Market Entry and Channel Strategy Recommendations Yield 14x Sales Increase in Greater China

A $250 million machined aerospace structures company with seven global production facilities serving both military and commercial aerospace markets had made multiple acquisitions each year for several years and had significant discrepancies in operational performance from factory to factory (7 total).
