(Sole trader)
Ref. IS052
Location : West Dorset
Asking Price : GBP 250,000 Inc. Assets
Set up over 39 years ago and as such is a very well established and reputable business providing a comprehensive range of niche metal fabrication products and engineering services to a variety of clients in various manufacturing sectors.
The business- comprehensive metal fabrication facility and a commitment to quality, ensures that all fabrication is done consistently and to the highest standard.
With in-house craneage facilities, the business offers customers fabrication solutions for projects such as Chassis assemblies, Conveyors, Agricultural, aerospace and forestry equipment, inspection machines and walkways.
The business- rigorous quality control procedures ensure that consistent strength and finish are maintained on all welds. Every detail of a customer order including quality specific requirements are visible at each stage of the production process, quality alerts are always top priority.

Expansion Potential
The business is well positioned to take maximum advantage of growth markets as they occur such is its ability to provide a diverse range of products and services in house with quick turnarounds. It has the infrastructure already in place to cater for significantly more work whether large or small scale.

It also has the ability to enter new markets should a new owner so wish as it has a sterling reputation in place.

Market / Competition / Non-Competition Agreements
The business could benefit from a more strategic internal medium/long term sales and marketing planning. The business would also benefit from the creation of a website to showcase its products and attributes; essentially the business does very little in the way of proactive marketing.
