Food Manufacturing – BOLT ON ONLY (VIC)

REF#: WM359

NOTE: This business must be relocated into an existing food manufacturing business with HACCP accreditation and access to refrigerated transport

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.

This is a perfect addition to a food manufacturer looking to expand by acquisition and we believe new, enthusiastic owners will easily improve sale and profits with a little sales and marketing activity.

Sheet Metal Fabricator (VIC) NEW

REF#: WM365

Commercial HVAC Specialist

The owner has been here since the 1970’s but he’s always made sure the business has up to date equipment, a quality client base and a reliable work force.

Sales for 18/19 were $3.8 mil with a profit to the owner of approximately $650K

This is not a jobbing shop, it is a specialist fabricator focusing on the HVAC sector and has plenty of work all year round.

The business is not a discounter, offering the cheapest quotes – it supplies a client base that requires high quality work.

For many years, the owner has been comfortable with the size of the business and despite being offered new work on a regular basis he has rarely taken on new clients or additional work.

This provides an enormous opportunity for new, enthusiastic owners willing to say YES to new work.

Most of the day to day running is handled by experienced factory management, CAD and production staff and the business can easily continue as a profitable free standing operation or add it to your existing business group.

This is a very rare chance to purchase a profitable sheet metal fabricator with a long successful trading history that has the equipment, the capacity and genuine growth opportunities.
