This is a unique opportunity to purchase a well established, specialist measurements and control solutions company with their own product range which is sold to customers all over the world. The company enjoys an excellent reputation within their customer portfolio. Although the company has huge market scope, the two owners, who have solely operated it since its inception. are now approaching retirement, making this a valuable investment with great potential.

This company designs and assembles high quality web tension measurement and control products for use throughout the process and converting industries, with new and emerging industries such as medical and high tech companies coming on stream as well. As the sole producer of these products in the UK, the company enjoys an excellent reputation and is seen as a serious contender among the limited amount of foreign competitors.

All the company’s mechanical components are manufactured locally to a very high standard, whilst the electronics are manufactured or sourced from companies within Europe and customised personally to suit the market served. There is considerable potential to improve the manufacturing and procurement process to improve profitability.

All products are made to very high specifications to withstand the challenges encountered within the industrial sectors served. They have been proven to stand up to substantial abuse and have therefore had excellent results where other competitor products of their kind have failed. The company’s products reputation for quality is also encouraging for customers, as down times and lead times are significantly reduced by comparison to competitor’s products.

Intelligent Business Transfer are honoured to offer its clients the opportunity to acquire the full shareholding in this web tension technology business. The business is currently renting the premises from which it operates. Should the interested party be so inclined as to acquire the premises, the vendors are willing to enter into separate negotiations regarding the acquisition of the virtual lease holding of the property, at the same time as the sale of the company’s products.

The business described herein is the only designer and manufacturer of its kind in the UK and is enjoying a reputation for supplying high quality products among their competitors. The products have shown their quality to surpass that of some of their US and European counterparts, which have been found to be less efficient in comparative situations. Enjoying a specialist sector of the market ensures that the profit margins can be substantial. There is opportunity to branch out into other areas where complimentary products are used in conjunction – e.g. Process and control solutions.

There is enormous potential to expand into Europe and the rest of the world, as these products are utilised in a vast array of industry sectors. So far, the current owners have not explored this route, although many existing clients originate from these areas. This business can be seen to have limitless prospects with unlimited scope for market expansion. This can be made via distributors and agents alike with resulting income growth.

The reason for marketing the business is to enable the owners to take retirement, although they are willing to be available as consultants during the initial introductory period. This sale presents an incredible opportunity for businesses involved in the engineering, manufacturing or distribution industry sectors. With the right sales force and marketing team, we firmly believe that the company can substantially increase the turnover whilst continuing to enjoy healthy profit margins.
