The situation

Wilkins Rogers Mills’ relationship with Gross Mendelsohn started when the flour and corn meal milling company sought to outsource specific IT department functions. In a move designed to free up their IT personnel to focus on core internal business, WRM hired Gross Mendelsohn’s Technology Solutions Group to provide ongoing help desk support for all of their Mid-Atlantic operations.

Not long afterwards, WRM began the process of interviewing accounting firms to conduct its annual financial statement audit. Wilkins Rogers Mills’ management team was impressed with Gross Mendelsohn’s experience in working with privately held middle market companies. They were equally pleased by the efficiency and performance of Gross Mendelsohn’s technology services solution.

WRM selected Gross Mendelsohn for its audit, as well as its corporate tax needs. In addition, Gross Mendelsohn provides WRM with technical accounting support and consultation on specific tax questions that arise throughout the year.

In our client's words

“Gross Mendelsohn has delivered a level of technical advice and expertise that is as valued as it is impressive. Their customer service standards are exceptional; Jim Kern has been an incredibly responsive auditor. I can say the same about the tax-related consultations we’ve engaged in with Scott Handwerger. Gross Mendelsohn has really been a great fit for us – the entire firm is service oriented, professional and efficient.”
