Expansion Potential
The business has enjoyed steady growth over recent years and this is expected to continue in light of its growing and loyal customer base. The site has room for expansion if need be and this could easily be achieved if a new owner wished to employ further craftsmen as the demand is already there.

The company has a number of new designs, which are yet to be advertised, and are expected to be the company?s Next Generation Huts.

The business does very little advertising, no social media or exhibitions and could certainly expand this activity with a more proactive approach. The business is well positioned to take maximum advantage of this growth as it occurs since it has the necessary infrastructure in place.

Market / Competition / Non-Competition Agreements
The business has a strong website which generates most of the demand for the products. Additional targeted advertising and a social media presence would reap rewards.
