Cutting costs

 

Cost saving measures

Focussing on staffing levels, correct choice of equipment and efficient sourcing of materials. Typically an immediate 30% saving on the materials budget is possible. Often modifying entrenched and old fashioned methods can release considerable savings in staff, equipment and materials.

Careful monitoring of the latest developments in technology, combined with established relationships with suppliers means we can advise on the appropriate equipment to purchase and from where.  Then crucially, deciding whether the purchase is actually necessary!
