Business Description
We are pleased to place onto the market this very long established home based medical supplies business which is presently operated from home in Colchester, Essex.

This Business was established in 1992 by the present Owner and 3 other partners and their shares were acquired over time;; he now wants to retire.

The business provides insoles for patients with minor foot ailments. There are 3 configurations for each part of the foot and there are 3 different products and they are all the same size range for adults only. The big advantage is that this product is off the shelf as opposed to a bespoke product. The price ranges from £27 for 2 pairs or £15.00 for individual units.

The owner operates the business 12 hours a week, with no staff and he simply processes orders as they come in. He has not pro actively sought new business and over the years, because he has not visited clients, they have found alternative suppliers. The hospitals that remain use him to replenish their stock.

The marketing strategy is in need of review, although there are some postal orders through the website. For many years now the business has been allowed to slowly decline as there has been no pro active effort to make new clients. The product itself is excellent and this business has huge potential in the hands of a good marketing/ sales Owner. It could also suit a company in the medical supplies industry.

The client base is very strong including NHS hospitals countrywide. It is also used by chiropractors and other professionals and there is a mailing list of approximately 3,000. The NHS could become a big client.

There are numerous competitors but this product is the best on the market. It is not a price sensitive product so there is potential to increase prices. The Owner has the products manufactured and he owns the tooling and templates.

The 2014 accounts showed a turnover of £11,598 with a gross profit of £5,070 and there have been similar figures achieved for the last couple of years. The assets are valued at around £10,000.

The business is operated from home.

The business is operated from home and is re-­locatable to anywhere in the world.
