Operations and Supply Chain Consulting Services

Applying Lean methodology is our bread and butter
Introduction

With our stacked team of Lean Six Sigma Black Belts, TPG rapidly identifies areas for process improvement and quick wins in your supply chain processes to save you time and money, as soon as possible. End-to-end supply chain configuration is not straightforward – it is compounded by multiple suppliers and vendors, manufacturing lead times, multiple transportation methods, maintaining inventory levels and fulfilling orders. Supply chain management and wholesale practices continue to present companies with complex challenges.

We have worked with companies of varying sizes to evaluate, improve, or design optimum supply chain solutions, allowing them to address cost and service issues to improve profitability and market competitiveness. Further, we clearly understand the impact of COVID-19 on your business and can quickly provide the support you require to increase the slope of your recovery to the ‘new normal.’
