Well-established and Reputable Fire Safety Business in Yorkshire
- Fantastic reputation amongst clients
- Strong and returning customer base
- Wide range of fire safety services offered
- Equipment included in sale
Due to the retirement of the current owner, this fire safety business is now available for sale. It is a division of a parent company based in South Yorkshire but is ultimately an independently owned and managed fire protection company.
The enterprise became a Limited Company in 2017 and serves a range of SMEs and NHS clients across Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Humberside, and Nottinghamshire. Several facility management and property development companies across these counties also benefit from the business’s services.
It conducts a comprehensive selection of fire safety services, including fire risk assessments, fire alarm and emergency lighting installations, sales and commissioning of portable fire extinguishers, fire safety signage, and portable appliance testing. Additionally, the business offers annual servicing of fire alarms, emergency lighting, and fire extinguishers.
The business’s extensive customer base values the affordable pricing of its services which does not compromise on quality, as well as the impeccable professionalism of all staff.
The business is easily relocatable and can be operated from home or as part of a larger business, therefore giving the new owner a fantastic amount of flexibility, especially as some services are provided by specialist contractors.
The buyer will be perfectly equipped to enjoy a strong start to their ownership, as an extensive array of equipment is incorporated into the sale price. The company’s fully-fitted, logoed van and all stock items are included in the price (worth £5,500 and £2,500 respectively), as well as all the necessary equipment required to conduct the business’s services. A full, detailed inventory of all equipment is available upon request.
Additionally, the buyer will inherit the business’s professionally-designed website, social media platforms, extensive customer database, and preferential rates from suppliers.
The business offers fantastic growth potential which can be unlocked by offering live fire extinguisher training. Only a few companies provide this training, thus offering substantial extra income, estimated at £7.5k - £10k p/a. This is based on providing 30-40 of such courses per year, presently undertaken by the parent company who will cease to provide this training upon completion of the sale.
This is an excellent acquisition for any type of buyer. However, some experience in issues related to fire safety would be beneficial, especially if the new owner is wanting to offer some of the services themselves. For example, a background in the electrical trade would be useful for operating the installation and testing of fire alarms and emergency lighting. Likewise, a serving or retired firefighter would be a brilliant instructor for live fire training. Nonetheless, a great range of training is available to the new owner and their employees. Further information is available upon request.
