Manufacturing & Distribution

Helping Manufacturers See the Whole Picture

Manufacturing in the U.S. continues to rise. The good news is that production is increasing and sales departments are receiving more purchase orders. Challenges present themselves daily though. Controlling costs, hiring and retaining employees, more regulation and a mountain of new technology are just a few issues manufacturers have to deal with on a regular basis. While some manufactures operate solely in the U.S., others have or are looking to move production to facilities outside the U.S. That means manufacturers and distributors have to understand how to conduct international business, compete with global competition or both.
