GS-Hydro is a global leader in non-welded piping systems and hose management solutions for various industry applications were cleanliness, reliability and easy installation are valued.
When Seaton Partners and GS Hydro met, the internal project team had already rolled out four companies in the group. The project team, based out of Finland, needed some UK centric support and detailed local finance knowledge. Due to shifting business priorities, the extended global rollout of the solution had stalled, but after successful small projects in the UK, the Finland project team asked Seaton Partners to plan additional expansion rollouts to Austria, Germany and South Korea.
Seaton Partners put together a dedicated project team for the task. The challenges for the team were not just functional, but also logistical. A balance was found between the UK team who travelled extensively to ensure core project knowledge was maintained, and expert local resource to bring language, culture and local finance domain knowledge to bear.
