Business Description


Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Datum Engineering.  Originally founded by our client nearly 30 years ago the business has an enviable reputation within the industry.

Datum Engineering are a specialist steel fabrication concern.  The business reports a healthy turnover of around £209,000 with a gross profit of circa 72% as per 2015 accounts.  The business has reported a higher turnover in previous years but is now run at a pace to suit our client due to his impending retirement.

The workshop is a generous size and is fully equipped with high quality expensive equipment.  The staff are all skilled Engineers with a high attention to detail.  The business has a loyal UK client base of around 25, seeing much repeat business.  Due to the success and excellent reputation of the business, our client has not seen the need to undertake any marketing or advertising.  We believe there is huge potential for a new owner to take the business to the next level by embarking on a marketing campaign or upselling services to the existing client base. Certainly, the introduction of a website would be beneficial.

We believe this would be an ideal bolt on acquisition for an existing company already working within this niche field.


The business is located within a busy industrial area in Kirkby, Merseyside.

Datum Engineering operates from a secure industrial unit on the well-known Knowsley Industrial Estate.  The business is in a fantastic trading location, ideally situated just off the M57 providing easy access to the rest of the national motorway network.

Kirkby is within an easy commute to the City of Liverpool, St Helens and the City of Manchester.
