Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Phoenix Engineering.  This highly profitable general engineering firm has been a family concern since its inception in 1940 and genuinely comes to the market due to our client’s wishes to retire.

Phoenix Engineering has an enviable reputation for quality and reliability with many of its original customers still associated with the company.  The business provides a professional service, with a highly skilled workforce, to customer’s based both in the UK and also across Europe.

The business offers a vast array of services including CNC machining, turning, planning/milling, horizontal boring, slotting, broaching, numerically controlled a drilling.  Fabrications include up to 2 tons including machining in mild, steel and stainless steel, Mig & Tig welding.  

The business also offers steel erection, fire escapes, installation and plant relocation. Maintenance includes refurbishment of plant, welding castings and machine breakdowns.

Plant relocation and installation includes stripping out plant and equipment, transportation to new premises, re- installing and any necessary electrical work.

The business also specialises in sub contract machining, full machine shop facilities, roller manufacture and balancing (in mild steel, stainless and wood), special purposes machines, modification, maintenance, removal and installation and disposal of redundant plant.

This is a long established engineering business with a good customer base, however we believe with a pro active marketing campaign to attain new clientele the business is still possible of expansion. The business benefits from quality equipment valued at around £40,000.

Early viewing of this fantastic opportunity to acquire a profitable and clearly sustainable business with an outstanding reputation is highly recommended.
