Asah uses a structured, gated process in managing innovation. This mitigates risk and maximises the possibility of success. The objective is to identify project flaws early and eliminate or resolve prior to significant investment. We develop the concept iteratively in order to implement once.
Developing a new manufacturing operation is a complex process, particularly when a new or emerging technology is a part of the process We understand the iterative nature of product and process innovation and can work with you from product concept, through validation, scale up and implementation Through our engineering, scientific and commercial network we can identify and assess the best approach to each unit operation in your process.
In addition to the typical legal and financial expertise required, completing an effective due diligence of a manufacturing operation requires specialised financial, operational, logistical and market expertise We can effectively carry out an in depth assessment of a manufacturing investment and provide guidance on the attractiveness of the operation as well as providing and assessment of the risks. The Asah Group also has a series of investor “First Cut” tools focused on providing time and cost effective screening of manufacturing investment opportunities.
THE KEY TO SUCCESSFUL DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW MANUFACTURING OPERATION IS ACCESS TO THE RIGHT TECHNOLOGY, THE RIGHT ENGINEERING, SCIENTIFIC DEVELOPMENT, AND COMMERCIAL RESOURCES, EXPERTISE AND CAPITAL. ASAH CAN GUIDE YOU THROUGH THIS JOURNEY.

There are always many competing projects for investment of time, resources, and capital. We can assist in developing a clear strategy to ensure that manufacturing investments deliver the best possible return.
TO CREATE AN ENDURING COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE THERE MUST BE A TECHNICAL AND OPERATIONAL ADVANTAGE. IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW GOOD THE BRAND IS, IF THE PRODUCT IS NOT ON THE SHELF BECAUSE YOU CAN’T DELIVER, THE CONSUMER WON’T BUY. IF IT IS ON THE SHELF BUT NO GOOD, THEY WON’T BUY IT AGAIN.
Manufacturing businesses can often turn from being extremely profitable to being extremely unprofitable in a short period of time The businesses are complex and the difference between profitability and loss making is often the result of multiple aspects We can assess your individual situation and make tailored recommendations as well as helping in turning your operation around.
