Involvement of Principal.
Brian Higginbottom is personally involved
in every consulting assignment and takes
"ownership" and personal responsibility for managing
each project and ensuring client satisfaction.
Personal chemistry is important in the consulting business. It is
essential that the client and the clients' team, as well as the
consultant are mutually comfortable with the personalities, styles
and capabilities of each other if a successful and satisfying working
relationship is to develop. By dealing with an independent consultant,
who participates personally in every assignment, both client and
consultant can measure these issues during the interviewing and
selection phase thus maximising the probability of constructive
working relationships and a successful outcome.
Broad Experience Base.
We have experience with many types of polymer-based businesses,
from very small manufacturing businesses (Up to $5M revenue; 20
to 50 employees) through mid-sized companies (up to $100M revenue
and several hundred employees) up to multi-national Fortune 500
companies. As a result, we are able
to interface well at all levels of client interaction
from the factory floor to the executive
office. Through the personal involvement of the
principal in all projects and, when necessary, the involvement of
experienced partners or associates,
we offer hands-on experience with a wide range of polymers from
thermoplastics, thermosets and cast polymer systems. In particular,
we have an exceptional depth of soft-polymer
processing and manufacturing
experience in liquid silicone rubber (LSR), liquid injection molding
(LIM), thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), elastomeric gel (EG) materials
and rubber keypad production.
Cost Efficient Problem Solving.
Once retained we can immediately bring a laser like focus on your
problem. We are undiluted by normal daily requirements of managing
and running a growing business which often prevents the clients'
own personnel, even if they possess the necessary technical knowledge
and skills, from effectively working the problem themselves. Furthermore,
since we are generally retained on a problem-specific basis, we
are able to bring broad-based seasoned
technical and business experience, new
perspectives and problem
solving skills into your organization only when
most needed and on a very cost-efficient
Knowledge and Skill Transfer to Client Personnel.
Wherever possible, the goal of all
Crinnis consulting projects is to not only assist
in providing solutions to the immediate problem,but to
ensure that on completion of the assignment, the
clients' own "internal team" will have gained sufficient understanding
and training to handle similar problems in the future
without the need for outside consulting help.
