The OSU South Centers MEP staff was very knowledgable and understanding of our situation. The partner, Rea & Associates, they provided was very helpful and knowledgable. The OSU staff was creative in finding a solution to our problem. I would recommend any manufacturer take the time to work with them and to take advantage of their assistance.
A financial analysis was conducted by OSU South Centers through a partnership with Rea & Associates that included a site visit and tour to become familiar with company processes and procedures as it related to the costing and pricing of products. OSU South Towers and Rea also conducted a review of the company financials and assisting with the breakout of costs between company departments/divisions to determine relevant application methodology for both labor and overhead. The team then developed and calculated labor and overhead rates based on the determinations made above. This allowed the client to adjust current pricing model to accurately incorporate labor and overhead into job costs so that an expected margin could be calculated on all quoted jobs and compared back to actuals.
