Marlen needed to consolidate thermal manufacturing operations into their Riverside, MO headquarters. This required critical equipment relocation from Bristow, OK to Riverside. To accomplish this, efforts were focused on meeting Marlen’s timeline, budget, downtime expected during this move, and delivering overall results. The project included crafting a layout to assure optimal workflow constrained by a finite footprint.
Core Catalysts worked collaboratively with the Marlen team to ensure that their specific needs were both identified and met. The client’s budget was watched closely, and any issues were communicated to the client and resolved quickly. The following steps were taken to complete the project:
Core Catalysts set the client at ease with a thorough and time and budget conscious work ethic. To be certain that Marlen benefited from Core Catalysts’ efforts, special attention was paid to the floor plan. The layout was designed in such a way that future installations and material flow were accounted for to make sure that output would always be efficiently maximized. This was done using only the necessary project management hours as a means of minimizing downtime and to complete the project within the given timeframe. Some contingency plans were also put into place to help the client deal with any possible issues with equipment in the future, and to easily bring Core Catalysts back on board should our services be required once more.
“Core Catalysts understood our needs and was able to match us with a project manager to get the job done. The project was done on time, under budget and with no surprises. Appreciate Dan and his project management skills.”
