    SCALING UP OPERATIONS TO ACHIEVE INCREASED MARKET SHARE AND PROFITABILITY

Working with the former owner of Schöttli, CGS implemented a Buy & Build strategy with add-on acquisitions in China and the United States. By integrating these new companies and implementing a global organizational structure, CGS significantly expanded the Schöttli Group’s market share and increased its profitability.

  • acquired and integrated a company in China and a company in the United States.
  • strengthened the group’s presence in the growing Asian markets.
  • focused on profitable business segments and expanded the product portfolio.
  • implemented a group-wide operations concept that enhanced production capacity planning and boosted efficiency levels.

Impact:

  • The management team and its leadership capabilities were strengthened.
  • Worldwide headcount increased by 33%.
  • EBITDA margin more than doubled.
  • Thanks to its innovations and improved operational efficiency, the Schöttli Group has become a globally leading moldmaker for high-volume medical applications, caps and closures.
