Business Description
This very successful and highly regarded building and civil engineering company was set up by the current owner back in the early 1980s and has for many years primarily served large manufacturing companies on a local, regional and national scale. Almost all of their work is in the commercial/industrial sector. Many of their clients are instantly recognisable Blue Chip Companies in the food and drink sector, the energy sector, the heavy clay (inc. brick) industry, steel industry and in the chemical industry.

The company has considerable experience in the heavy clay industry having constructed new kilns for the brick and clay pipe industries, and regularly carries out maintenance and refurbishment of refractories to kilns and heat treatment furnaces.

The business has become a bit of a specialist in these fields and works closely with in-house client or independent structural engineers to offer a full design and build service to their clients, this gives it a real edge in the market.

The company and staff have excellent internal skills and are able to undertake a wide range of contracts, varying from simple maintenance to larger new build and refurbishment projects in industries as diverse as Textiles, Engineering, Food, Clay and Retail. Project value is up to a maximum of circa £500,000.
Trading Hours:
As required

Number of Employees: 19

Tenure: Leasehold

The business enjoys high levels of repeat business, word of mouth recommendations and referrals so has never had the need to advertise. It does have a basic yet informative website that could be updated but does no advertising/marketing at present.

Support & Training:
The vendors are happy to provide a comprehensive handover to ensure a smooth seamless takeover. This should be a relatively simple handover as the business already has senior staff in place.

Location Details:
The business operates from ideal premises and comprise a large fully equipped joinery shop (circa 3,500 square feet), workshop (circa 3,500 square feet), offices (circa 1,500 square feet), stores (circa 330 square feet) and land for parking/storage (circa 13,000 square feet).

Leasehold Term:
The site is a mix of freehold and leasehold. The business owns the freehold for the joinery shop- we are advised current market value is circa £180,000. This is included within the current asking price. The vendor owns the other premises separately and the company pays him an annual rent circa £16,000 p.a. Rates are circa £10,000 p.a. The vendor is happy to sell all the freeholds as part of the sale or set up a suitable lease with the new owner, subject to negotiation. He would also consider the business being relocated.
