BP’s Distribution and Manufacturing Group Launches 3rd Annual BP Pulse

|

In February, the Distribution and Manufacturing Practice group published its 3rd Annual BP Pulse. This publication has become a valued resource for companies within the Pacific Northwest to obtain timely and accurate information on closely held, mid-market businesses within the Puget Sound region. We’re heading into 2019 with some incredible insights into what manufacturing and distribution companies are facing this year.

In this year’s BP Pulse, we tackle some of the current hot topics – tax reform and tariffs – the responses from participants, as well as the expert commentary in both of these arenas, are very interesting. In the survey we covered workforce trends, revenue growth, technology and more.  A key takeaway: most companies we surveyed are forecasting growth, although the lack of skilled workers and concerns about labor costs continue to be pain points. What can be done about this trend? Check out expert commentary and access the full survey report here.

We invite you to visit our website to download the BP Pulse, to take the time to dive into this report, and meet our team of Berntson Porter professionals. We’ve also partnered with some of the best experts that we know to provide additional commentary in their areas of expertise. With this collaboration, we’re offering an in-depth look into these industries which mean so much to our local economy.
