Manufacturing Accountant helping Manufacturers

Manufacturing Accounting & Consulting Firm

International competition is increasing and can be downright overwhelming. At HW&Co., manufacturing accountants and consultants work with manufacturers and distributors that provide quality products to a variety of industries. Our industry leaders bring you closer to your goals while helping you excel at every step of your journey.

As a commitment to the industry we serve, we are members of Manufacturing CPAs, a nationwide network of CPA manufacturing firms, giving us access to educational programs and other support to help us stay informed of industry trends and better serve our clients and operate as a true manufacturing consulting firm.

We now have research showing how manufacturing has been affected by COVID-19, and what challenges lie ahead for one of the biggest industries in Ohio. The leaders of HW&Co.’s manufacturing group, along with Jacob Duritsky, Team NEO’s VP of Strategy & Research, and Michael Delis, Director of Customer Service and Supply Chain for Fastener Tool & Supply, present a discussion of manufacturing’s current state in Northeast Ohio. Take a look at the overview and watch the entire webinar.
