Made in India
Pharmaceuticals, planes, wind turbines, tyres, clothing, cars… it’s hard to imagine our landscapes, high streets, hospitals or homes without the many products made in India.
India’s industry sector is a major contributor to economic growth that is the envy of the world. Mott MacDonald has been prominent in the sector for nearly half a century, working with household names including Adani, Aditya Birla, AstraZeneca, Atul, Bayer, Dai-ichi, Godrej, Lanxess, Indofil, Intas, Jubilant, MRF, Nirma, Piramal, SRF and Vinati. Whether working with clients from project inception right through to operation, or appointed to assist with one specialist aspect of a project, the company’s experts add advantage that will enable its clients to get ahead, and stay there.
Making the money work
That quest for success starts with the drafting of a robust business case for investment in a new, expanded or improved facility. Mott MacDonald seeks to understand clients’ strategic aims and also any pressures and obstacles. That enables assumptions and ‘tried and tested’ thinking to be challenged. At best, it paves the way for innovative alternative solutions to problems, process re-engineering and supply chain improvements, often resulting in substantial efficiency savings further down the line.
More than what’s right
Engaging, communicating with and consulting stakeholders has become an ever more important factor in project success – failing to do so risks objections to proposed developments and resulting production delay, with resultant loss of revenue and potentially market share. Meanwhile, proactive management of environmental performance, to comply and even go beyond legal requirements, not only helps clients stay on the right side of regulators, but to win the trust and respect of local stakeholders and customers alike.
Driving strong business
Mott MacDonald’s commercial advisory services draw on a long heritage in management consultancy, helping businesses adapt to change and position for growth. Investment decisions are supported by the firm’s infrastructure finance business, which provides expertise that helps to secure investment and manage out commercial risks, helping lenders and borrowers to maximise returns.
Seeing the bigger picture
One of the keys to Mott MacDonald’s strength is its multisector capabilities, with transport, power, water, environment, building structures and services engineering, and health and education alongside industry skills. From inception to operation, the ability to pull in the right expertise contributes to more integrated, better optimised solutions.
Looking to the future, facilities created now will be in operation for decades to come, calling for attention to design and build quality, which underpin a facility’s ability to achieve and sustain output. Another key consideration is resilience – understanding vulnerabilities and dependencies, and acting to prevent harm resulting from external pressures such as climate change.
Almost 50 years after opening for business in India, Mott MacDonald’s industry consultants are thinking ahead, planning for the challenges and opportunities of the next half century, and beyond.
