A Private Equity partner of Synergetics requested Due Diligence support on a motorcycle apparel company, with the purpose of using it as a platform for growth and with a focus on e-commerce. The initial hypothesis was to prove that margins could be enhanced by decreasing inventory levels with increased inventory turns, while concurrently lowering freight costs.

Through a collaborative Due Diligence effort, findings substantiated significant margin improvement opportunities and a solid foundation for growth. The Private Equity firm moved quickly to acquire this company, engaging Synergetics to coordinate all development efforts through a Project Management Office (PMO).

Key development objectives focused on an M&A plan to:

  • Develop and implement a store level stocking and replenishment model while rightsizing inventory
  • Define and implement a distribution footprint and inventory model targeted at eliminating several distribution centers
  • Optimize freight and inventory turns


Synergetics continued to support this company from an implementation standpoint, focusing on these key areas:

  • Developed and installed detailed warehouse layouts and processes to receive/put away/pick/pack/ship
  • Adjusted their warehouse management system for improved slotting and inventory turns
  • Installed bar code systems
  • Re-bid freight lanes for new volumes in-network
  • Closed two satellite warehouses
  • Developed store level merchandising models and coordinated replenishment tools
  • Developed and installed supply chain replenishment tools for improved inbound freight planning and in-stock performance
