Manufacturing and Calibration Services (VIC) NEW AGREED SALE


If you’ve been searching for a business where you’re not stuck in an office or warehouse all day, this Calibration Service business may well be what you are looking for!

Sure, there is still some time spent doing the usual book keeping but the majority of the owners days are spent providing on-site services in metro Melbourne and country Victoria.

This business is ideal for a “hands on” person who isn’t required to possess any particular skills but you will need to be qualified with the National Measurement Institute. The current owner will assist and oversee the completion of the licence.

  • Has focussed on niche markets such as petro/chemical, dairy and wine industry
  • The business does some light manufacturing
  • Very long term customers, some have been with the business since 1984
  • All customers are located in metro Melbourne and country Victoria
  • Premises can be leased or the business could be easily relocated
  • T/O has averaged over $280K PA with the average profit to the full time owner of around $110K PA for the last 4 years

This would be a fantastic bolt on to an existing calibration or service business.

The owner is looking to retire but is happy to provide a generous handover to the successful purchaser.

Price: $180,000 + SAV ($10,000)

Plastics Fabrication & Manufacturing (VIC) NEW


The business specialises in engineering and manufacturing a large range of plastics products used for engineering, industrial and commercial applications. The customers are end users which are spread across many industry sectors such as engineering, construction, hospitality, automotive, building, retail and electrical.

The business will need to be relocated to another warehouse facility, around 400-500m2 would be suitable.

  • Large majority of customers are located in Victoria
  • Established in 1988
  • Owners retiring
  • All products are manufactured in-house, the business does not do any on-site installations
  • The owners are involved in this business on a part time basis

The business has mainly relied on staff to run the day to day operations so we envisage a fully committed, “hands on” person who has experience in plastics manufacturing would be an ideal purchaser or would it be a valuable addition to an existing manufacturing or fabrication business.

Price: $195,000 + SAV ($130,000)
