We have acquired the operational excellence experts Suiko in a move that paves the way for it to extend the benefits of lean thinking to companies in the construction sector.

  • Turner & Townsend has acquired the UK-based operational excellence consultancy Suiko
  • Suiko is a pioneer in lean management and has helped an impressive range of global retail, manufacturing and construction companies to cut waste and boost efficiency
  • The integration of Suiko’s cross-industry experts into Turner & Townsend will position the company as the first independent construction consultancy to offer lean expertise at all stages of capital project delivery and operations

The acquisition will broaden our world-class programme management expertise, and help its clients to embed lean thinking in both the delivery of their capital projects and their ongoing operations.

For nearly two decades, the Bath-based Suiko has been at the forefront of applying lean management techniques across a range of industries. Founded in 1997, the company takes its name from a Japanese word for ‘performance’ and specialises in fostering operational excellence by helping its clients to increase performance and profitability.
