Supply chain consulting firm provides expertise for Canadian company in need of logistical makeover
MARKHAM, ON, Oct. 16, 2012 /CNW/ - As companies across the country feel the effects of a destructive recession, Supply Chain Alliance Partners proves it cannot only provide guidance to help keep a company afloat, but provide a path for improved profitability and continuous operational improvements.
On the second season premiere of CBC's The Big Decision, Supply Chain Alliance Partners is tasked with providing counsel to Synstone, a maker of one of Canada's hottest construction materials, with demand far exceeding supply. With a business model that's out of control, Supply Chain Alliance Partners weighs in on Synstone's urgent turnaround requirements and provides a supply chain road map for the company to meet and exceed client expectations.
"When we were approached by The Big Decision to weigh in on the current scenario at Synstone, we knew we were in for a unique challenge, but we had no idea how close to the edge this company really was," says Mike Croza, Managing Partner, Supply Chain Alliance Partners. "After meeting with the company executives and seeing first-hand the current company business model, we were able to identify a 90-day plan with week-by-week sequenced activity that we felt Synstone needed to take immediately to get back on track and succeed in their industry."
Now in its second season, CBC's The Big Decision provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to struggling Canadian businesses in need of expert advice and a cash injection to turn their organization around. If the companies can rise to the challenge and change their ways, entrepreneurial icons Jim Treliving and Arlene Dickinson will invest in the business and get these companies back in the game.
"Acting as an expert on The Big Decision with two of the most influential and successful business personalities in the country was an incredible experience and we were thrilled to be given the opportunity to showcase our pragmatic and results oriented approach." says Croza. "This is my 20th year of being self-employed and running a consulting business. With my business partner Al Leger, along with our extremely talented employees and supply chain professionals, we bring passion and knowledge to ensure we deliver the expected results to our clients."
On Tuesday, October 16th at 9 p.m. EST, Canadians will tune into CBC's The Big Decision to see if Synstone is able to put Supply Chain Alliance Partners' advice into action to land the most important investment of their lives.
