Manufacturing & Processing

Manufacturing and processing facilities are at the heart of The Austin Company’s and Austin Consulting’s core business. From metal-working manufacturing plants to bakeries and consumer products facilities, Austin Consulting’s site location consultants are experienced in evaluating the most cost-effective and efficient solution for your facility needs.

While each facility is unique, we understand that certain trends and variables, such as workforce availability and training, utilities, supply chain networks and community readiness, among others, each distinctively impact the project. We work with you to minimize your risk and cost by identifying the best location strategy and to maximize your return on investment and long-term success.

Every aspect of our services for manufacturing and processing companies is strategically developed to reduce operating cost, enhance flexibility and deliver an economical, sustainable and environmentally-responsible solution. Austin has extensive experience providing services for greenfield sites as well as existing facilities, so you experience as little down time and lost production during facility relocation, expansion or construction, as possible.
