Chemicals companies are wrestling with major changes that will affect the way they do business. Industry consolidation, globalisation and e-business are just a few of the challenges that are impacting performance. Others include regulatory compliance; environmental, health and safety issues; an increasingly demanding customer base.
Chemicals companies must reduce costs, integrate their supply chains, improve performance and provide their customers with specialised services. We can help you both effectively respond to these and other challenges, while uncovering and exploiting new opportunities to gain competitive advantage.
