes per product, a high degree of innovation in product concepts and small batch sizes in sourcing create risk of potential cost overruns in the business.

As part of the strategy to respond effectively to these business risks, PA helped Inalfa plan and implement a fundamental restructuring programme in both Europe and the US and in core business areas in purchasing, engineering, operations.

During the implementation phase of about four months a complete programme organisation has been built up and has delivered about 0.5% more EBIT margin for Inalfa. Improvement activities and benefit realisation still continue with delivered annual savings of another 1.5% EBIT margin.

"Without PA, Inalfa would have struggled to achieve the results so quickly, reconciling our objectives – immediate profitability and long-term product quality – and coaching us to this performance.” - Ton Houben, former CEO, Inalfa Roof Systems
