Chemicals & materials

Industry-specific strategy to help you build a resilient business

Today’s chemicals and materials companies are navigating a host of regulatory and environmental challenges, as well as economic uncertainties. From digitalising operations to sustainable R&D as well as optimising plant operation, our audit, financial advisory and consulting solutions help you safeguard assets and overcome barriers in the sector. 

Our approach

The chemicals and materials industry is truly global in nature. But a global industry also faces multiple challenges ranging from new energy, safety, and environmental focusses to supply chain disruptions, a shifting labour market and new technologies, as well as multiple economic and political uncertainties.

Forvis Mazars has specialist teams that understand your business and offer an array of services that include audit, financial advisory services, consulting, tax and regulatory and compliance advice.

With the shale gas boom in the US, the rise of the chemical market in China and mining operations being scrutinised with a greater focus being placed on sustainability and supply chains, we understand that your sector is experiencing considerable change. As a result, you may have several priorities for your business, including:

  • Safeguarding assets
  • Producing timely, relevant financial information
  • Creating a tax-efficient corporate structure

When you partner with us, we treat your challenges as our own. We have in-depth knowledge of the issues you face and provide advice and guidance that is tailored to your specific needs.

Our services include:
