Jostens. Minneapolis, Minnesota

Jostens, an American manufacturer of memorabilia, have made significant investment towards energy-efficient improvements at multiple facilities within their real-estate portfolio along with recent new real estate acquisitions. Through a blended approach, using facility-related tax incentives such as the EPACT deduction and engineering-based cost segregation, members of our staff were able to recognize and reconcile significant cash flow benefits and free up capital for the company. This capital was later applied to additional facility improvements that were identified and recommended as part of the study. The post-tax economic benefit for Jostens outweighed, by a factor of 10, the cost of the facility and asset study.
