Industrial Equipment Companies Choose Pinnacle Strategies for Productivity Improvement
Plano, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/29/2013 -- Industrial equipment companies operate in an environment of challenging market realities shaped by pressure from low-cost manufacturers, supply base instability, complex supply chains, and volatile commodity prices. To remain successful under such conditions frequently requires breakthrough transformation. Pinnacle Strategies helps by providing a focused, actionable, measurement-driven roadmap to rapid results.
Several Industrial equipment companies have found cost savings using Pinnacle Strategies’ proven systems of improvement. Mark Woeppel, President and CEO of Pinnacle Strategies, recounts one company’s need to increase production without increasing costs, “When Reliable Machinist Corporation’s leading customer demanded more gate valves, RMC needed to ramp production without increasing its operations costs. By working with Pinnacle Strategies, gate value production improved 60 percent in three months with no new machines.”
Similarly, Koch Heat Transfer/Brown Fintube grew sales 35 percent with a consistent 95 percent on-time delivery.

According to Woeppel, “Dixie Iron Works increased profitability by almost 2,900 percent. Working with Pinnacle Strategies, Dixie Iron Works grew seven-fold from 3 to 20 million dollars in sales in the past nine years. By following the practical thinking of Theory of Constraints, Dixie was able to make powerful, constructive changes to its operations, marketing, sales, and organizational strategies.”
