At Cordes & Company, our financial and management professionals provide prompt and expert support for businesses and real estate in transition, litigation and distress – as well as their local, regional and national lenders.
One of our primary areas of focus is manufacturing.
Modern manufacturing involves the use of machines, tools and labor to transform raw materials into finished goods, either for use in some additional process or for sale.
Manufacturing industry sectors include engineering, construction, electronics, chemical, energy, textiles, food and beverage, metalworking, plastics, transportation and telecommunications.
In addition to the actual manufacturing, this process involves the purchase of raw materials and the sale and delivery of the finished goods. It involves the purchase, maintenance and sale of necessary equipment and technology. Often, it includes a research and development component as well.
Assessing the financial and operational issues of manufacturers requires not only financial and business savvy, but also an understanding of complex manufacturing processes – from start to finish. It requires an understanding of the workforce.
When manufacturing operations experience transition, litigation and distress, value must be preserved. Often, this means maintenance of operations and workforce relationships until the situation can be resolved. With skillful Cordes & Company management, value is not only preserved – but enhanced.
