Frances Brunelle, President of Accelerated Manufacturing Brokers, recently authored an article published in Manufacturing Report discussing the unfilled manufacturing vacancy dilemma. With MFG Day this week, Brunelle noted more than 500,000 manufacturing jobs remain unfilled month over month, year over year. Over the next ten years, manufacturers will lack 2.4 million of the 4.6 million workers needed.
According to Brunelle young baby-boomers are leaving corporate America in favor of buying manufacturing companies. Many buyers are coming out of organizations that they helped grow from a few million to a few hundred million in sales. They are highly skilled in the areas of sales, marketing, and business development.
For most mid-size organizations, a young baby-boomer can take the helm, as well as grow the company beyond the founder’s ability. An additional benefit of having worked for large corporations is the people capital and relationship connections often lacking with the manufacturing founder.
To attract this type of buyer, a manufacturing business owner needs to make sure that the manufacturing side of the business can function without strict oversight. Ensuring that someone other than the owner is customer-facing and can perform quoting (RFQs) and job costing, assuages the concerns of many potential buyers.
