Elite Manufacturer and Supplier of Flagstone Flooring
- Pioneer of Reconstituted Flagstones
- Excellent Testimonials Online
- Long Standing and Well-Established
- Multifaceted Advertising Strategy
- High Demand for Such High-Quality Stock
The business for sale has specialised in reconstituted interior flagstone flooring and paving for over 30 years. They trade almost exclusively online garnering both national and international customers. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a leading flagstone specialist with high demand and the highest quality stock.
Established in 1985, the business has attained fantastic relationships with suppliers of aggregate, cement, pallets and pigments. As a long-standing business, there is an accumulation of excellent testimonials listed on their website as well as a gallery of 20 case studies.
The business is heavily favoured by older property/barn conversions where underfloor heating is required. Traditional flagstones can be as much as 8 inches thick and do not support underfloor heating, whereas the business’s flagstones are replicated at 25mm thick and are ideally suited for use with under floor heating systems.
As a relocatable sale, the vendor estimates that it would cost no more than £5000 to transport the machinery to a new location and start the business running again.
The business currently operates from a large unit with space for machinery, moulds, storage of finished product prior to shipping, vehicles and raw materials. Each flagstone is handmade, and they do not supply any mass machine produced content.
Products manufactured include interior flagstones, exterior products, adhesive & grout, finishes & preparation. All flagstones are made to order with care and precision in the workshop. The business works closely with local and national companies and organisations, suggesting a few on their own website. Online, customers can request a free quote and order samples. The website averages around 10,000 visits a month.
The business also has a YouTube and Facebook page. Given the right buyer, these platforms have massive scope for further growth.
What makes the business successful?
This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a professional online retailer, high in demand for such high-quality products and service. As a relocatable sale, the new owner has a vast scope to move the business to anywhere in the UK. The current owner only works part-time hours, meaning if the new owner increases working hours the effect on the sales turnover will be ten-fold.
The Ideal Buyer
For further growth, the new owner could quickly enter the wholesale market to sell to retailers rather than directly to customers. The ideal buyer would need to be someone physically able to do the work, but no experience is necessary as training will be provided
- This is an opportunity that benefits from being relocatable
- Current owner operates in Newent, the un-spoilt market town in Gloucestershire
- The area has buildings dating back to the 13th century
