I am selling my well established soft furnishing, manufacturing business so I can retire and travel.
-Well established business since 1981 -Two part time sewing machinists others available no PAYE or VAT - Well established since 1981, I am reluctantly looking to sell this fantastic profitable business so that I can retire and pursue my keen interest in travel. The business has been a great source of enjoyment and income over the years, and I'd be keen to see it go to a bright new owner, who can take it to the next level.
All of our current custom has been achieved through word of mouth alone with plenty of walk in customers also adding to these and becoming regular visitors over the years.
The premises itself is in an excellent state of repair with a new owner being able to walk in and continue trading from day one. 27 recently repointed solar panels, full double glazing, stone built with an attractive blue slate roof with off road parking and plenty of parking for customers around the property itself, making it easily accessible for both staff and customers.
09:00 - 16:30 Monday - Friday (with flexibility by customers calling us to arrange out of hours work)
The turnover for the business has been consistent, and is capable of reaching much higher levels of operation easily by increasing working hours and for a new owner to be hands on. I personally have taken a step back in recent years as I prepare to retire from the business.
We are head and shoulders above other businesses in this sector, with extremely talented staff who are a real asset to the business. We can do almost anything involving the use of a sewing machine and our service includes but is not limited to:
- Bed Linen
- Reupholstering Car Seats
- Caravan Seat Revamping (including padded foam)
- Wood Turners Smocks in lots of 100
- Clothing Alterations
Currently I employ two part time members of staff under 16 hours which keeps the business running smoothly allowing me to take time out where desired.
The business has not had the need for extensive advertising due to local popularity - but a new owner looking to double profits may wish to take a more active role on social media, as we do not currently use our account to push the business owing to outside advertising in other local businesses providing enough work for our small team.

The business could be grown easily by increasing our online presence and taking on public sector contracts, which we have turned down due to keeping the workload low for my own needs. If I was to stay in the business I would advise the new owner invests in these areas along with potentially new dedicated trouser machines if order demands increase, as we currently do these with regular sewing machines.
I would be more than happy to provide the new owner with my own personal support for 12 months on an "as and when needed" basis whilst they become accustomed to the business and its operation.
This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a beautiful freehold property with the added bonus of having a profitable and well established business running within. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss this further or arrange a viewing!
