As overseas wages and transportation costs skyrocket, manufacturing is shifting back to the United States. Our seasoned engineers and appraisers are vitally aware of this trend and have decades of experience appraising facilities and equipment of some of the nation's largest manufacturers.
Today's manufacturing companies are increasingly looking for opportunities to match supply location with demand location. The 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan showed automakers and other manufacturers how global supply chains can be disrupted, leaving many companies without critical components. These types of disruptions contribute to a volatile market, making appraisal of manufacturing facilities and machinery highly complex.
Our engineers have years of experience working with Fortune 500 companies, appraising manufacturing properties for Caterpillar, Thermon, and Goodyear, in addition to recessionary reductions on companies like Georgia-Pacific, Louisiana Pacific, Pilgrims, and MeadWestvaco.
