Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Lincoln Metalcraft. The business was originally established in 1976 and was taken over by our client in 1986. This is a well-established business that receives a generous amount of repeat loyal trade, from very happy customers. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
The business specialises in the design and manufacturing of gates, railings, staircases, security bars and grills and automated gates. Our client offers home visits for free quotes, designing and fitting of their products. They offer their services to the private and public sector, such as local councils and homeowners.
Lincoln Metalcraft is currently generating a projected turnover of around £160,000 per annum with a gross profit of 65%. This is a healthy turnover that could be increased with the help of a new owner. The purchaser could look to boost turnover by advertising more. The business has a website www.lincolnmetalcraft.co.uk this promotes the business well. However, social media sites such as Facebook, are a cost effective way of marketing a business.
The business has a substantial client base and benefits from regular referrals and word of mouth trade. Our client currently has regular commercial and domestic contracts, information will be included in the sale.
The business has several domain names online; are also looking to improve their website.
