Manufacturing

Northern Ireland has, for the most part, had a long and sustainable manufacturing history. This has been challenged in recent years, with many companies coming under extreme pressure due to rising costs and international competition.

 Northern Ireland’s challenging economy means that now, more than ever, manufacturing firms must aim to achieve maximum efficiency in their operations to ensure survival and competitiveness. BDO Northern Ireland assists clients with their own cost review and best practice advice which brings tangible bottom line benefits to  their own business and sector.

Through our international network of offices, in more than ninety countries, we have an established information network of local business experts from which we extract quick and accurate information which can be tailored to a specific country and its economy.
