Ecrimesa Group (Spain)
Industry sector: manufacture of high-technology steel parts
Cost categories: Transport
The Ecrimesa Group, based in Santander, Spain, structures its offer through 3 branches: Ecrimesa, which has produced over 6,000 references since its beginning in 1963; Mimecrisa, a pioneer in the MIM (Metal Injection Molding) technology, a company that started in 1991 and is extremely effective when it comes to producing pieces of complicated geometry; and Mecansa, that was incorporated in the group in 2005 to cover the machining area. After the economic crisis, all three brands were reinforced and together they are now generating a turnover of around 33 million Euros.
What the Client says
“We have survived the crisis thanks to our good financial health, and are back to a good performance. 40% of our production is designed for the automotive sector where the competition is fierce.
Our quality standards are very high; yet to hold our position at the highest level, it is essential to provide great flexibility and speed when delivering samples, making modifications or when delivering the product itself. We are very surprised by the savings achieved in the transport category.
We thought that we were very much in control of spending, but we have obtained a drastic reduction of our expenses that was unexpected. Indeed we accept the Expense Reduction Analysts approach because it is not aggressive at all. Without upfront costs, and with a fee linked to the savings achieved, companies have nothing to lose.”
Alejandro Martínez, CEO, Group Ecrimesa
What Expense Reduction Analysts says
“The company has so far done a good job; however they had neither the time nor the resources to carry out an in-depth investigation. For most businesses, it does not make any economic sense to have experts in each cost category.”
