SIB Fixed Cost Reduction

SIB is a cost reduction consulting firm with a proven track record of saving money for companies in a variety of industries. Through expert analysis, SIB will discover if businesses are overpaying on their monthly bills. SIB has a 98% success rate when it comes to finding savings for their clients. Once savings are found and implemented, SIB shares in those savings with the client. The result is a win-win situation – no budgeting is needed, there are no up-front costs, and a fee is only due if savings are found. In other words, an SIB review always pays for itself.

SBG was founded by two former Smithfield Foods Sourcing executives.   SBG has a unique position in the marketplace that allows for successful cost reduction regardless of the company’s size and position in their respective industry.
