  TDE Limited

In 2016 TDE Limited was engaged to improve a private equity owned security printing site based in Redditch, Worcestershire.

Within two weeks the operational leadership was changed and a restucturing process was launched.
The workforce was engaged through improved communications and responded almost immediately to reduce the level of non-quality.
Stakeholder expectations had to be managed carefully throughout the change process.
A capital investment programme was formulated and signed off by the board.
New equipment brought improved reliability and increased capacity on bottleneck processes.
The site was successfully handed back to management after nine months.


• Site was returned to compliance versus all Health & Safety legislation
• Non-quality levels were reduced by 50%
• Employee engagement and site morale were improved
• Restructuring programme delivered savings of £288k per annum
• Capital investment programme of £400k signed off and implemented

Business review and consolidation

In Autumn 2011 TDE Limited was employed to carry out a business review for a German parent company with a small operation in the UK, working in a niche Aerospace market.
The English site had a multitude of problems the most urgent of which was an expiring lease within a two-month horizon.
After successfully negotiating an extended lease this allowed TDE Limited to carry out a full business review, consider all options and make its proposal to the German parent company on the way forward.
Once the business review was completed it was agreed to centralise all operations in Germany thus delivering significant cost savings.
A transfer project plan was determined and communicated to all stakeholders and then TDE Limited guided the company through the plant closure process for the UK operation.

The German COO said: "The project couldn't have gone any better".
