Proudfoot can significantly improve your Target Operating Model (TOM) by laying the foundation for industry excellence from quarry to client delivery.


Success story

A Target Operating Model (TOM) that transforms your business operations

To compete in today’s highly volatile market, you may need to increase prices to offset inflation and CO2 taxes, boost revenues, and lower cash costs, variable costs (fuel, energy, power) and fixed costs, as well as improve customer service, logistics and transportation. Or, you may need to do all the above.

From Aggregates & Asphalt, Cement, Ready Mix, Concrete Products, and Wood-based or Polymer-based materials, Proudfoot can significantly improve your Target Operating Model (TOM) by laying the foundation for industry excellence from quarry to final client delivery, and maximizing your EBITDA and Return on Net Assets by exercising our core competency of TOM Transformation through people, safely.

In Building Materials alone, Proudfoot has realized over US$1 billion in benefits for our clients through our most recent assignments, and typically achieve an ROI of 4 to 10 times the cost of our programs within the first year.

Increase operational performance: “We are impressed by your capacity to implement and put in place a ‘Coup de Boost.’ After previous projects in operational areas, we wanted to try your methodology on the SG&A costs, and it was the best decision.

Case studies

TOM! Cement: Following a major merger, the executive management at a world-leading building materials company was facing challenges with driving consistent ways of working across 300+ assets spread across 60 countries.

TOM! Aggregate & Asphalt: The Country Chief Executive of a market leader in building materials was in need of a significant cost optimization across 80+ quarries. A target of £15M in cost reductions annually was already established, meaning Proudfoot was challenged with accelerating both the identification and delivery of cost savings.

TOM! Ready Mix Concrete: One of the Regional Ready Mix Divisions of a world leader in building materials had been underperforming for years. Having gone through restructures, the expected turnaround had still not been achieved.
