What We Do

Oliver Wyman supports manufacturing companies in their efforts to realize sustainable, profitable growth. We develop customized solutions to address the needs of each client’s unique situation – we don’t believe in one-size-fits-all.  Consequently, our team includes both sector and functional experts. 

Growth & Strategy

Profitable growth and the continuous adjustment of the business model are a key challenge for the management of manufacturing companies. Value Driven Business Designs developed by Oliver Wyman are based on the analysis of value shifts within an industry, which enables the identification of future profit zones that are systematically developed by means of alternative business models.

Mergers & Acquisitions, Post Merger Integration

Our Mergers & Acquisitions and Post-Merger Integration team offers extensive value improvement opportunities by means of a unique combination of in-depth industry knowledge and long-term experience in the international transaction business. Our services for corporate clients from industry, i.e., strategic investors, are complemented by a tailor-made consulting offering for financial investors.


Oliver Wyman offers both Independent business reviews (IBR) and Sustainable Restructuring Concepts. With a focus on manufacturing industries we understand the specifics required to turn around business and return to the growth path.


Our Organization experts build on manifold experience, examples and benchmarks to develop organizations structures required today to support international growth and fast decision-making in an environment that becomes more and more complex.

Sourcing & Supply Chain

Direct material cost is the key lever to operational and financial performance of our industrial clients. The Industrial Products team at Oliver Wyman has a long and proven track record in optimization of product costs and in sourcing.
