Since its founding, Stump has built deep relationships with manufacturers, and routinely tours plants and facilities around the world. Our 50 years of experience with manufacturing facilities provide us with a keen eye to the latest in machinery and equipment, lean layouts, and management tactics. We love a chance to put on our blue jeans and see how products and component parts are made! Manufacturing is witnessing key shifts as retailers and brands look to vertically integrate, international players look to diversify geographically, and strategic players expand and acquire talent, processes, and expertise.
