Plastic Injection Moulding (VIC) NEW
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.
The owner moved toward retirement in 2014 and since that time the day to day has been handled by very capable management staff.
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.

Looking for a stronger strategic future in Industrial Engineering?
Let’s scope out an almost ideal set of ‘must-haves’ for a strong strategic base:
- Your OWN well known brand.
- Your OWN Intellectual Property / design.
- Not being reliant on just making parts for someone else’s product
- YOU pull the levers
- YOU are in control
- YOU can see YOUR future.
- This is NOT a ‘pie-in-the-sky’ strategy … it IS possible and realistic.
To state the obvious, the ending of Automotive production in Australia comes with a severe limitation of traditional demand for many engineered components.
The Australian industrial engineering industry has been able to live off the demand of large car companies and others who have simply included those parts made into their own products (they own the brands).
We’re seeing a lot of businesses that now must search for new products to engineer. The search is not an easy one and there are multiple minds addressing the challenge.
WHAT IF? What-if a manufacturing / engineering business was available that ticks the boxes on ALL of the above listed dot-points?
Well we have such a business now ready to sell … it could be an excellent way forward for your long-term profitability.
If this is of interest then please call me. I’ll be pleased to provide further detail.
