We are producing results.

Working in manufacturing and distribution takes advanced skill and specialization — not only to create products that are revolutionizing the world around us but also to build a successful business. That’s where we come in.

We work relentlessly to be a key component of your success and complement your strengths. With a thorough understanding of your goals and needs, we bring our financial, tax, business management, consulting, and IT solutions to the table. These skills — coupled with team members equipped with an in-depth knowledge of your industry — allow us to help find valuable tax incentives, streamline your financial processes, and build your company’s success.

Testimonials

  • “The friendliness and professionalism displayed by the Blue & Co. team during our audit is first class. We feel like there is a true partnership between Blue & Co. and Manar, Inc. Keep up the good work.”

    Larry Johnson

    Manar, Inc.

  • “During my professional career, I have worked with other big accounting firms along with sole practitioners. Our organization switched to Blue & Co. last fall. In spite of being a first-year engagement, Kurt Beier, Gavin Fox, Mitch Parks, Erin Walsh, Paul Roth, Kristi Blausey, and Chris Reid provided us with the best service which I have ever received from any accounting firm.”

    Adam Scott

    Wilson’s Companies

  • “I suppose it is fair to comment that I worked with three firms before Blue & Co. that challenged my expectations. As far as accuracy, Blue is very detail oriented. I do not receive notices from the IRS requesting any forms that were missing or correcting the filed returns. As far as performance, our 2017 business and personal files were completed weeks early of deadlines. And as far as responsiveness, I’ve never waited more than 12 hours for a final answer.”
