We do manufacturing companies. We also do shelves (warehousing and distribution). We can help organizations in multiple ways: to become more efficient – by improving operations and helping to grow business. We believe, however, that sustainable growth of any organization must be supported by healthy, effective operations.  This is particularly true in manufacturing, especially in B2B.   We specialize in continuous and batch process manufacturing, but have experience in mining and discrete process as well.


SPL stands for Smart Practical Logic. It is a combination of boutique management consultancy, an interim management outfit, and a research institution. We see ourselves as curious innovators, always striving first to understand before moving on in a smart, practical and logical way. 


SPL was established in 2000. We have helped many clients in many aspects of their businesses across numerous geographies and cultures on all continents. Over the years, we have evolved from numbers geeks to people developers and empowerers. 

But rather than bragging about our achievements, we look ahead. What counts in this fast-changing world is not the glamorous past but ingenuity, flexibility, and proactivity. 

Our solid experience from successes and failures (failures are stepping stones of success) is a cornerstone for future endeavors. 


We can support you as consultants, or take a management job for a period of time. We are interested in time or effect-based arrangements, not really in staying with your organization for ever.  We believe we should move on when the job is done, and your team is developed and competent to carry on.  We are here to help and guide you, but not to get you dependent on our continuous presence. 


We have done work for major multinational organizations on all continents. We have also been able to help smaller local businesses. In some instances, we have worked as subcontractors to major consultancies. We do not advertise names of our clients.  Upon request we may discuss selected case studies relevant to your situation.

Yes, we have had a number of successes. We will be happy to share our stories with you. But before we do so, we should align our definitions of the word “success”.  This can mean different things to different people. We love the definition by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

We believe that by helping to improve businesses, we contribute to making this world a better, more beautiful and healthier place so many can “breathe easier,” so organizations and their people  can be successful in the “Emerson way.”
