Welcome to Growing!

Growing Operations Advisors is a small innovative consulting house, specialized in sustainable and substantial performance improvement for small and medium enterprises in the industry and service business.

Our base is Hamburg but we can be everywhere, you can talk to us in German, English and Italian.

Hot topics

We believe that there is an immense need for clarification of priorities and concrete moves in digital manufacturing. Everybody talks about it but few have set direction and speed. Technology suppliers see digital as a gold mine, while end-users are reluctant to follow: missing roadmap, unclear ROI, missing competences are just few of the barriers.

To support our clients, at Growing we are now partnering with experts in advanced robotics and field data acquisition. We offer a quick factory automation walk-through that leads in few weeks to a validated pay-back model and book of requirements for the prioritized applications.

 

Impressions from clients

We recently helped a medium-sized company operating in the food industry to evaluate opportunities to automate the packaging and warehousing area of their biggest facility. Due to the simplicity of the tasks currently done manually, it has been easy to demonstrate a very quick payback! Besides this, many of the tasks today require bending and lifting weights, therefore can be a thread for the health of the workers. It was a clear case for automation!

Nevertheless, besides all the excitement, one minute after the decision it was clear what are the implications of all this: work procedures must be standardized, technical and maintenance competence must increase, redundancies must be offered a fair treatment.

This could be your situation as well, don’t get excited too quick!
