Rarely does such a long established, highly regarded business come to market. Having been founded by the vendor in 1974, it now comes to market as he looks forward to a well earned retirement. One of the premier fork lift companies in the East of England, it enjoys a reputation second to none for the quality of its work and the integrity with which it is run.
Suitable either as a bolt on for an existing operator due to the ease of relocation or to an owner worker, this business offers a good return to the new vendor and also presents many opportunities to expand on a very solid base.
Currently well located for access to the A11, A47 and all roads out, this profitable concern comes highly recommended.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF Only for sale as the vendor wishes to retire, the business was established in 1974 and enjoys a reputation as one of the best and most professional businesses of its type in the East of England. With a turnover in excess of £265,000 and enjoying the high G.P. you would expect, this is a really solid concern that will appeal either to a larger company wishing to expand or as a start up with a ready made order book, a large list of clients and a good stock of machines bringing in income. The client base covers multi-national companies through to the smallest of cottage industries and supplies machines that range from huge container handlers down to tiny pallet trucks with everything in between.
There are currently around forty trucks which are included in the price and are either hired out on short or long term hire or available for sale.
The business is split between machine sales, hire and repairs with the last currently being the largest part. There are two engineers employed, one full time and the other works three days a week. In our opinion a new owner could easily and rapidly expand all areas of the concern to make an immediate impact on growth and profits.
ACCOMMODATIONALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
If required, there is a c. 4000 sq. ft. unit available in the Industrial Park in East Harling currently used by the vendor.
Fully equipped for repairs and storage, this site is well located for easy access to all the major A roads and is ideal for a new owner to take over.
Containing all the necessary equipment and having more than adequate storage, it is ready to go and presents a perfect opportunity for a working owner.
