Working across the industry to help clients reinvent and grow

How we help clients

Capital Equipment Manufacturers

Capital equipment companies provide the tools that power the semiconductors industry’s manufacturing branch. We help them define... the innovation roadmaps, product development processes, and sourcing and manufacturing excellence that keep them on the leading edge.

Electronic Design & Assembly

We serve companies across the electronic design, assembly, and test value chain—including original design manufacturers (ODMs),... electronic manufacturing services (EMS) players, component suppliers, and distributors. From unlocking growth through diversification to expanding and integrating the downstream value chain, we support clients on a range of strategic and operational topics.

Electronic Materials

Electronic materials are the lifeblood of the industrials & electronics value chain. We serve the suppliers of specialty electronic... materials—from chemicals, wafers, and other input materials to finished subassemblies such as substrates, LEDs, lithium-ion batteries, solar cells, and flat panel displays.


Fabless companies have a special set of challenges to address, beyond reference designs and relationships with foundries. We help... them develop efficient manufacturing strategies, sharp brand positioning, and targeted investment strategies.


Foundries provide the state-of-the-art manufacturing services that power a vast array of high tech devices. Our specialists combine... technical expertise drawn from working on fab floors with rigorous business training to help foundries improve productivity, reduce costs and decrease complexity.

Integrated Device Manufacturers (IDMs)

Integrated device manufacturers face challenges in R&D, budgeting, and product development. We help them reduce costs, run efficient... manufacturing plants, and develop sharp go-to-market strategies.
