"Specialist industry knowledge is the key to recovering value in the manufacturing sector."

It is not easy to operate in the manufacturing sector. Barriers to entry are high, with expensive machinery and tooling, and a high level of education and experience often needed for success. Profit margins are also often low with pricing pressure and the constant concern that one’s product/s might become redundant if technology changes. With the risks involved, it’s good to be able to call on experienced people for help at critical times in a company’s life cycle.

At McDonald Vague we have team members who are not only skilled at turnaround and insolvency issues, but also have practical experience either as owner operators, or working in and with manufacturing firms on assignments involving high tech industrial production, cabinetry, printing, wine making, electronics, clothing and jewellery.

Having someone with first-hand experience, who understands the complex issues faced and how to achieve the best outcome is a huge advantage. If you would like a no obligation discussion to help you decide on your next move, please don’t hesitate to call us.
