Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market James Lee Print Services. The business was originally established in 1987 by our client, who is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
Over the years the business has been able to increase services on offer. The business runs as a general printers but also offers other services such as-
Call off and storage
Digital colour copying
Free delivery service
The current turnover for the business is an advised £57,800 with a gross profit of 63%. We believe this could be increased massively with some advertising. The business currently has no advertising but does have a website www.jameslee.co.uk. With a small marketing campaign to businesses in and around Kettering, there could be a large increase in sales.
This business is available as a freehold or leasehold. The leasehold price would be an advised £87,000.
The business is currently run at a steady pace by our client and we feel the printers would highly benefit from a new owner with some experience. Our client would be willing to offer a hand over period to make sure the transition is smooth.
The website promotes products and services they offer. One of the promotions available is a business starter pack for £250 + VAT, this includes 200 business cards, 1000 letter heads, 500 compliment slips and 100 invoices. This is a fantastic popular promotion, which could be advertised more on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
This is a brilliant long established business that has a great reputation for its quality of product and service provided. Our client has received 2 offers from local builders, however our client feels the business is worth a lot more and would love to see the business flourish further with a new owner. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
