Support for greenfield projects
When exploring international options, you may determine that opening up a new facility is the best investment you can make for your operation. A greenfield project is one of the most challenging processes in international operations. You will need to do everything - identify a site; hire staff; create a supply chain; and acquire required government licensing.
Because our global business consultants have been involved in a number of greenfield projects, they are able to deliver quick and efficient solutions, as well as provide the key business relationships you’ll need, such as bankers, lawyers, and local advisors.

A Midwest-based automotive supplier does business wherever its demanding OEM customers do business, including China, Mexico, India, Korea, Europe, and North America. Over the last 15 years, our global business consultants have gone into the new markets ahead of the company’s expansion, preparing the groundwork for seamless startups and profitable ongoing operations. We’ve identified partners, qualified engineering resources, and conducted quality audits.
Opening the Chinese market
The global services team recently worked with a company to identify the best location in China for a sales and marketing office. The company depended on the team to recruit and interview potential staff, as well as identify and evaluate office space. Four months after opening the office, they got their first Chinese contract. Our global services team is now helping them to develop their manufacturing base and find the most capable suppliers for components such as fine blankings, stampings, and other critical subcomponents.
