Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market McGowan Engineering.

McGowan Engineering was founded by the current owner in 1971 and has been a real labour of love over the years. The business has not been trading for the last couple of years whilst the owner has pursued his other business selling military surplus but all assets are to be included in the sale making it relatively easy for an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner to reinstate and take this once thriving little business to new heights.

The business previously offered toolmaking, Capstan work, milling and tapping services to a variety of customers and in latter years specialised in the repair and maintenance of stationery engines.

Scope to improve:

Reinstate the engineering business and carry out an advertising campaign.

Maximise the use of social media.

Develop a website to extol the services provided.

Take on and train an apprentice.

Increase the external signage to drive customers to the business.

Invest in new machinery and technology.

Offers subletting possibilities to a complimentary business.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
