About the Company
This superb business was established twenty-one years ago by its present owner. This is a classic example of an exceptionally profitable business based on superb customer service, hard work, absolute attention to detail and project completion on time and within budget. It is an unrivalled and professional set up which could easily be franchised. Its ability to carry out a wide and diverse range of blast cleaning and painting has made it the company of choice for a large and loyal client bank based in the South West.
The company carries out mobile grit blasting, power washing, industrial spraying and hot metal spraying to a wide-ranging customer base. It is capable of fulfilling small item projects such as gates, car parts, wheels, fire surrounds, bed-steads and garden furniture as well larger contracts on boats (fibre glass and steel hulls) bridges, railways, marine equipment, light and heavy plant, machinery, quarry equipment, houses, walls, barns, timber roofs, concrete buildings and floors, and swimming pools. Coatings are applied from primer to a complete paint system or specialized hot metal spray finish to the prepared surface.
The business is based in the South West. The location gives it a strong local commercial customer base but it is also within easy reach of the major road network covering the whole of the South West and towards London.
Marketing is limited to the website, a small advertising leaflet suitable for handouts and mail-shots and a presence in yellow pages. There is limited competition in the area with none who enjoy the same admirable reputation.
There is a significant amount of additional work available to a new owner who may wish to increase the number of mobile units and levels of trained staff. While the business has an active web site, currently there is no structured sales and marketing stragety to drive enquiry levels into the business, clearly there is a niche market and enquiries invariably turn into contracts.
The owner manages the business with one full time employee.
Reason For Selling:
The present owner now wishes to concentrate on developing other areas of commercial interest. There would, however, be a full and seamless handover inclusive of all training as required. This period would be subject to negotiation.
