Manufacturing and Distribution businesses have faced increasing competition from globalization and rapid technological advancement for many years, and the business models in these sectors have shifted accordingly. Manufacturers today utilize a blend of on- and off-shore resources and in many cases focus on final assembly and test; and Distributors are continually challenged to expand the scope of their value-added services to remain entrenched with their customers. Scalability and specialization have become increasingly important in improving efficiency and profitability, fueling interest in acquisition activity. Larger companies are constantly on the hunt for new products, access to new customers, and innovative production capabilities to acquire—driving a competitive, but well defined, M&A landscape for Manufacturing & Distribution businesses.     

Dunn Rush & Co. has completed numerous transactions for middle market businesses in Manufacturing & Distribution across a wide range of industries. We speak the language, know the playing field, and understand the most compelling areas of savings and synergies that create value for potential buyers – the critical skills necessary to most effectively market your company and maximize value through a competitive sale process.  

What sets Dunn Rush & Co. apart is that our partners and managing directors have been in our clients’ shoes—as CEOs of Manufacturing and Distribution businesses that have gone through acquisitions and sale transactions of their own. Our firsthand experience managing the M&A process as both owners and advisors has proven to be an invaluable asset to our clients.
