The company has considerable experience in the heavy clay industry having constructed new kilns for the brick and clay pipe industries, and regularly carries out maintenance and refurbishment of refractories to kilns and heat treatment furnaces.
The business has become a bit of a specialist in these fields and works closely with in-house client or independent structural engineers to offer a full design and build service to their clients, this gives it a real edge in the market.
The company and staff have excellent internal skills and are able to undertake a wide range of contracts, varying from simple maintenance to larger new build and refurbishment projects in industries as diverse as Textiles, Engineering, Food, Clay and Retail. Project value is up to a maximum of circa £500,000.
Number of Employees: 19
The business enjoys high levels of repeat business, word of mouth recommendations and referrals so has never had the need to advertise. It does have a basic yet informative website that could be updated but does no advertising/marketing at present.
Support & Training:
The vendors are happy to provide a comprehensive handover to ensure a smooth seamless takeover. This should be a relatively simple handover as the business already has senior staff in place.
The business operates from ideal premises and comprise a large fully equipped joinery shop (circa 3,500 square feet), workshop (circa 3,500 square feet), offices (circa 1,500 square feet), stores (circa 330 square feet) and land for parking/storage (circa 13,000 square feet).
The site is a mix of freehold and leasehold. The business owns the freehold for the joinery shop- we are advised current market value is circa £180,000. This is included within the current asking price. The vendor owns the other premises separately and the company pays him an annual rent circa £16,000 p.a. Rates are circa £10,000 p.a. The vendor is happy to sell all the freeholds as part of the sale or set up a suitable lease with the new owner, subject to negotiation. He would also consider the business being relocated.
