Green Machines UK's business review leads to overseas move
The parent company of Falkirk, Scotland-based Green Machines UK tells us it has undertaken a review of the overall Green Machines business, with the aims of: providing a more competitive product, on a more flexible basis, to customers and partners; retaining the well-known high-quality standards, secured by ISO certification, and effecting a general improvement of the Green Machines overall brand performance.
During this review process, one of the scenarios Green Machines evaluated was the possibility of moving all production from Scotland to the European mainland - and, especially, to a location closer to the M&F parent company's main business area....
The benefits of this option includes a significant reduction in the cost base as well as the opportunity to partner with a well-known and very experienced production partner.
This preferred solution will also give Green Machines the ability to expand and refresh the existing product range where necessary and would give the company the opportunity to supply the market with a significantly more competitive product to satisfy its requirements.
Additionally, this would protect the high quality expectations of the Green Machines brand, e.g. through existing ISO certifications and state-of-the-art machinery in the production process.
Furthermore, the proposed change in the production setup, will enable Green Machines to significantly expand its direct market presence and handling of the market in the Far East and a major part of the South American market and will be structured to better support its partners more efficiently in the future.
All Green Machines employees have been informed and are currently discussing possible scenarios jointly. The final decision will be taken by the end of the year, at the latest.
In addition, Green Machines is committed to ensuring that its production and delivery capabilities are not affected anytime during any potential upcoming transition process.
"For our partner suppliers, our aim is to maintain the highest quality standards for our machines, and it is our intention to continue working with our current suppliers and honouring our commitments to them," says Otto Rainer, CEO of Green Machines International?.
