Business Description
Started by the current owner in 1982, this is a well respected commercial toolmakers that designs and manufactures complex press tools, predominantly for the aerospace and automotive industries.
Most of the tools made are supplied to the manufacturers OEM's or Tier 1 commercial press shops.

In addition to this work, the company also has an on-going contract to supply wing slats for the Boeing Dreamliner aircraft, which are produced on their own press in house. This contract is for 16 sets of slats per month, providing revenue of around £100,000 per year. Given that only this company can supply these wing slats, it can be pretty much guaranteed to continue for the life of that aircraft, which is probably going to be for many years to come, and will therefore support a take over/acquisition in its own right.

That, coupled with the market value of the equipment and the other regular clients using the business on a regular basis, should very easy justify and support the very reasonable asking price.

As this is a genuine retirement sale, the owner is also prepared to consider an extended handover period to ensure a smooth transition period, subject to negotiation.

This business would make a very sound addition to a similar business looking for additional turnover, with perhaps the option of amalgamating both into a single plant to achieve a significant cost saving with all of the sales benefits, or indeed, it could also work as a stand alone business for someone who is prepared to develop it further, using the solid foundations that are already in place.
