Business Description
Business Partnership are delighted to bring to market one of Central England's premier glazing firms, which has been established for over 35 years, and is being offered for sale for only the second time in its history.

Operating from industrial premises just 2 minutes from the local motorway junction, it enjoys great connections throughout the UK. 

When the current owner purchased the business 14 years ago, the customer base was almost exclusively local and a lot of work was put into changing the client profile into todays model.

The business now has a wide-ranging client base with regular business from many schools, hospitals, hotels, commercial, office buildings and renovations of landmark and listed buildings. In the past 14 years it has carried out major glazing projects for many well-known ‘top-30’ UK construction companies. They have gained an enviable reputation for quality of service and workmanship which has ensured that they are trusted with some very demanding and individual installations.

This would make a good stand-alone business for someone looking to buy into a business that is not just main-stream retail, or equally a bolt-on for an existing similar business that is looking to move into this sector, or expand its market share in the sector.

  • Great location just 2 minutes from M40 junction
  • Customers nationwide particularly for structural glazing
  • Very experienced installation team
  • Well optimised website driving new enquiries

  • Genuine scope for expansion
  • Retirement sale with offer of on-going support
Business Partnership are delighted to bring to market one of Central England's premier glazing firms, which has been established for over 35 years, and is being offered for sale for only the second time in its history.

Operating from industrial premises just 2 minutes from the local motorway junction, it enjoys great connections throughout the UK.

When the current owner purchased the business 14 years ago, the customer base was almost exclusively local and a lot of work was put into changing the client profile into todays model.

The business now has a wide-ranging client base with regular business from many schools, hospitals, hotels, commercial, office buildings and renovations of landmark and listed buildings. In the past 14 years it has carried out major glazing projects for many well-known ‘top-30’ UK construction companies. They have gained an enviable reputation for quality of service and workmanship which has ensured that they are trusted with some very demanding and individual installations.  

Having been in the same premises for 35 years, it is the 'go to' in the area for tradesmen and general public looking to buy glass for all sorts of applications. Hence there is still a substantial local customer base, but this is now mixed with much larger, more financially secure clients across multiple sectors, and from a wider geographical area, thereby ensuring there will always be work from at least some, if not all, sectors.

Over the past 10 years they have built a strong national reputation in structural glazing (glass you can walk on), where end-user clients, architects and builders very much rely on the firms skills and expertise. Within this market they have become the ‘go-to’ supplier for bespoke glass well and light-well covers, all of which are individual items. These alone generate in the region of 250 enquiries per year, principally for installation in mainland UK, although some have been exported to clients overseas. The ‘conversion rate’ of enquiries into sales is extremely high.

The firm is a ‘merchanting’ business, with little 'stock' held, as most of the materials and products are ordered in pre-cut, made to order, which ensures cash-flow is positive. They enjoy a good working relationship with many leading glass manufacturers, glass processors, aluminium and UPVC window and door frame fabricators and other specialist suppliers. 

This would make a good stand-alone business for someone looking to buy into a business that is not just main-stream retail, or equally a bolt-on for an existing similar business that is looking to move into this sector, or expand its market share in the sector. 
Support & Training:
A full handover can be assured following completion. The owner is also prepared to consider a longer supporting role should this be desired.


Location Details:
The business is located in Oxfordshire and is just 2 minutes from the nearest M40 junction, making access to the whole motorway network very easy and therefore effectively greatly reducing travelling time from base when going out on site visits or to installations.

Leasehold Term:
The current lease is due to expire in March 2019 and is renewable. Current passing rent is set at £14,400 p.a.
