Suiko stands for performance or polish/nurture in Japanese.
Suiko was founded in 1997 by Andy Marsh (having spent time as a Captain in the British Royal Engineers, in a management consultancy and then in Unilever) and acquired WCS International who were founded in 1996.
Suiko initially focused on Continuous Improvement in the production environment with an emphasis on people. WCS was a leading authority on TPM. We have now grown into a consulting firm which operates internationally with a mission to be respected as experts in Operational Excellence, who improve efficiency, sustain improvements and grow profits within our clients businesses.
We have a healthy respect for Japanese manufacturing methods and some of their attitudes and culture within operations – primarily that of Lean, teamwork, challenge, CI and ownership. Many of our consultants have worked for Japanese companies particularly in the automotive sector.
We are proud of our achievements and the recognition we have received. We were named Consultancy Practice of the Year in the NML (National Management & Leadership) Awards. More recently we were crowned winners of the Performance Improvement Project in the Private sector at the prestigious MCA awards.
