Edica-Garnett Partners was established in 2007 via the merger of Garnett Consulting and Edica LLC.
Consulting was founded in 1996 by a former Arthur D. Little Director
and later came under the leadership of another Arthur D. Little
Principal, David Hurwitz. From its inception it was dedicated to provide
personalized management consulting services and decision making support
for clients in the petrochemicals, plastics, specialty and fine
chemicals, life sciences, advanced materials, food ingredients and
Edica LLC, formed in 2001 by Marc E. Kalton, an Arthur D. Little Market Director for Asia-Pacific,
focused on chemicals, polymers & materials and energy globalization
strategies. However, as a result of Mr. Kalton's extensive Asia-Pacific
experience and regional partner network, the practice quickly extented
to industrial, automotive and consumer products manufacturing, as well
as business and market development in China and India: setting-up
factories in Asia-Pacific, retail chains in India and the outsourcing of
manufactured goods and services from these same locations.
Edica-Garnett Partners focuses on strategy and implementation, market
entry and growth in rapidly developing economies, M&A support,
innovation, performance improvement and executive decision making.
