Fractional adjustments to strategy and performance can make or break results in manufacturing more so than in almost any other industry. A globally integrated supply chain is the new normal. Here at TRANSEARCH we recognize that with intensified competition from overseas and increasingly demanding investors, there is no room for mediocrity. Logistical costs are rising, wages in overseas labor markets are surging, and intellectual property rights are routinely threatened. Meanwhile, principles of Lean and Six Sigma are transcending the shop floor and being applied in boardroom strategy.

Overall the success of our manufacturing clients is forged by consistency, efficiency, and predictability – just as it is with TRANSEARCH assignments. In order to deliver value to mission-critical segments of a manufacturing organization, we provide a range of executive talent solutions. For more than 30 years our core business has been executive search; however, we also provide stand-alone leadership assessments and onboarding assistance, as well as an option for building a robust talent pipeline.

On average, consultants in our manufacturing practice have more than 20 years of industry experience. In order to cultivate strong, longstanding relationships with leadership talent, many of these consultants regularly attend major conferences, including – IMTS, the AHR Expo, CONEXPO, ProMat, FABTECH, and AeroDef Manufacturing. With senior consultants based in manufacturing hubs like Chicago, Detroit, Dallas, and New Jersey (among other locations), our team is well-networked into key markets for talent. Moreover, we have a proven track record of partnering with companies ranging from private equity owned portfolio companies to large multinational corporations headquartered around the world.
