Manufacturing and Procurement Services

Manufacturing accounts for 12.5 percent of USA GDP, but is now facing its largest decline since World War II. Global competition, complex company structures, and emerging markets are challenging current business capabilities.

As a result, manufacturing operations, whether underperforming or healthy , are filled with a greater sense of urgency to deliver near-term results and create sustainable growth. To successfully compete, manufacturing companies must create more effective sales and marketing strategies, develop efficient production and support processes, streamline overall costs, and manage working capital tightly to meet top-line and bottom-line expectations.

Or advisors have successfully managed and partnered with leading manufacturing companies to improve operational and financial performance and resolve issues related to capital structures. We are a multi-disciplinary professional services firm with an international global presence. Socius Business Advisors professionals not only make recommendations to enhance profit margins, but design and provide hands-on implementation of plans to improve the understanding throughout an organization to drive and achieve real results.
