Business Description

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established engineering business in Totnes, Devon.

The business was established by our clients in 1965 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business is currently not operating to its full potential and generates a turnover in the region of £80,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.

When the business was fully operational our clients offered a wide variety of activities including fabrication and welding, specialising in marine boats, guard rails and hull repairs, to name a few. The property boasts 132 sq. metres of floor space and is fully equipped to suit the trade.

The business built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the work and services offered, which resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel the business could be run to its full potential and increase the turnover significantly. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the services offered. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the business.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Daco Engineering occupies substantial ground floor, lock-up premises, ideally located within a small industrial estate in the town of Totnes, Devon. The business is surrounded by a wealth of complementary businesses and benefits from a high volume of footfall and passing trade.
