Manufacturing & Distribution

Overview


During the last several decades, the dynamics of the domestic manufacturing and distribution (M&D) market have shifted dramatically. The trend toward offshore manufacturing requires M&D companies to be more nimble in order to remain competitive. Grassi & Co. has served as a trusted advisor to many M&D companies across the New York Metro area and throughout the United States—including companies in New York City, Long Island, Rockland and Westchester counties, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut—as well as internationally through Moore Stephens. We assist clients by helping them take advantage of favorable tax laws that enable them to keep more of their profits and invest in their futures.
 
As members of the Manufacturing Services Association (MSA), a nationwide affiliation of independently owned accounting firms, we are committed to delivering exceptional financial and consulting services to manufacturing companies. The Grassi & Co. M&D Industry Practice looks beyond the numbers to unlock hidden value, whether in monetary savings or operational efficiencies, and our M&D clients benefit from these financial management and operational improvement strategies. In all cases, the results flow straight to clients' bottom lines. Grassi & Co. is well-equipped to service various types of M&D companies, including, but not limited to:
 
  • Food & Beverage
  • Building materials
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Technology
  • Aerospace & Defense
  • Apparel and Consumer Goods
     
Grassi & Co.'s M&D Practice also has the capabilities and experience to work with clients on maximizing the effectiveness of their business processes. Our services aim to help you reduce operating costs and maximize return on investments. By incorporating Lean Principles as well as the Six Sigma Methodology, we have the capabilities to assist clients in developing a target operating model and overall process efficiencies.
 
Grassi & Co. actively participates in industry associations. Our partners and managers are on the forefront of thought leadership through participation in industry research initiatives and organizations, such as:
