Case Study - Present Equipment Manufacturer

A couple years ago, a Swiss based, but worldwide present equipment manufacturer acquired a family-owned manufacturer with a complementing product range in Italy. The new owner held the acquisition as a financial asset as long as the financial targets were achieved, and did not replace the Italian family management in order to proceed with continuity.
When the Italian manufacturer could not recover the market which it had lost during the EURO crisis, the Owner Company decided to assign GroNova with a special fact-finding mission. It became obvious that the Italian company could not survive on a stand-alone base and had to be integrated into the worldwide group. For this purpose, they asked for an Italian native executive for the transition period, in order to replace all family members in the Italian subsidiary as well as to implement and comply with the corporate standards and directives. In addition, this WIL executive had to represent the company at court.
