Manufacturing is experiencing a major shift as brands and retailers begin to vertically integrate, international players diversify geographically, and strategic players expand by acquiring talent, advanced machinery, and new processes.
The rekindling of M&A activity in the manufacturing sector during recent years has presented sellers with an attractive opportunity to monetize their biggest asset in a seller’s market. Once the foundation of the U.S. economy, the manufacturing industry continues to progress. Having reached new heights of operational efficiency and excellence, it is a model worthy of worldwide emulation. At Morgan & Westfield, our deal teams have the international and domestic reach to find attractive buyers across the globe.
While many businesses in this field are in their mature phase, this can vary between industries. For instance, many medical device manufacturers may be in the growth phase; however, most engine manufacturers are in the mature phase. Overall, the manufacturing industry also must deal with moderate to heavy regulation. Despite the wide variety of companies that make up the manufacturing sector, all are affected by the same general factors, such as the demand for sector outputs on the global market and those that influence the price of major inputs. Specifically, key drivers for the manufacturing sector include the GDP, the strength of the dollar, and manufacturing capacity utilization, as well as the price of key commodities such as steel, oil, and plastic.

The manufacturing industry includes companies that are upstream from supply chains, turning raw materials into new products through chemical, mechanical, or physical processes. This sector comprises companies that supply intermediate goods and components, as well as finished goods to retailers, wholesalers, and other manufacturing businesses.
An ever-changing business landscape combined with globalization has created new challenges in the manufacturing industry, as well as new and exciting opportunities. Our team members have decades of experience in the manufacturing industry, so they understand and can overcome the challenges involved when selling a manufacturing company.
