Manufacturing and Distribution

Elliott Davis traces its roots to 1920 when the firm began serving textile manufacturers in the upstate of South Carolina. While there have been significant changes in the manufacturing and distribution sector in the nearly 100 years since the company’s founding, one thing remains the same: our unwavering commitment to providing the highest possible client service.

Today, Elliott Davis offers specialized services for M&D firms in a variety of industries, including automotive, aviation, distribution, plastics, transportation, and a variety of others. Solutions range from assistance with assurance or taxation matters to services for cybersecurity or internal control needs. Meanwhile, our client base varies in size from pre-revenue-stage, local, privately held companies to global public companies with a multinational presence.

Taken as a whole, this diversity of experience equips our team with a skill set uniquely suited to tackle the disruptions that continually reshape the manufacturing and distribution industry. These transformations are driven by trade changes, worldwide market exposure, and other hard trends, including robotic technology, artificial intelligence, an aging workforce, and global competition. Elliott Davis understands these challenges and has the knowledge to address these issues with custom solutions that help manufacturing and distribution firms operate more efficiently, profitably, and ultimately, successfully.
