Business Description
This successful purchasing and confirming business has been established for more than 8 years and has earned an excellent name & enviable reputation for its standards of both product quality and service. The business is developed from the vendor’s background in the industry and deep knowledge of the issues and problems inherent in managing the process of sourcing overseas manufacturing & supply, FX, import, logistics, holding and delivery.

Since its commencement of trading the vendor has found a willing client base for whom it is said that this management service was one that trade had been waiting for.

As the business has grown, new personnel and service products have been added to both extend the complete service offering and also ensure the efficient and professional standards of that service.

Each step in the growth of the company has been taken in response to the demand place of it by the industry customer base; in growth from existing customers, where confidence grows new and greater volume demand has grown and as larger potential customers have taken notice, so they have become a key part in the company’s forecasts and the scale of the services that they are requiring.

The scale of this new business is significant and is currently expected to increase annual turnover to circa £25,000,000 with a net margin of circa 35%.

This next phase of growth has challenged the resources of the vendor to a degree unplanned for, and so he has decided to seek a sale of the company to a buyer with the desire and the resource capability to not only meet the current level of demand but to also ensure the, as yet unknown, further growth demands which will certainly arise as this phase is provided for successfully.

The business utilises Sage for its finance & accounting, Customer data management and stock control is organised using OrderWise software, which has been customised for the company’s purposes. FreightMate software is used for transport and logistics management, which is a bespoke software that can easily be laucnhed as an independent product, tracking overseas production and shipment online.

The business manages 20-30 individual clients as an average, in any goven month and this leads to an average, accounting for a full client roster of circa 50.
