Making You The Experts In​

results speak for themselves

Many of our clients have multi-site operations with a worldwide geographical span. We work flexibly to support globally/regionally coordinated initiatives or individual sites in isolation. To do this, we balance both corporate standardisation and location-specific technical, capability and cultural needs. 

The Henkan Team have made a significant contribution to the progressive success of the Heineken TPM programme over the last 3 years. As a valued partner for change, they have supported us through the transfer of their knowledge and engaging approach.

The support from Henkan is contributing to speeding up and reinforcing our program. I want to mention the cooperation with John C. for the senior Auditing process, which represents the keyframe to keep consistency and pace. His wide WCM competence and open mind approach made easy the model alignment and effective feedback.
