Special vehicle manufacturing

Kloepfel Consulting GmbH / Sectors / Special vehicle manufacturing

Sector: Special vehicle manufacturing

Like for automobile manufacturers, requirements have also increased considerably in the case of small capacities and quantities. Specific customer solutions are often at odds with available standard solutions. This makes long-term consultation between technology, sales and production departments necessary. In turn, the company that best manages the competition is the company that has the best handle on efficiency, flexibility, costs and deadlines. Many of the main components are from major suppliers (electrics, hydraulics, basic chassis). Our special vehicles team will work with you as part of a Kloepfel project to uncover hidden potential for return, helping you to use materials more efficiently, standardise products, even in small series, find innovative suppliers, for example for lightweight construction, and carry out workshops with existing suppliers to identify savings potential that can be realised together, among other measures.
