- Excellent reputation and loyal customer base
- Huge potential for growth
- Equipment included
- Low overhead costs
- Friendly, professional team
- Wide variety of products and services
- Strong supplier relationships
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a well-established and reputable sign, notice board, and banner company, which is currently based in Surrey and is offered on a relocatable basis. The business was first founded in 2004 and has grown steadily since its creation, whilst also gaining an incredibly loyal customer base and an excellent reputation in the sector.
The company is a family business and market leader, which has been providing high-quality signs to schools, colleges, universities, surgeries, and businesses across the UK for many years now. Their signs and notice boards are supplied to many of the largest and smallest organisations in the country. They offer the perfect solution to every business. They pride themselves on the outstanding products and the quality of service that they offer, from design advice, through to helping clients choose materials, sizes, and to installation.
The friendly, professional team is comprised of 5 qualified designers and technicians, who all have excellent client relationships and are highly skilled in the sector. The team are passionate that the signs look good, are safe, and last for years to come. The signs come in a variety of materials and the business has excellent relationships in place with their suppliers. The company’s brilliant reputation is further enforced by the many highly positive reviews, which the business has amassed online. The company also has an 82% retention rate from their repeating and top-end client base.
It's worth noting, that the business has been advertised using the most recent turnover figures, which reflects a time greatly affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Previously, the business has generated an annual turnover of between £485k and £650k. There is huge scope for the new owner to easily return to these brilliant figures.
The business is currently based in Farnham, Surrey. The new owner could choose to either take over the premises for £22,000 per year or to relocate the business. This should provide the new owner with a great deal of flexibility over their work location.
All equipment will transfer over with the business sale, including 1 x large format flatbed printer, 1 x CNC router, 1 x bubble-free material applicator, 1 x brand new computer system, 4 x PCs, 2 x iMacs, 1 x vinyl plotter, plus all relevant hand and workshop tools.
A time-limited handover period can be negotiated with the current owners, in order to ensure a smooth and efficient transition.
This would be the ideal opportunity for someone with a wealth of business knowledge, who is looking to acquire a fantastic, smooth-running company.
There is huge potential for growth with this business, as there are massive opportunities to raise brand awareness and invest in advertising. Furthermore, the business is already following a brilliant growth trajectory, which the new owner will simply need to continue along, in order to experience further success.
The company has an excellent, easy-to-use website and a Facebook page. These platforms act as a fantastic sales window for the business. It would be beneficial if the new owner continued to utilise and optimise these platforms, along with creating some additional social media pages.
