Precision Engineering Business in the West Midlands For Sale
Ref: 3089-C H
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very busy precision engineering business, ideally located within a town in the West Midlands. The business was established by our client in 1979 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 £1,100,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 32% as per 2016 accounts. The business is an established precision CNC machining company. Our client offers machined components, with parts for the valve industry, forging and casting manufacturers, hydraulic bolt tensioning industry and the car industry, all of which have been worked with locally, nationally and internationally. All the components can be machined from free issue material or the business can source material from trusted suppliers. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality and workmanship of the products, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. We feel there is scope for a new owner to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by operating at weekends as there are no restrictions for this. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered, as well as maximising the use of social media to promote the business. There is already a very informative website in place to advertise the business. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy and thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
