Transaction strengthens BearingPoint’s end-to-end service offering to retailers.

LCP Consulting, the leading international specialist consultancy in customer-driven supply chain management joins European management and technology consultancy BearingPoint. With this transaction, two highly profitable and award-winning companies have joined forces. LCP deepens BearingPoint’s operations service line and expands its capabilities in the retail, consumer goods, and manufacturing. In addition, LCP brings a suite of strategic supply chain management tools and fact-based methodologies to the BearingPoint portfolio.

BearingPoint is continuously adding capabilities and geographic coverage, and the acquisition of LCP is the latest in a series of acquisitions that BearingPoint started making three years ago. Previously acquired teams include manufacturing experts in Italy, a leading digital management consultancy in the Nordics, operational performance specialists in the UK and management and reporting specialists in Germany.

“Joining BearingPoint will enable LCP to accelerate our growth plans within a range of industry sectors both in the UK and internationally. We are keen to leverage BearingPoint’s wider capabilities, notably in digital, for the benefit of our existing client base. Becoming part of a leading international consulting organisation opens up new personal development and career opportunities for our people.”
