This long established, highly regarded and consistently successful family owned natural gas heating business is offered for sale for the first time in more than 30 years and represents a rare opportunity for a qualified natural gas engineer to acquire their first business, or for a larger firm to secure a valuable and profitable client base in the most densely populated part of North Devon.
The business serves the domestic market only with clients concentrated in a relatively tight geographical area which policy has been developed deliberately to minimise travelling time in the more rural and less populous areas of North Devon using LPG or oil based heating systems. Very well organized and run, there is very little in the way of weekend or evening work required.
A substantial and detailed client base is held with between 2,500 and 3,000 considered active and in receipt of regular mailings for annual servicing. We understand that approximately 40% of income is derived from new domestic installations and 45% from scheduled servicing, the balance from breakdown work.
Run by a small, but very experienced, team supported by one self-employed fitter as required for larger domestic installations, the owners are willing to stay on in a part-time capacity if desired by the new owners.
Two vans are available by separate negotiation.
