Strategy Analysis
Hallenstein Glasson Holdings´ (HLG) current strategy is to maintain market share, reduce costs right through the business and strive to strengthen the balance sheet. Inventory management will also play a critical role within the business, with the company paying close attention to acceptable levels. Another area for future focus will be the supply chain. Management has identified this as an area for improvement and feel they can be more efficient at supplying their outlets. The development of Glassons in Australia remains HLG´s longer-term strategy.
