44 year history and enviable reputation for supply and installation of high quality furniture. An opportunity to acquire the key assets of this highly successful business.
The current operation is lean and focused on web originated sales. We have an extremely professional online shop/showroom for high end reception, boardroom and meeting furniture and have great relationship with a wide range of quality suppliers.
Design solutions have been the core of the business. Turnover in peak years has reached £750-£800k with up to 5 team members but the business is currently operated by the owner on low overhead. Extensive database of quality previous customers, excellent systems incorporating online CRM and Accounting packages alongside slick operation for record keeping from one or multiple locations.
The business commenced in 1976.
Since that time we have had 44 years of successful trading. Initially shopfitting and latterly supply and installation of Commercial Furniture.
The business has maintained a high level reputation across the marketplace, has never been in debt and has been privileged to never suffer from any significant level of bad debt – the total over the full period is less that £20k.
The business has always remained compact and personal, designing and arranging supply and installation of furniture and fittings for a vast range of clients in the spectrum of retail, education, commercial, hospitality and healthcare.
In recent years the business has downsized from the optimum of 5 employees to the current position where Ken has operated the business from home.
Now, approaching 72, the owner is keen to embark on alternative ventures but, due to the emotional investment as much as the financial one, would like to see the business legacy continue and grow on into the future.
The key value of the business for its current and future operation is primarily in the high quality, slick and impressive website: www.kenrandfurniture.co.uk
This contains an excellent range of up-market furniture, sourced from suppliers in the UK and Europe and produces a consistent visitor flow. despite the recent policy of zero investment, either in SEO or Advertising it still appears of the front page of Google for a number of key product lines
Secondly, we have a quality, curated listing of email addresses, currently held by Signupto. When employed, these have consistently produced increased visitor figures to our furniture website and consequential new enquiries.
Alongside this, we have a comprehensive, online CRM system with extensive records of past clients and enquirers.
A great opportunity for the entrepreneur with a flair for Design and Project Management to build from a solid foundation.
Currently operated from home base. Using Voipfone can be run from diverse locations. Easily relocated.
