Manufacturing & Distribution
Our clients in the manufacturing and distribution sector represent a wide array of endeavors ranging from distributors of beverage, floor covering and lumber to manufacturers of footwear, eyewear and apparel.
We understand the challenges facing manufacturing and distribution clients today: downsized workforce, maintenance of high standards of quality control, and increased cost of doing business. Over the decades, we have helped these clients not only survive but thrive … often going beyond the role of CPA to become an integral part of the company’s management team. We work hand-in-hand to assist with day-to-day operations and forward-thinking decisions such as incentive compensation plans, internal operating and financial controls, and succession planning.
We have supported our clients’ successful initiatives to expand both nationally and internationally and, when necessary, to relocate manufacturing facilities to more cost-effective settings in concert with both the personal values of leadership and the needs for product manufacturing. In one instance, we advised a client that grew via a series of acquisitions from one location in one state to doing business in over 13 states. Our team paid careful attention to due diligence, negotiation of purchase prices, and asset allocation and tax ramifications.
