Business Profile

This well established and reputable business was set up by the vendors almost 30 years ago and in that time has grown into a highly skilled and professional steel engineering and fabrication company providing its clients with a diverse range of products and services.

The majority of products supplied are manufactured in mild steel to meet customer specification. The company provides a complete turnkey solution from initial design through to supply and installation.

The company has positioned itself as a high quality premium supplier to the market and as such has built up an impressive historical customer base in the region. These customers include both commercial organisations and domestic clients from a wide variety of sectors within both the private and public sector.

Typical range of products this business supplies includes

• Balustrading and handrailing
• Gates, fencing and railings
• Grilles
• Mild steel fabrication
• Welding services including onsite erection

The business has a highly skilled workforce and manufactures and supplies to exacting standards. Its infrastructure is such that it can meet the most demanding customer requirements.

The business has built up a sterling reputation based on quality, knowledge and superior product design and manufacture . The company currently carries out pretty much all production in house.This ensures excellent quality control and superior product delivery.

Equipment:

The company has an ideal manufacturing facility that is fully equipped to carry out full turnkey production, including initial design, production and final installation.

A full asset register is available upon request.

All plant, equipment and vehicles are owned by the business and included within the sale price.

Key strengths:

• Having successfully traded for many years this business has built up a sterling reputation based on quality and trust. This is backed up with key memberships and accreditations giving customers peace of mind that they are working with a reputable, suitably qualified company.
• Superb record of testimonials and track records.
• Good level of infrastructure
• Excellent profitability
• Impressive growth year on year
• Excellent staff
• Highly desirable customer base (commercial and domestic)

Key Opportunities:

The company has access to a large production capability and could certainly accommodate a significant increase in business volumes within its own current infrastructure. There are many avenues for growth available to this business as there are many organisations whom could benefit from the services this business can provide.

Financial performance:

The business is being offered for sale on a going concern basis, all financial discussions will take place directly between the vendor and all interested parties under the auspices of Turner Butler.

The business achieved turnover circa £264,000 per annum last financial year.

Resultant gross profits circa £136,000 per annum. Adjusted EBITDA was circa £80,000 p.a. prior to director drawings. All plant and equipment owned by the business is included within the sale price (circa £33,000 as per the latest accounts). There is huge potential to develop this business further.

Asking Price:

The Asking Price of £150,000 including Net Assets is for 100% of the issued capital of the company, assuming Net Assets of £33,000 as per the latest accounts. The final selling price will have a £1 for £1 adjustment for any rise or fall in this benchmark Net Asset figure of £33,000 at completion.

Advertising and Marketing:

The business has a basic yet informative website showcasing the type of products and services it can provide.

Growth and Expansion:

Even though the business is well established there are significant opportunities to expand. The company does not employ any dedicated sales representatives nor does it have a catalogue to supply architects/specifiers/contractors and end users illustrating the products it can supply. The vendor has never proactively chased work; he has been totally reactive to the ongoing demand. A more proactive approach could significantly increase revenues as the products and services it provides are always in demand.

The business has spare capacity in terms of infrastructure.

Premises:

The business operates from ideal leasehold premises with excellent access to the road network. Current Rent is circa £800 per month. It is understood a new lease will be available to a new owner subject to negotiation.

Employees:

The vendor works full time in the business generally carrying our site surveys and purchasing materials. The business also employs a book-keeper, charge hand, fabricator, labourer and an apprentice. Staff are highly skilled and are able to multi task if need be.

The staff hold the necessary skills, paperwork and qualifications to carry out their jobs effectively and professionally, whether that be in the workshop, office or on site. The company has an excellent health and safety record and is trusted by its partners.

Support and Training:

The current owner would be happy to provide full training and support at handover and may be prepared to stay on for a further period should a new owner so require subject to negotiation.
