Business Description

Business Profile

This well established and very reputable business was set up almost 30 years ago by the current vendor and in that time has grown into a highly professional and respected supplier of Industrial,Workshop and Garage Equipment products. The company  provides a broad range of high quality branded products,consumables and components to customers within a variety of markets including the  industrial, agricultural, motor,  commercial, manufacturing and production sectors.


Approximately 75% of  revenues are from on-line sales through two highly successful E-Bay shops as well as the business’ own website with the remaining 25% being made up of repairs, calibration, certification and installation services. These additional services provide customers with unrivalled customer service and support and ensure ongoing  revenues for the business, not to  mention  helping to forge sterling customer relationships.


The company can boast a very large and loyal  customer base (circa 2,500 active account  customers) who rely on this business to provide them with the correct products  that are readily available,  fit for purpose, and come with the appropriate after-sales service and technical support. Sales come via the  telephone, E-bay, website, trade counter, email and through two external sales representatives with items being delivered or on collection.


Over the last few years the business has expanded into e-commerce and online sale of  certain smaller product lines and has enjoyed  significant success in this arena so much so that in excess of 75% of current sales revenues are now generated via the internet.


Because of its service level approach to  business the company enjoys impressive levels of referrals and repeat business.


The current  customer list is very impressive and includes large blue chip clients who have significant presence in the region as well as small/medium organisations on a local, regional and national scale. The spread is good and as such the business has no over reliance on any one customer, sector or region.  The majority of sales are within the  UK with a very small percentage (circa 1-2%) shipping overseas.


The business has set up an enviable supply chain over the years and sources parts direct  from reknowned manufacturers/suppliers that are leaders in their fields. These supply partners provide a choice of in-demand, reliable goods  that are synonymous with quality and the brands speak for themselves.


The company has a strong asset base, generates impressive profits, has a sterling reputation and  holds a large level of high quality stock  which ensures it can deliver  mission critical items to  its clients time and time again.. The vendor has put in place a talented team of staff with key  employees in place for each part of this multi-faceted business which ensures it runs smoothly on a day to day basis without the need for his day to day involvement.


Growth and Expansion:

The company has access to further product ranges and could easily expand its product offering to incorporate even more complementary items.


Moving forward the business could easily look at setting up other depots replicating this highly successful model as the key supply chains are already in place.



The business is being sold with stock levels at just over £1million. There is an additional £500,000 of stock available for which the vendor is prepared to offer a stock loan in addition to the sale price, if the successful buyer wants to buy this additional stock.
