Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this busy printing business, ideally located close to Leeds city centre in West Yorkshire. The old established business has been in our client’s careful ownership for the past 21 years and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £40,000 per annum, with a good gross profit. Our client offers a wide variety of printing and design services including business stationery, funeral stationery, advertising, books and magazines, programmes and tickets, to name a few. Our client has built up an excellent client base including Leeds University and the students, school medical organisations, shops, societies and the general public. We are advised that the business rates are zero at the present time due to the level of the rateable value. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by operating on Saturdays. The business is currently run at a pace to suit our client with the help of a part-time printer and part-time designer. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this exciting opportunity to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is owner run and managed with 1 x part time printer and 1 x part time designer.
The business is open: Monday – Friday: 8.30am – 5.00pmSaturday – Sunday: Closed
