“We cut our corrugated costs very significantly and so far are extremely pleased with the quality of our new supplier’s product and the service provided….I strongly recommend that you consider engaging Strategic Advantage. For most small company CEOs, the day is filled to overflowing with operational details, which sometimes leaves less than the desired time to improve our companies. Strategic Advantage gave me a platform for improving our cost structure painlessly and professionally.”

Hospitality Mints, LLC, Boone, NC

Halex Corporation, Pomona, CA
“Throughout the process, communication with NPC senior management was timely and complete, and the findings were communicated to NPC in a very clear and detailed manner. The result of Strategic Advantage’s work was a cost reduction of over 15% on NPC’s annual corrugated spend of $350,000.”
Stan B., Vice President of Manufacturing,
NPC, Inc., Milford, NH
“From start to finish, the Strategic Advantage team was professional, detail-oriented and thorough. Their extensive knowledge of the industry was invaluable throughout the entire cost analysis and bid process. We project a significant savings on our corrugated costs, thanks to the efforts of Strategic Advantage.”
Jonathan F., President/CEO,
Potpourri Group, Inc., Chelmsford, MA
“It was refreshing to initiate this process with such professionalism. Many of these bid processes are just a quoting match rather than a genuine search for true value in a supplier. We appreciate those customers and prospects who are truly interested in a long-term partnership.”
