Supporting Local Industries With Bookkeeping and Controller Services Throughout the Pioneer Valley
Western Massachusetts is beloved for its outdoor activities, from skiing, apple and blueberry picking, and leaf peeping to boating, cycling and hiking. Classical music performances at Tanglewood are a mainstay of each summer, as is The Eastern States Exposition ("The Big E") each September. Visitors also travel from miles around to visit the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and the MGM Springfield casino and resort.

Manufacturing — car parts, shoes, agriculture and more — historically formed the foundation of the Western Massachusetts economy. Recent years have seen the emergence of companies in spaces such as biotechnology, distribution and aircraft parts manufacturing. Supporting Strategies | Western Massachusetts provides bookkeeping and controller services to businesses in these and other industries, such as property management, throughout the Pioneer Valley, including Springfield and Chicopee as well as Agawam, Amherst, Holyoke, Northampton, Pittsfield, West Springfield and Westfield.
