What We Do

At CopperFox, we are committed to helping our clients Build Better Manufacturing Sector Companies.


Our services are specifically tailored to meet the unique needs and challenges of businesses set up to manufacture products either for the local market or for overseas. We understand the pressures that businesses in this industry face, from managing your supply chain to resourcing skilled talent, managing complex projects and navigating cash flow challenges.​

We’ve worked with large Electrical Services companies, Building Maintenance companies, Civil Engineering and Land Development firms and Builders, helping them firstly secure a foundation for ongoing growth (business & operating structures), but also implementing important processes and procedures that makes managing their business more effective and efficient.

We embed ourselves within your management team to provide useful insight, analysis and advice around trends, performance, risk management and the most effective way to manage and grow the business, analysing the feasibility of options and opportunities along the way. 

​In our experience, critical areas of exposure for the Manufacturing Sector include the management of your supply chain, pricing of products ensuring they are fully costed, managing waste and inefficiencies, critical investment in Plant & machinery; cashflow management, and having sufficiently accurate transparency on production performance. Often owners are so embedded in the hectic day to day operational activities of the business, they are prevented from working on the business as opposed to in it.
