Rovetex main activities are:
Alexander Sacha Hagin founded and started up Rovetex (division of Softex Ltd.) in 1978.
A team of Consultant engineers provides both Long-Term and Short-Term Strategic and Tactical plans based on identified strengths and weaknesses in the Production, Marketing and Financial areas and includes recommended correction or improvement techniques where applicable.
A senior Consultant identifies the strengths and weaknesses of the operating departments in terms of their organization, machines and methods, management control systems, labour and machinery productivities, maintenance methods, training methods, costing and cost control methods, production planning systems, inventory control systems etc. Corrective action is outlined where necessary, and potential savings in costs are quantified.
Once problem areas have been identified (as a result of either a detailed discussion, or a Preliminary Survey, or a full-scale Corporate or Operations Audit), a Rovetex engineer, supported as necessary by a senior Consultant, plans and implements the required corrective action so as to achieve the targeted cost-reductions, or quality improvements, or systems improvements.
When investment in a completely new factory or in an extension to an existing factory is contemplated, or when an investment in new machines to replace old ones is under consideration, Rovetex provides a full feasibility study based on expected product mixes, sales prices, input costs etc. The study includes machine specifications and layout plans and building and services requirements. Rovetex also controls the subsequent erection and start-up phases. The full use of Rovetex's unique skills can result in a considerable reduction in total investment for such projects.
In certain cases it may be necessary for our Marketing Section to carry out field investigations on behalf of either a new or an existing product. Usually we find that such projects must be coupled with analysis of present or modified production methods at the plant itself, and therefore these twin tasks are developed concurrently.
Management Training may be provided for the Client in one of two ways.
Rovetex can either design and implement an In-Company Training Course at any desired Management level, or informal Management Training may be carried out as part of any normal consultancy project.
Our unique textile skills and experiences around the world enable us to assist a Company in Senior Staff Selection. Rovetex will normally carry out the initial advertisement and screening, before presenting a short list to the Company, after which advice will be given as regards final selection, if required.
