About Majaco.

We’re a small team of specialist consultants who like to be hands-on, solve problems and increase profits.

Company background

Started in 2019 with one purpose - helping our clients to maximise their profits.

We love efficiency. We love to see complex systems working smoothly, intelligently and with maximum output. We’ve spent our careers delivering this for countless businesses in FMCG, Healthcare and e-Commerce. Majaco came to be when we asked ourselves one simple question: how can we make our partnerships, projects, and our own work even more efficient?

We agreed that the answer was: A small, nimble team of top experts. A team that can slot seamlessly into a business and get hands-on to solve problems. A team that can focus entirely on delivering sustainable uplifts in profit, while being high-energy and low maintenance.

That was in 2019. Since then, we’ve brought our vision to life, and we’ve been delivering profit-improving projects for some of the top businesses in our sectors. We’re loving every minute of it. And it was all made possible by Majaco.

We’re all naturally curious people who love to solve problems. Even when we’re not getting paid, this curiosity never goes away, nor does the belief that everything can be improved.

How we work

Our work is all about being output driven. This means we judge ourselves by the results we deliver. The fees we charge aren’t based on the number of days we work, or the hours we spend on site and in meetings – our fees are based on how much impact we have on your profitability.

Being laser focused on results means you’ll always find us where there are problems to be solved and improvements to be made. Underpinned by our values of clarity, partnership and creative curiosity, this is how an output driven ethos delivers results with staying power.
