Meeting the needs of a thriving industry

As a founding industry of the north, manufacturing has deep roots in our cultural and economic history. In our early days, we worked with the famous Lancashire cotton mills, and we now have over 100 years of experience working with manufacturing companies. PM+M have seen the industry evolve and expand into new and exciting developments. We like to play our part by building expert knowledge in all fields of manufacturing so that we can give you the best business advice possible.

We’ve been involved in everything from high precision engineering, food production, packaging and textiles to aerospace - and your business will have its own unique needs. Using our knowledge of the manufacturing sector's many specialist fields, we can give you expert advice on industry growth strategies and wealth management, funding ideas and tax relief, corporate finance services and international expansion.

Tax relief

As an added bonus, our specialist tax team can advise you on the best tax deal to make the most of your earnings. We ensure that our manufacturing clients maximise tax relief and minimise tax liabilities, meaning that you can have more revenue spare to develop your business.

Going international

We are excited about our participation in Praxity, which means that PM+M can support you in manufacturing internationally. Through Praxity, independent firms with like-minded values can communicate globally, sharing expert knowledge and smoothing the transition into international exporting and manufacturing. We can give you some peace of mind and security when expanding overseas. As they say, the world is your oyster!


We can also work with you to define your business goals and develop growth strategies. Our focus on personal solutions means that we’ll advise you on the best way to create growth in your business. In fact, we’ve created a programme called FOCUS that allows us to help you work on your manufacturing business, putting time and effort into creating growth. Taking into account the financial market of the manufacturing sector, we can also advise you on the best ways to source and generate funding.

Finally, our wealth management team can help you hold on to that hard earned money and can give you advice on how best to safeguard and invest your wealth should you choose to sell or pass on your business.

Here to support you

As well as giving advice on business growth and management accounting procedures, we can help relieve you of the little tasks too. We can advise on business decision making, as well as technological support, accounting and administrative services. At PM+M, we have specialist advisers in all areas and are pleased to help you with any aspect of your manufacturing business.

We don’t charge for inquiries and are always happy to discuss your business plans. You can phone us for advice and to arrange an exploratory meeting at our Blackburn and Burnley offices.
