This time last year, Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which was said to benefit American manufacturing sector more than any other industry. This legislation further strengthened one of the most powerful government-sponsored incentives available to manufacturers and distributors, yet it still remains underutilized by companies failing to claim the incentive to the fullest extent possible.

Join alliantgroup Managing Director Reed Showalter for a complimentary webinar to review how manufacturing companies, distributors and value-added resellers can grow their operation in 2019 by maximizing the value of available government incentives.

During the webinar, alliantgroup industry practice leader Jacob Wood will also review how your peers in the industry have been able to utilize this benefit. If you are a value-added reseller, distributor or manufacturer – you won’t want to miss this webinar!
