  Article Summary  
Cost-effectively and efficiently managing large capital expenditures (CAPEX) financing is one of many critical challenges faced by manufacturers.

Add in high operational and labor costs, and manufacturers – more than many other industry segments – must be able to determine return on their highly-leveraged fixed cost components, as well as to secure correct financing at the lowest cost.

If manufacturing challenges like these are not continuously and successfully managed, risks can arise around accurately determining CAPEX payback or capacity not meeting demand.

An on-demand CFO services partner leverages both client-side and services-side manufacturing experiences to create a financial model to forecast a CAPEX investment’s cash flow, as well as to negotiate beneficial rates and terms in a financing contract.
