Industrial Manufacturing

Build a Solid Foundation for a Successful Future

Making goods and successfully bringing them to market requires flexibility, agility, and a forward focus.

In an industry with the potential to be significantly impacted by labor and talent pipeline shortages, inventory management complications, and shifting economic and geopolitical issues, responding to challenges effectively and strategically is key to remaining competitive.

Streamline and Enhance Operations

Enhanced access to data has become a valuable business tool that can help solve key business challenges, like inventory management, pricing, and labor allocation. Developing solutions that allow you to leverage data in meaningful ways is key to weathering market changes and staying competitive.

Using data to operate in integrated, collaborative ways can boost operational efficiencies and reliability, streamline processes, and contribute to an agile infrastructure capable of responding to change quickly and effectively.

Address Geographic Impacts

Where your business operates and sources supplies is a significant business factor. Gaining insight into domestic and international tax and financial regulations can help your business stay ahead of tax compliance issues, avoid debilitating tax bills, and create optimal tax structures that keep your business future focused.

For companies exploring or pursuing onshore and nearshore operational moves as geopolitical climates shift and opportunities to leverage manufacturing-specific funding and tax incentives having insight into country-specific tax laws and real estate intricacies is key to informed decision-making and strategic planning. 

Stay up-to-date with local, state and global tax forms, deadlines, and filing requirements that can overwhelm your business with our State & Local TaxInternational TaxTax Structuring Services, and more.

Prioritize Transition Planning

Whether you’re a business owner nearing retirement or simply ready to sell your company, stepping away from the entity you’ve built or devoted significant time to can be a complex process—one that should commence years ahead of the actual transition.

From identifying a buyer to preparing for the hand-off to determining your legacy plan, gaining a holistic view of the transition journey can align outcomes with your personal financial goals and give your next chapter a solid foundation.

Execute Deals Confidently

Business mergers, consolidations, and outright purchases are becoming a common in the manufacturing ecosystem, especially as private equity becomes a larger presence in the sector. Understanding how to make your company attractive to potential buyers is key to inviting opportunities and maximizing value.

Build a solid foundation for your transaction process with guidance customized to the specific risks, methods, and industry landscape of your event—proactively addressing tax compliance, accounting, recordkeeping, and other areas fraught with pitfalls that can completely derail the sale. Gaining a detailed overview of the process and learning how to approach a transaction—be it to a strategic buyer or a private equity company—can help keep you open to opportunities.

Protect Data and Assets

Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things, and the growing interconnectedness of the business landscape create cyberattack opportunities that cause costly damage to business’s operations, finances, and client relationships.

Proactively preparing for cyber-risks is far preferable to repairing the damage a breach can wreak. Test your current systems, or implement new ones, to help evaluate your safety levels and identify controls you need for further preventive measures.

Boost Cash Flow

Pursuing innovation, transforming your processes, or recovering from setbacks can come with considerable price tags. Fortunately, R&D and other tax credits and incentives, that reward research and development, automation, and clean energy initiatives, can help alleviate those costs.

Leveraging emerging tax credits and incentives, including those provided by the CHIPS Act and Inflation Reduction Act, can also offset operational costs and boost cash flow. Staying abreast of these opportunities and learning how to leverage them can open the door to more funding and a healthier bottom line.
