Future growth begins with the right advisor.

You’re probably no stranger to the pressures of market fluctuations, international expansion, regulatory compliance, or the risk of supply interruptions. And if you’re not facing these challenges today, you will in the future. We know because we understand your industry, your operational environment, and most importantly, what your metals business needs to prosper.

Our audit, tax, consulting, and M&A advisory professionals serve more than 300 metals clients operating in the United States and internationally. These companies span the distribution chain, from primary metal producers to fabricators across end-user market sectors, such as automotive, construction, machinery and equipment, and medical. Additionally, we’re leaders in helping middle-market metals manufacturers select and implement ERP systems.

Our data-driven metals expertise is recognized across the marketplace. For example, we partnered with the Precision Metalforming Association to launch Dynamic Data. This cloud-based tool, available to Precision Metalforming Association members creates customized data reports on demand, using real-time industry data. A Dynamic Data report analyzes key performance indicators and — even more valuable — compares your company data against industry peers. Key data points include executive compensation, wage and benefits, benchmarking, financial analysis, safety, and sales and marketing. This is just one way in which we’ll provide deeper insights to empower your decision-making and long-term success.

Our clients say

Plante Moran has been invaluable in establishing our operation in China. They guided us through the labyrinth of rules and registrations that were required to start up our operations. In addition, they provided accounting and administrative services that allowed us to leverage our employees. This allowed us to focus on our customers, and we were able to become profitable in our first year of operations, and put us on track to double our sales in the second year.
