“If you’re not growing, you’re dying” famous words that I’m sure everybody has heard before, and in many ways it’s true, but growth can also be harmful. Once your growth begins to exceed your ability to physically house the entire process, you’re left with only a few options: expand, move or outsource. The first two options are no doubt expensive and will more than likely require an infusion of capital to achieve, but outsourcing could save you money. If the physical footprint of an entire process is getting to large for your plant, consider outsourcing part of that process to another company freeing up space and preventing you from either not meeting order deadlines or expanding/moving to a new location.
