Building Materials & Construction

Building a bridge to overcome volatility for better growth

The building materials and construction industry is rapidly evolving.

Globalized supply chains, volatile labor and capital costs, new regulations, and increasing competitive pressures are only just a subset of dynamics that the industry face today.

The inflation and recession threats observed currently in major economies poses a real threat to the growth and value story of B2B-companies in the construction sector. While supply becomes more volatile and less predictable, demand shifts and new channels as well as competitors arise. Now is the time to set the sails to future growth.   

Companies must focus on market innovation and value propositions like never before. With over three decades of experience working with residential and commercial building materials manufacturing and technology companies, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, and contractors as well as installers, we can help you meet this challenge.

By helping companies to understand their customers, channel partners, and competitive positioning we support our clients to grow sustainably, profitably and increase value to their shareholders.

From advising on how to maximize value from innovations, steer price structures for higher profits, enable sales teams to become more effective and efficient to managing the shift to omni-channel business or designing customer loyalty programs, our dedicated and experienced global teams are here to support your journey to better growth within the building materials and construction industry.
