Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Wrought Art, originally founded by our client over 45 years ago. The business has a loyal client base established from the outstanding reputation of the quality of workmanship and benefitting from many word of mouth recommendations.
Wrought Art are a steel fabrication concern specialising in the manufacturing of products such as wrought iron gates, railings and fences. The business currently reports a turnover in the region of £24,742 with a gross profit of circa 22% due to our clients impending retirement, however in previous years the business reported a much higher turnover in the region of £60,000.
The workshop is fully equipped with all the essential tools of the trade. Revenue is derived from the businesses excellent reputation with no advertising currently undertaken, we are advised that our client is currently turning work away due to him being a sole trader. We believe any new owner can easily rebuild turnover by employing staff to meet demand and embarking on a modest marketing campaign to further awareness to new customers.
Early viewing of the long established and reputable concern is highly recommended.
