Food Manufacturing – BOLT ON ONLY (VIC) NEW
NOTE: This business must be relocated into an existing food manufacturing business with HACCP accreditation and access to refrigerated transport
This is a profitable division of a larger food manufacturer. The sale will free up much needed space for the owner to expand their main operations.
There are two primary ranges – both are savoury products, one ‘wet’ and one baked.
Total division sales are in excess of $400K pa with excellent margins.
The net contribution after COGS, labour and expenses should be at least $120K pa for the new owner.
The products have been established for 15+ years and the sale includes all recipes, machinery, domain name (not used) and social media.

Plastic Injection Moulding (VIC) AGREED SALE
Long Established Business – Absentee Owner
Same owner since the mid 1990’s, this well equipped custom moulder is an ideal bolt-on to an existing plastics business.

Unfortunately, the business lost a large customer at the start of 2018 and sales are now around $1.2 mil PA, down from around $1.8 mil PA.
Adjustments have been made and things are back on track but the historical figures are now irrelevant, so this business is unlikely to be suitable for a first time buyer or a buyer who needs to have a great set of figures to satisfy their accountant or a bank….!
What it does mean is that experienced operators have a chance to pick up a business with 10 machines ranging from 80 to 480 tonne capacity, more than a million dollars of profitable work and a very competent workforce including Production and Admin managers.
You can leave it in it’s current location or relocate to your existing premises.
