About the project:
Founded in 1957 by Alessio Calearo, Calearo Group has been a leader in developing advanced technologies for communications for over 50 years.
In 2003, in order to maintain its competitive power, the company opened a production plant in Slovakia then another one in Tunisia in 2009. The Ce.R.Ca., Calearo Research and Development Centre, was inaugurated in 2005 and quickly became the technological core of the company thus providing it with the most advanced technologies and research programs in collaboration with leading international institutes.
The need to maintain a high level of competitiveness after years of crisis in the automotive sector prompted the company to start a reorganization and optimization process of their overhead costs. Aware of the importance of the issue, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Massimo Calearo Ciman commissioned Expense Reduction Analysts. Confident in the efficiency of the success fee approach, the management at Calearo welcomed the collaboration with Expense Reduction Analysts from the very beginning. “When you monitor the company’s core business, it is easy to lose track of overhead costs. Expense Reduction Analysts has led to a greater awareness and sensitivity to several cost categories involved" said Massimo Calearo.
What the client says:
“I have appreciated the professionalism, fairness and transparency of the Expense Reduction Analysts consultants. The results achieved in the sea transport category were significant and we continue to benefit from them even though the project has ended” concludes Chairman and CEO Massimo Calearo.
What Expense Reduction Analysts says:
“The automotive industry is very demanding from every point of view: just-in-time delivery, zero defects, and reduced margins. The core business is subject to continuous improvement. We are pleased that our intervention on overhead costs has contributed to the overall results of the company.” Enrico L. Barazzoni, Client Manager and Analyst
