Waldemar A. Pförtsch.

Research output: Other contributionCase Studies


Techtronic Industries, Co. Ltd. (TTI) is a Hong Kong based company that sells power tools and small appliances. In 2007, TTI was listed in the UNCTAR Report as one of the emerging global companies in China. So far TTI had been an astonishing success story. It started out as a humble battery producer, moved into contract manufacturing, acquired brand assets of European and American companies, and wiped out the competition in its home territory by offering what the customer wanted with a quality and price that allowed profitable expansion and customer satisfaction. Now the challenge the company faced was to more rigorously exploit synergies and growth opportunities from the acquisitions and its scale of business. Could its leadership push their various product categories in markets where they were under represented? Could they reorganize the structures and resources around them so that newly created units became more efficient with their existing brand, products, and marketing investments?
