Business Profile

This well known and respected business was founded by the vendor in 1961 initially as a motor mechanic and general engineering company and over the last 15 years, has come to specialise in the design and manufacture of equipment for the grooming and management of menages and arenas for equestrian sports and training.

The business has developed a range of arena levellers for all surface types and is very price competitive. All are simple and practical to use, with no awkward adjustments or settings to use. A small range of pasture management equipment is also manufactured, for assisting with the maintenance of horse pasture and small holder’s land.

The business’ current state is one where the vendor is suffering from ill health and is limited in the ability to manage the business in the longer term. There is a strong order book and the operations of the business are easily relocated.


Customers include high net worth individuals and market leading commercial customers in the Equestrian Arena sector, both in the UK and occasionally, internationally.

Customer Service:

The business offers customers the highest quality of manufacture & finish and great customer service. Clients can be assured of the quality of product through a satisfaction guarantee.

This is all currently accomplished through only 20-25 hours of full time commitment per week.

Key Strengths:

The business has many strengths including:

• Enviable reputation in the UK
• Competitively priced products
• Product design & ease of use
• Repeat business levels and referrals

Key Opportunities:

The business has enjoyed steady trading over its lifetime but areas for growth include development of marketing to drive new sales in other parts of Europe, increased marketing and promotions and the employment of full time fabricators to replace the vendor.

Extending trading hours and meeting the current high levels of demand is also a substantial growth opportunity since ill health limits the time available for the vendor work in the business.

The market outlook for the business is excellent. With a strong demand for this business’s services a new owner who is capable of instilling additional ideas will have every advantage of building on an excellent platform.

This is a unique opportunity to purchase a very well established business. It is a well-structured business generating excellent profit margins with excellent growth potential.
