Manufacturers know better than anyone that the only constant is change. To achieve sustainable growth you need to be continuously looking to new technologies and processes to maintain a lean operation, efficient supply chain and good internal controls. Although merger activity can dictate staff reductions, you still need to attract and retain the best and brightest people. Working with people who have answers and know the quickest path to solutions gives you a competitive advantage. Our manufacturing professionals offer a broad range of services, while focusing on your unique challenges and needs.
Aerospace and defence
Perhaps no other industry is as sensitive to economic and political forces as aerospace and defence. While commercial aerospace and defence companies face varying market conditions, now more than ever strong financial reporting and controls, cost reduction efforts, consistent program performance and continuous revenue generation are keys to success. At Deloitte, we leverage our extensive industry knowledge to help our clients address these issues as they deal with continued uncertainty in a dynamic market.
Deloitte provides a broad range of value-added services to many of the top aerospace and related companies around the globe. From control evaluation to merger integration, and from cost reduction to ERP and other systems integration, we bring a depth of proven experience to our clients.

Consolidation, globalisation, increased competition and severe economic and geopolitical pressures are having on impact on the industry.
