Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Cougar Craft.  Established by our client some 30 years ago the business is a highly respected wood working and manufacturing concern, which genuinely comes to the market as our client looks towards retirement.

Cougar Craft produces beautifully hand crafted products, including bespoke children’s furniture, display cabinets, dolls houses, blackboards, and display stands.  The business uniquely also specialises in the supply of sensory toys for special needs children.  Our client and staff member are both highly skilled craftsmen and produce top quality products to clients individual requirements.  Also a large percentage of work is producing stretcher bars for oil or photographic canvasses.  All products are sourced from sustainable wood suppliers.

Although clearly successful, we believe the business has huge potential for growth.  In particular we believe the business would benefit from a marketing and advertising campaign, as currently none is undertaken as the business replies on its excellent reputation and word of mouth referrals.  The business could expand into complimentary lines, promote CNC profiling and utilise the internet including e-mailshot to customers to attain new business contacts.

The sale includes a user friendly website which could be further developed by introducing an on-line shop, which we believe would greatly enhance sales.  Our client is willing to assist with a six month hand over period if required.

This is a lovely highly respectable business.  We believe it would be an ideal acquisition as a bolt on to an already existing business operating in a similar field or equally an opportunity for an enthusiast skilled craftsman/woman to continue the outstanding quality concern.
