Having met Matt Allmand in discussions with the Nebraska MEP, his real-world experience and facilitation really expanded our vision and helped us develop a strategic plan to propel Brehmer Manufacturing forward. It is great to have resources like this available in Nebraska, and is extremely beneficial.
Brehmer contracted with the Nebraska MEP, part of the MEP National Network™, and its director, Matt Allmand, to provide consulting related to developing their business strategy. Joe Brehmer felt that Matt Allmand of the Nebraska MEP would be able to assist the organization in these areas based on Allmand’s experience running a manufacturer. This process involved multiple meetings to develop three key strategic focuses to enhance growth in their products and services.
During the strategic development and deployment sessions, Allmand assisted Brehmer in developing an organizational chart with better defined responsibilities for the leadership team. Key operational employees were also identified and promoted to new positions to improve and better document production and provisioning processes. New product lines were tagged as priority growth areas for the company and streamlined the sales, purchasing and accounting functions. Building lighting, production shelving and IT enhancements were identified and implemented. Strategies for future succession within the company were also discussed and documented.
