Providing services to clients in the manufacturing sector is a key activity for Kreston firms. Manufacturing is a global activity with many businesses taking advantage of the cost advantages in the emerging economies in China, India, Brazil and Central and Eastern Europe.; Kreston has increased its membership across these regions so it can provide the full range of services manufacturers need to operate in local and international markets.
Kreston firms advise small, medium and multi-national manufacturers on company formation; funding for growth; capital investment in equipment; entry into new markets; mergers and acquisitions; investment decisions; budgeting and forecasting, international tax, employment as well as undertaking audit and assurance engagements.
Kreston has the experience to help you manage the risks faced when operating internationally.
One such international client Kreston has assisted over a number of years is SchÖlly Fiberoptic GMBH.
Since its establishment in 1973, Schölly has evolved from a single-product manufacturer to a vendor of highly sophisticated visualization systems for both medical and industrial applications. Today more than 500 employees work in 11 locations in 8 countries for the Schölly group. All products made by Schölly are targeted at making concealed structures visible and accessible for non-destructive/minimal invasive treatment, using technologies such as micro-optics, fiberoptics and electronics.
Mirko Beiser, Chief Financial Officer of Schölly Fiberoptic GmbH said
"Schölly is headquartered in Germany with subsidiaries operating in Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Hong Kong, India and Malaysia. We engaged Kreston to prepare our consolidated financial statements and the work is excellently co-ordinated. We have total confidence in the Kreston partners and the quality and reliability of their work. Our international subsidiaries enjoy the benefit of partners’ local knowledge which delivers outstanding cohesion to the overall project”.
