ERA Helps Non-profit Manufacturer Save $275,000 on Core Materials

 

A non-profit manufacturer, who provides employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities, partnered with Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) to streamline core spends related to the production of plastic corrugated totes and trays.

 

The client’s objective was to reduce material costs across its three locations and was interested in ERA’s ability to assess relevant commodity market changes. ERA analysed purchasing across chemicals and raw materials to determine possible savings opportunities.

 

Using Industry Knowledge to Save 21%

An ERA review found $275,000 in annual savings (21 percent) across the client’s core spending categories, which totalled over $1 million annually. ERA was able to achieve this by monitoring market changes and utilising industry knowledge to negotiate favourable pricing with suppliers.

 

Additional Cash Flow Put Towards New Hires

The client was able to use realised savings to both boost their bottom line and reinvest in their core mission of helping people with disabilities find meaningful employment.
