Established back in the 1950's and under the current ownership for the last 17 years this well know and extremely profitable business is located in the heart of a south Essex town. The business carries out work such as Railings, Gates, Staircases and Sheet metal extraction units. Situated in a highly residential area the business carries out no advertising and a lot of work is repeat business from a database of around 75 + clients with approximately 35% using on a monthly basis. New business is picked up through word of mouth. Although there are no contracts in place they are a preferred supplier by the local council, Housing Association, and Cory. With a successful hand over period and perhaps 1 of the vendors continuing work on a part time basis there is no reason why these agreements should not stay in place. A signed 3500 Weight VW and a Ford Trader used for deliveries are included in the sale.
