Considerations When Evaluating a Manufacturing Company

  • Does it have a viable product?
  • Does the product offer a competitive advantage?
  • Is it in a growing market?
  • Does it have a professional management team in place?
  • Does it have an experienced and reliable technical workforce?
  • Is the process well-documented?
  • Are current customers satisfied with the price/performance?
  • Is their an associated parts business?

If the answer to all 8 questions is “yes”, my clients can focus their purchase decision based on finances – not technology. However, one or two “no” answers doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a bad proposition. Many companies are missing a key ingredient that prevents them from being successful. If they can be purchased at a discount, the cost of the business and investing in the change is usually much less than the real value of the company.
