Interim Management in the Mechanical Industry

MANAGERIM provides you with interim managers who are experts in the mechanical industry to help you meet your transformation challenges

Mechanics covers all the techniques used to design and manufacture machines, tools, production systems, and everyday objects...

The sector serves all industrial sectors and contributes to their transformation: automotive, aerospace, machinery and equipment, valves, energy, optical and precision instruments, medical and surgical equipment, etc.

The sector is marked by strong international competition, particularly European, and by large prime contractors putting pressure on prices.

Companies in the sector must continually strengthen their differentiation and face many challenges:

  • Continuing efforts to modernize, robotize and transform production facilities to increase production capacity and make them cleaner, more flexible and scalable, which is essential to gain new contracts, especially internationally
  • Accelerate the digital transformation of their tools, methods and processes across the entire chain (R&D, industrialization, manufacturing, maintenance, quality control, marketing, after sales, customer relations, etc.)
  • Stimulate continuous performance improvement to drive lower production costs and greater competitiveness
  • Reinforce development and innovation efforts and bring new technological solutions to all other economic sectors at the service of major challenges: mobility, demographics, energy transition, environment…
  • Stimulate HR management policy, training and talent management, and retention
  • Optimize resource mobilization (energy in particular) and reduce the environmental impact of their activities
