Infant / Baby Brand (Online) NEW
The brand has been established for around 20 years and the current owners became distributors in 2008.
In early 2018, the owners purchased the brand outright and with no middle man, the margins have increased significantly.
T/O is around $300K pa – all paid via credit card or EFT prior to dispatch.
Sales are mostly to end user customers in Australia and around the world – approximately 50% of sales are to overseas customers.
The brand and designs have been trademarked and the sale includes all IP and multiple websites.
The business is run from the owner’s home and can be operated from anywhere in Australia or overseas.
The owners purchased the rights to the brand with the intention of taking the products into new markets but their main business has grown significantly and they don’t have the time to commit to this business.
There are many areas of untapped growth and we believe new, enthusiastic owners would easily expand the business.
