About Alliance Cost Containment

Founded in 1992, Alliance Cost Containment is a widely recognized indirect expense reduction consulting firm. They assist corporations and private equity-backed companies with profit improvement by lowering indirect procurement costs. Their USA-based team leverages market knowledge, technology, national agreements and subject matter experts to reduce common operating expenses. In addition to reducing non-core costs, ACC's approach also instills institutional behavioral changes and adherence to best practices.

ACC has worked with hundreds of clients across many verticals, including manufacturing, logistics, distribution, industrial services, health care services, quick service restaurant chains and fitness centers. ACC bridges the gap between companies and vendors to become an active extension of their procurement teams. The result is fully implemented, meaningful savings that hit the bottom line.

ACC is an expert in the private equity industry, helping PE firms realize higher multiples for their portfolio company valuations. For private equity firms and their investments, ACC assists by increasing exit value and EBITDA for each portfolio company. Importantly, the process also implements systemic process improvements and shows full transparency of the value generated by indirect procurement optimization. Whether PE firms are seeking a synergistic buy or planning their exit strategy, ACC helps make informed decisions.

Alliance Cost Containment also has a group purchasing arm, which allows fragmented industry groups — both PE owned, and franchisee owned — to form custom group savings organizations for individual private locations, entities and employees.

Ethics and transparency are at the heart of all ACC operations.

The company has recently received many honors including Business of the Year from Louisville Business First, the GLI Inc.Credible Award, Most Admired CEO, Best Places to Work Award, the Inc.5000 Fastest Growing Business award and more. Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, ACC has satellite offices across the USA.
