The “Made in USA” badge is one of the most effective points of value for manufactured goods in the USA and this “country of origin” designation has become a matter of national pride. General manufacturing facilities include properties such as auto manufacturers, machinery production plants, and almost any other facility that produces product. To generate a manufacturing plant valuation, the facilities must take into account a variety of factors including existing and new technologies.

evcValuation practices “black box valuation” as its base appraisal strategy, which requires expertise and due diligence, along with a broad range of knowledge across multiple factors. Consider a black box and the facility being appraised, where any manufacturing facility has a raw material coming in (what the manufacturer uses to produce their product) and a finished product going out (what the manufacturer sells). The operating cost to produce their product—including the cost of the raw material—is taken into account and in turn, the manufacturer receives revenue for the product it sells.

evcValuation has developed a depth of knowledge related to manufacturing plant valuation to take into account the following pressures:

  • Finished Product Markets
  • Raw Material Markets
