If you’re ready to sell your manufacturing business, there are a variety of complex factors to consider.
Keystone Business Advisors handles everything that a manufacturing business broker or M&A advisor offers, but we go one step beyond to ensure that your business is sold in an efficient and streamlined manner and for top dollar.
Globalization and an ever-changing business landscape have led to new challenges in the manufacturing industry, and of course, a new diverse world of opportunity.
Our team members have decades of experience working in the manufacturing industry. Our business know-how helps us understand and overcome the challenges involved when you are looking to sell a manufacturing company in Southern California.
Overcoming Manufacturing Industry Challenges
Our years of experience help us understand the nuances of the industry and the issues that buyers are considering. Topping the list of challenges in manufacturing is the lack of capable and skilled workers. While there is a great deal of discussion of the role of automation and robotics in manufacturing, and no doubt advancements are being made, the simple fact is that for the foreseeable future, skilled workers are needed to keep the wheels of manufacturing moving.
If you are wondering, “How can I sell my manufacturing business?” you’ll want to consider the buyer’s perspective. Your prospective buyer will want to be assured that they will have ample knowledgeable management and employees after they purchase the company. They will want to see that a solid operational infrastructure is in place.
A second factor that buyers will take into consideration is the increase in California’s minimum wage. The simple fact is that higher wages will result in higher costs of goods across the board. Understanding how to best address the challenges of increased minimum wages, and the accompanying ramifications, is essential for success in the manufacturing sector.
Whether it is higher tariffs or trade restrictions due to political considerations, trade uncertainties can also introduce unique, and often unexpected, curveballs into the sales process. That’s why Keystone Business Advisors leverages our decades of experience in the manufacturing industry to provide our clients with the kind of information and expertise they need to achieve consistently optimal results.

How to Sell a Manufacturing Company
With our focus on the sector of the M&A market that is frequently underserved, companies with annual sales between $2 million and $100 million, Keystone Business Advisors is uniquely positioned for the manufacturing sector.
When we help you sell your manufacturing business, you’ll experience the Keystone Business Advisors difference throughout our relationship. First of all, we take a collaborative approach. We leverage the resources from our team to best suit our clients’ needs. This means that we will work with your advisors, but we’ll also recommend top level professionals when needed.
We proactively identify who we believe are the right buyers for your manufacturing business. Once a prospective client has committed, stating “Sell my Manufacturing company,” we begin creating a 20-60-page Confidential Information Memorandum to sell your manufacturing business.
Whereas a typical manufacturing business broker or M&A advisor might take dozens of projects at once and place them on the internet and see which one sells, each M&A Advisor at our firm only works on five or less projects at any given time. Our selectivity allows us to focus more on each client, as we build a comprehensive marketing program tailored to each individual manufacturing business.
