- Equipment included in sale
The business for sale is a well-established bespoke joinery manufacturer and hardwood merchant based in Perth, Scotland.
For 9 years Brodie’s Timber has used both traditional techniques and modern practice to create beautiful, carefully constructed items of bespoke doors and furniture for private customers, alongside structural engineering projects for major clients. It has also recently become a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen, further cementing its reputation within the joinery sector.
The company boasts a large onsite timber stock, enabling it to hold a vast range of brands in stock, sourced locally and internationally. This incorporates kiln dried, air dried, rough sawn, and cut to size makes, all of which are available to sell for trade and directly to the public.
The retail shop is open 2 days per week for buying timber, finishes, abrasives, and other woodworking products, although the buyer may also wish to expand into selling woodworking machinery and tools as well because this is an area which has not been fully explored. Brodie’s Timber minimises its waste by selling its offcuts and burning scrap wood in its industrial wood burner to heat the premises.
The company is available on a leasehold basis, with 6 years of the 15-year lease remaining. Lease renewal will be due in 2027. The vendors will consider any offers including a lump sum on completion and deferred payments.
Brodie’s Timber is found 15 miles north of Perth, directly off the new A9 route between Edinburgh and Inverness, on the edge of the Hermitage Woods at Dunkeld. The site consists of a 432m2 warehouse with comprehensive forklift accessible racking for timber and sheet material storage, a 114m2 machine workshop with fixed extraction units and woodwork machinery, a 144m2 joinery workshop with tools for bench woodworking and movable extraction, and a 144m2 retail space with various displays and a Kudos till system. The site also has an industrial wood burner and heating system, an equipped office, a 24m2 Larch clad purpose-built timber air drying shed, and a 20ft kiln drying container with Arrowsmith units and fans. There are 6 car park spaces and delivery access for 45ft articulated trucks. Approximately £30,000 worth of equipment is included in the sale and a full inventory is available on request. Additionally, the vendor is happy to provide a transitional period.
Brodie’s Timber has a superb website which showcases its vast range of work, whilst its dedicated following of 2,500 on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter allows the company to market directly to potential clients.
The ideal buyer for Brodie’s Timber is someone experienced in timber or joinery who wants to propel their career by taking on a thriving enterprise. The new owner will be able to unlock further growth of the business by expanding its reach, therefore adding new clients to its already strong customer base.
The business has adapted during the Covid-19 pandemic, reducing labour hours and opening its shop by appointment, thereby streamlining operations. Prior contacts are now feeling more confident with the reopening of hospitality businesses, with Brodie’s Timber receiving an increasing volume of renovation in this sector. Private clients in Perth have also shown growing support to shop local and invest in lifetime furniture rather than disposable products.
