Merry Christmas from io-consultants!
Heidelberg - 20.12.2017
Another eventful and successful year for io-consultants is slowly drawing to an end.
2017 brought continued growth, many new clients, and the conclusion of numerous major long-term projects. With our professional and expert support, TRUMPF, HARIBO and pharmaceuticals company Sanofi all opened new logistics centres, Pfizer inaugurated a state-of-the-art continuous manufacturing plant, and several sites within BMW’s after-sales logistics network went into operation. Also on course for expansion, our SME client EVER Pharma in Jena began construction work on their new production building. With a view to future assignments, we completed several commissioned strategy studies relating to supply chain structures, thus laying the foundations for upcoming projects.
A major milestone in 2017 was the establishment of our new office in Munich, which has helped us extend our presence in the Bavarian capital and bridge the distance to our clients in the region. In Heidelberg, we welcomed 90 visitors to our headquarters for our “Resilience in the Supply Chain” theme day. The feedback on this event was so strong that we are planning a follow-up in 2018, this time focussing on another up-to-the-minute topic.
We furthermore intensified our cooperation with both the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT) and TU Munich. “These and many more activities and strategic initiatives allow us an even more positive outlook on our future business development. We’re all set for continuing our healthy growth in 2018,” says Thomas Kilimann, Managing Director at io-consultants.
As the year closes, it is the perfect time for io-consultants’ management to thank all clients and partners for the excellent and productive collaboration and, of course, the trust and confidence placed in us. We would also like to send a special thank you to all our staff in Heidelberg, Munich, Dubai, Singapore, Bethlehem (PA, USA), and Hong Kong, who, with their dedication and commitment, have each contributed to the company’s great success.
Season’s greetings, Happy New Year, and good health and happiness to you and your families! We look forward to many more exciting projects with you in 2018.
