Twenty-two percent of of all manufacturing companies are employee-owned

For many manufacturing companies transitioning to an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) or other employee ownership model has been a way forward in weathering the challenging fluctuations in the industry.  

Business owners may face a challenge as they approach retirement

As you explore your succession options, it’s important to examine all of your choices. While selling your business on the market might seem like the best choice, did you know that the vast majority of businesses put on the market don’t sell?

Rather than run the risk of closing down, consider selling your business to the people who know it best—your employees.
