Manufacturing and Engineering

Understanding your needs.

Whatever your goals, aspirations or stage in the business lifecycle, we tailor our services and team to support your ambitions.

We already advise a broad range of clients within the manufacturing and engineering sector. Preparation is top of our agenda as we help our clients to plan, identify new opportunities and develop strategies for growth. Expanding can often mean diversification into new products or markets and this requires a considered, proactive approach to carefully assess the available opportunities and their relative benefits.

Why us?

We advise clients in the manufacturing and engineering sector across the North East and Yorkshire and have gained a wealth of experience over many years. We add value to our clients by understanding their needs and helping them achieve their business and financial goals.

Whatever stage your business is at, we can help. Whether you are looking for support on identifying growth opportunities or maximising tax benefits, finding the right funding or sourcing a grant to support growth, our team of experts can help you deliver your plan.

We are also part of the Kreston network which gives us access to a global network of independent accountancy and advisory firms. Our global network can be of huge value to our clients who can benefit from enhanced research coverage, local market knowledge and cross-border professional expertise. Through this network we can support your global expansion plans and help manage your overseas supply chain.
