Business Description

The business was originally founded by our client some 17 years ago and formed as a Limited company in 2009. The business currently has 16 full time employees, with all employment contracts available upon request.

The Executive Assistant plays a key role in the daily running of the business and has extensive knowledge of the operation.

The company is currently not in the process of recruiting new staff.

The Yard Manager is capable of looking after the day to day operations, although the current vendor is hands on and further work would need to be undertaken by the Purchaser to complete a transition.  He is also WAMITAB compliant.

The business is reliant on the knowledge of the Managing Director whom has vast industry experience particularly when purchasing scrap vehicles.

The new owner would need to have or make provision for these qualities.
