Smart industrial groups achieve superior margins. They are ‘smart’ because they invest in sustainable technical competencies and information flows.
Typically they achieve one or more of the following:
- Hold commercially relevant IP, regulatory, or specification approvals that protect their position
- Operate to a high degree of integrity in highly critical environments
- Take a lead in Industry 4.0: e.g. adding data to the componentry, participating or enabling Industrial Automation
- Dominate an attractive niche
These are the industrial outperformers that AMR works with.
