Speaker: Sarah Miles (was KTP Associate, now employed by JS Humidifiers and Dr Tammi Sinha (KB Supervisor, University of Portsmouth Business School).
Project Summary: The original project aim was to develop and implement a framework/methodology (using activity based costing and process improvement) to improve the profitability of current and future business activities/opportunities of J S Humidifiers. During the project J S Humidifiers have seen sales rise 20% with no change in staff levels. Profit has almost doubled due to the efficiency methods put in place. Overall JS Humidifiers are now better set up for potential challenges than when the project began and have identified areas for growth with energy saving products despite the economic conditions.

The company designs bespoke humidifer solutions as well as off the shelf units along with servicing and spares.
