Business profile:
This is a unique opportunity to purchase a family run business established for ten years specialising in the supply and fit of floorcoverings. Operating nationally, this business has a presence in both the domestic and Contract markets and the Public and Private sectors with Local Government, Education Authorities and Health Authorities amongst its Client base. It has also successfully completed contracts for Public Houses, Hotels, Clubs, Nursing Homes, Housing Estates and Restaurants. The domestic market is becoming increasingly important. With an excellent reputation and such a strong Client list it has massive potential and the capacity to be even more profitable for any new owners with energy and enthusiasm.

The product range encompasses carpets, vinyls, rugs, laminates and safety floorings. The range of carpets includes the toughest economy tiles suitable for schools and other low budget, hard wearing installations, to luxury modular carpet suitable for hotels and the leisure industry. This business also supplies and installs all types of wood and wood effect flooring and has considerable experience in meeting the Health and Safety requirements in areas where safety is of the prime importance, such as wet areas and showers, food preparation areas and kitchens, hospitals and schools.

For the domestic market there is an excellent range of floor samples, including carpets from leading manufacturers, rugs, vinyl and laminate flooring.

The owner of this Business is a member of the Master Guild of Craftsmen and as such is in demand from other Contractors for his fitting services.
Facilities:In an excellent location, with good passing trade, the well established rented, warehouse premises has ample parking. The warehouse is fully fitted, displayed and well stocked with an excellent range of floor samples and comprises a Ground Floor sales area of 870 square feet, a further office and sales area of 490 square feet, and an upstairs storage area of 490 square feet. Monthly rent is £800.
Competition:Trade and local press, a range of local directories including Yellow pages and yell.com and the finest form of marketing, word of mouth recommendation are used to advertise and market this business. The business also benefits from a basic web presence that could be significantly extended.
Growth Potential:There is significant scope for this business to improve its performance. The local competition is negligible and shrinking. Potentially lucrative trade sectors such as pubs and Clubs represent significant opportunities. Further work to improve this business’s web-site will also improve customer awareness of its products and services as more and more trade customers increasingly use it as a tool to find suppliers offering the best quality products and fitting services at the lowest prices.
Training/Support:Our client will provide a handover period to ensure continuity and success by providing complete assistance for a planned and smooth handover.
