Wholesale trade firms are essential to the economy as they can sell any and every type of good. Their customer might buy goods for use in making other products, such as a manufacturer purchasing material and supplies to make a washer or dryer. Customers may also be of the type buying goods they use in the course of daily operations, as when a company buys items like paper clips and office furniture. Wholesalers might only offer a few items for sale, perhaps made by one manufacturer, or they may offer thousands of items produced by hundreds of manufacturers. In all cases, however, a wholesale trade company acts as an intermediary between the manufacturer and the final customer. We specialize in enhancing wholesaler’s revenues, analyzing gross margins, maximizing cost savings, and customizing inventory control systems. Together with strategic business planning, incorporating business valuations and succession planning, we will play a significant role in improving your competitive position.
