The customer is an engineering company, that is planning engineering and constructing ammunition deconstruction plants (chemical and conventional).

Internal departments will be reorganised. The reorganisation will include the creation of a BU corporate centre which will include most central/ overhead activities (sales engineering, aftersales, finance & admin, R&D). Business development and most key sales activities will be managed on Group level and not within the business unit. Additionally the implementation of a new ERP-system is required.
