Manufacturing and Distribution

From car bodies to appliances, from circuit boards to surgical tools, the manufacturers and distributors of Michiana are making big things happen. What’s most impressive is that the majority are privately held, family-owned. They are entrepreneurs with a dream to make a better life for their loved ones, employees, and communities.

As the largest locally-owned CPA firm in northern Indiana, this really strikes a chord for us. Some of our first clients back in 1956 were manufacturing and distribution companies – personal friends and acquaintances. Over 65 years later, we are proud to say that many of those relationships have stood the test of time, still running successful operations today.

Pulling a page from your own playbook, we take an entrepreneurial approach to deliver tax, business consulting, and assurance services. Thinking outside the box on tax strategies, inventory control, operational reviews, succession planning, and more will help meet your evolving needs and provide peace of mind for a confident future.
