The company provides both internal and external painting and decorating services (more recently incorporating stripping back services) on a commercial basis. The company has a good number of regular Blue Chip clients (approximately 30) who use their services on a regular basis with many of these highly desirable customers having long tems contracts and Framework Agreements in place, which ensures consistent levels of work moving forward. The company holds “Approved Supplier” status with pretty much every customer they work with.
Customers include councils, housing associations, NHS Trusts, local authorities, SME’s, national construction companies and housebuilders to name but a few. The company has dealt with many of its customers over a long period of time due to the fact it always meets, and in many cases, exceeds the Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) that are set. Because of this the company benefits from having ongoing agreements in place (typically running for several years), a strong future order book and good visibility of works well in advance, which enables them to plan projects effectively and profitably.
The company has built up a highly skilled and trustworthy team of time served decorators that do not require “on the job” supervison. All staff, and the company for that matter, have all the necessary paperwork and accreditations to work on site.
The company has an excellent management team in place, has low overheads, is simple to run and is very profitable. There is a loyal customer base and approximately 90% of revenues are from existing customers returning on a regular basis.
This business would make a perfect ”bolt-on” for another company who are looking to either expand their own operation into the luctrative North Wales/North West region and immediately increase their database of blue chip prestige customers.
Alternatively it would appeal to a investor/company who is looking to expand their services into the decorating sector of the market acquiring a number of major contracts automatically in progress.
As already mentioned the business does very little in the way of marketing preferring to rely on repeat business, referrals and recommendations to generate its sales revenues. It does have a basic yet informative website and also utilises social media
