Manufacturing & Distribution

At Sisterson, we proudly serve manufacturing and distribution companies in a wide range of sizes and across numerous industry sectors. The members of our Manufacturing/Distribution Team make it a point to be aware of trends and issues affecting our clients.

We provide audit, tax and consulting services to companies with continuous process manufacturing, job cost production, and contract manufacturing, including finished metals and industrial steel fabrication, housewares, industrial combustion systems, precision engineering, scrap metal, and ceramics, among others. Sisterson also serves commercial and industrial distributors in sectors such as food and beverage, medical device and pharmaceuticals, energy, and fluid power.

Our services include financial audits, tax compliance, collateral reviews, compilations, reviews, forecasts and projections, and business advisory services relative to business process re-engineering, cost accounting, working capital management, business valuation, financial modeling/corporate finance, information technology, and mergers and acquisitions. We also provide tax expertise in areas such as uniform capitalization rules, AMT planning, inventory methods, research and development credits, and numerous other complex tax areas.

Many of our manufacturing and distribution clients are privately-owned, middle market concerns which require investor/shareholder planning and smart professional advice. We work closely with family owners and financial investors to provide not only expert technical service, but to also understand the needs of owners and contribute to increased value from their investments.
