Industries
Knowing the industries.
Understanding them. Changing them.

Every industry ticks differently. And only those who know the specific mechanisms of the relevant industry are in a position to increase values in a targeted and results-oriented way.

We are familiar with industries not only from industry analyses, but also from our experience in active implementation. Most important of all however, is that we bundle our competences in internal industry centres, which take a critical look at all industry-specific technologies and market developments. And so we can deliver real added value for the client when consulted.

Why not take advantage of our expertise to manage your sector-specific risks, realise opportunities and identify and thus activate your individual value levers? For more resilience and a successful entrepreneurial future.

Capital goods/engineering:

German mechanical and plant engineering has been able to secure a pioneering role on the world market with its value proposition of constantly evolving innovation and premium quality. In the process, the sector has advanced to become one of the main engines of the German economy, employing around one million people. In the face of increasing digitalisation, growing global competition, and the need to guarantee the sustainability of both products and supply chains, the global pre-eminence of this German sector is looking increasingly wobbly. To overcome these challenges, operating companies must fundamentally and rapidly adjust their ways of thinking and action strategies, and modularise their product ranges. For the company to be able to seize the opportunities that arise through change, and to transform these into future competitive advantages, it is crucial for it to set strategic priorities and to develop a long-term roadmap.    

Struktur Management Partner combines two key building blocks necessary for the further development of machinery producers and plant manufacturers:

  1. solid experience in the industry, gained over the course of more than 100 projects; and 
  2. profound expertise in digitalisation. We draw on this wealth of experience and expertise in order to design and then implement sustainable business models in cooperation with our clients.

We will be delighted to assist you with the further development of your company.

Energy industry:

Renewable energies are the growth drivers in the energy sector. Traditional business models in this environment face challenges such as digitalisation, decentralisation and the degression of costs. In addition to a constant spirit of innovation, companies need a high level of operative efficiency as a fundamental basis in order to progress with a sustainably profitable business model in a market subject to continuous price erosion.

Do you need a partner for your organisation to help you implement these challenges? Then you have come to the right place.

Automotive industry

The automotive industry is undergoing the greatest upheaval in its history. The effects of key megatrends such as e-mobility, digitalisation in vehicles and production, and a shift towards Asia are already having a clear impact. But you certainly don’t need an adviser to tell you that. However, what this means for medium-sized automotive suppliers and how they should deal with it is not quite so obvious, and nor is it sufficiently elucidated in the generally accessible studies and treatises on the transformation of the automotive industry.

Our interdisciplinary team of automotive industry transformation experts deals intensively with the effects for medium-sized supplier companies in the automotive industry, and suggests possible action strategies. In scientifically accompanied studies, we record trends among decision-makers from medium-sized companies and financers. And with our many years’ experience gained in the course of more than 110 projects in the automotive industry, our industry experts will be delighted to assist you with trends and developments, but also in negotiating with OEMs and in the implementation of measures to optimise operations.

Chemical industry and pharmaceuticals:

Companies in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry in Germany currently face major challenges, which have been exacerbated by recent developments. Cost pressure and the need for efficient processes are increasing due to rising energy costs and competitors from countries with abundant supplies of low-cost raw materials and low wage costs. Meeting these challenges and innovating or using digitalisation to improve operational processes can push smaller companies in the sector in particular to their limits.

Acting as your sparring partners, our experts will help you to rise to these challenges and to see them as opportunities that will allow you to set your company up as a resilient force for the future. To this end, we offer you the right tools and a customised, jointly developed solution concept, and we can also support you with its implementation if required.

Retail trade:

“Innovate or die.” All retail industries both nationally and globally have been in a state of constant upheaval for years. Everyone is feeling the changes and new challenges. Growing pressure of competition and an increasing awareness of quality and sustainability on the part of the consumer are shaping the market.

On the other hand, the changes also offer all sorts of opportunities. For food retailers, wholesalers, retailers, discounters or hypermarkets. For textile retailers, shoe retailers, e-commerce pure players or self-service department stores.

For our trade specialists and clients, the central task of sustainable change management is to use their expertise in the industry and wealth of experience in implementation to exploit these opportunities. Stationary retail performance, innovative e-commerce, and operative analytical excellence form the triumvirate of a successful and modern retail focus. So when do you want to begin with the successful implementation?

Consumer goods:

Whether it’s the price, the brand, or the quality: many aspects can determine the sometimes highly subjective purchasing decisions surrounding everyday consumer and durable consumer goods. “The customer is king” applies more than ever. And all the more so against the background of digital transformation and the rapid shift towards online commerce. Customer requirements for a transparent, personalised range of offers with almost complete price and market transparency are increasing enormously here. Nevertheless, in our day-to-day consulting, we again and again find a lack of knowledge of target customer needs and of the respective company’s own value positioning in this highly competitive environment.

Companies that ignore general market trends and persist in hanging on to the status quo may be at risk of losing market share in the long term, threatening their very existence. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Consistent exploitation of the potentials of digitalisation is likely to result in a considerable improvement in competitiveness.

With a wealth of experience gained over many years and in the course of more than 131 projects in the consumer goods sector, our industry experts will be delighted to offer their support with the value-oriented re-design of your business model. We help companies to align the value proposition of their products with changing customer requirements in order to add value.

We identify your value-enhancement potentials and focus on the relevant earning leverage: efficient cost structures, value-oriented digitalisation and brand strategy, optimum pricing, an optimised distribution strategy, the command of value-generating complexity and a profitable innovation strategy. And together with you, we implement these optimisation measures in your operations.

Measurably successful. Decidedly better.

Experience of the industry: yes. But not operationally blinkered. In our work, we rely not only on sound knowledge of the sector, but above all on a methodical approach that has proven itself across all industries. The focus is on medium-sized companies with a typical turnover of between EUR 50 million and EUR 750 million.

They also benefit from experiences gained in other sectors. And in times in which once cast-iron industry norms are actually proving quite changeable, that is a real advantage. As is our cross-industry recommendation rate of 98%.
