Delphi expands European efficiency drive with Incentive FM

29 February 2008

Incentive FM has added France, Germany, Spain and Hungary to its remit for Delphi, the global supplier of automotive component suppliers. Incentive has been undertaking a review of the FM structure at Delphi in Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, the UK, Turkey, Morocco and Portugal and has effected savings and efficiencies.

It has already produced benchmarking reports and cost reduction suggestions for Delphi’s automotive component manufacturing sites in Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, the UK, Turkey, Morocco and Portugal. The objective is to drive down costs whilst improving standards with particular emphasis on compliance, headcount and cost effective purchasing. Incentive FM has also just presented findings from Delphi’s five sites in Poland and highlighted the opportunities for restructuring and cost savings mainly in the contract services areas of their facilities spend. The focus has been in the areas of catering, mechanical and electrical maintenance, cleaning and associated disciplines.

Phase 2 of the work in Poland will involve a three month implementation programme which will see key personnel from Incentive FM working alongside Delphi’s local country managers to put in place a professional FM structure.

Jeremy Waud, Managing Director at Incentive FM, explains: “What is key is that even in a low wage economy, such as Poland, we are finding cost savings in excess of 20 per cent. This means that for Delphi, even taking into consideration that we are charging UK consultancy rates, there will be an ROI of between 300 and 600 per cent within 12 months for this project. It is clear that organisations operating in the industrial sector, either in the UK or internationally, can benefit from UK expertise in facilities management by working with a company such as Incentive FM irrespective of whether they want to contract out or just use our extensive knowledge.”
