Case Study

Orthopedic / Contract Manufacturing

Strategic need for customer OEM expansion, flexibility and cost effectiveness are key

A small sized orthopaedic contract manufacturer based out of Indiana (USA)
has a strategic need to expand their customers base. They are operating in a niche market and both of their largest customers have merged increasing their dependency while their purchase orders are decreased. They know they have to go international to grow but do not want to hire someone without knowing the market and investing in the costs and risks associated with hiring in Europe.
