Services for Manufacturing & Distribution Companies

In order to maintain a competitive edge in the manufacturing industry, you must proactively manage global competition and rising costs. At the same time, you must sustain a constant focus on customer satisfaction. At Kernutt Stokes, we believe it takes more than ordinary solutions to succeed today, so you need more than an ordinary business consultant to help meet your complex needs. You require a business advisor with proven experience in assisting other manufacturers – someone who can give you ideas, not just information, and someone who knows both you and your industry. Most of all, you deserve to work with someone you can trust.

Kernutt Stokes is different from other firms in that we offer the capabilities and depth-of-service of a large firm, but the personal attention, responsiveness and affordability of a small firm. We have helped numerous manufacturing companies overcome unique financial and operational challenges. With the experience, knowledge and training of our professional team, your company will have access to the latest tools and advice.

In addition to traditional accounting, auditing and tax services, we work hard to learn about your specific business and strive to identify ideas that grow your bottom line.

Kernutt Stokes specializes in assurance, tax and consulting services for manufacturing companies. We can also help you find ways to reduce your tax burden – better positioning you to quickly respond to changes in the industry, fully utilize your resources, capitalize on opportunities and, ultimately, strengthen your business.
