Specialty Service Providers

Specialty Service Provider Members offer unique and specific expertise to help benefit manufacturers’ businesses.

Avison Young

Avison Young’s Denver team specializes exclusively in the brokerage of leased and owned manufacturing and distribution facilities, allowing us to become very familiar with the similar needs/requirements that most manufacturers share (heavy power, high clear heights, floor drains, dock-hi or drive-in loading, etc.). We increase cash flow by redesigning floor plans in a manner where production capacity and efficiencies are increased, while reducing the manufacturing footprint and monthly lease/mortgage payments. In the event of a relocation, we illustrate the commute times for all employees at their current office location. We then analyze how specific employees will be effected by a move to a new facility. The ability to actually visualize this data makes for a clearer picture, less turnover, and increased cash flow. Our strategic planning may also include sale/leasebacks to infuse capital back into the business, or renewal negotiations to create leverage and convince the landlord that a relocation is on the table. All go-forward plans are tailored to the specific goals and objectives of the individual manufacturers, and we’d love the opportunity to learn more about the challenges and opportunities you are facing.

Our expertise is in 6 core areas; strategy, structure, people systems, methods and tools (such as Lean, Six Sigma, ISO), lateral processes, and metrics. We partner with companies to conduct a self-assessment against the 6 areas, which will help focus improvement efforts. This system and method is great for companies interested in selling their business at an optimal price. This process enables the owners to get a premium for their life’s investment.
