Global expansion success

After an early setback, an industrial company resets its strategy

Oct 11, 2021

Learn how one company turned its delayed global expansion plans around.

A US-based food ingredient company’s sales in Continental Europe were steadily increasing and forecasted to continue to grow. But the company’s ability to globally expand its operations was limited by distance to its customers and operating costs in the region.

After three years and several failed attempts working with a commercial real estate broker to find a location in Eastern Central Europe, the company was no closer to its goals.

To keep moving, company leaders hired RSM to help. RSM’s strategic advisors helped the company:

  • Clearly define its financial and non-financial goals
  • Create a decision framework that removed uncertainty
  • Leverage previous research, as well as perform new research, to accelerate the decision timeline
  • Find multiple options to choose the best-fit location
