Huddersfield-based supply chain and logistics consultancy, SCALA, has announced a new ongoing partnership with mergers and acquisitions specialist Global PMI Partners.
The partnership, which started in July 2020, will provide SCALA and its clients with the opportunity to access a wider range of expertise in assessing acquisitions.
Global PMI Partners’ client base will in turn benefit from additional access to industry experts across the supply chain ecosystem when evaluating their future state operating models and releasing value, ensuring that the two separate supply chains can merge into one seamless entity.
The partnership expands SCALA’s existing service offering, supporting companies both pre and post acquisition through an in-depth analysis of supply chain synergy benefits, as well as implementation and change management. This also builds upon SCALA’s Supply Chain Due Diligence offering, launched at the beginning of 2020, which supports M&A activity by identifying mission-critical issues, omissions or errors that weaken or invalidate the reasons for purchase.
Global PMI Partners is a global specialist in M&A integration and divestment projects. The business provides expert consultancy to its global client base following a merger or acquisition, ensuring the deal runs smoothly. This consultancy service can help to safeguard the success of a merger or acquisition and reduces risk for all parties involved.
John Perry, managing director at SCALA, said: “As we emerge from the challenges of COVID-19, businesses will need to review their place in the market, as well as how to go about pursuing growth. In this “new normal”, it is believed there will be a need for companies to audit their business relationships, including potential acquisition and divestment opportunities.
“Given its position as an industry-leader in M&A consultancy, we are extremely pleased to be partnering with Global PMI Partners. The partnership will not only enhance our offering to clients, but also help to solidify our growing reputation as an international consultancy.”
Chris Charlton, partner at Global PMI Partners UK, said: “We are delighted to be working with the team from SCALA and look forward to introducing their skills and expertise to our clients whilst making our carve out and post-acquisition integration capabilities available to SCALA’s clients.”
