There is a workshop, storage room and offices on the ground floor and a mezzanine floor which is used as a further storage area. There is parking outside and a goods in area. The premises are secure with an alarm system. Rent is circa £13,750 per annum with rates of circa £1,465 per annum.|
|Growth Potential:||As previously stated, this is a growth market with an increase of circa 20% forecast for the coming year. The owners have built up the business with a small but skilled team of sub-contracted workers in order to keep the overheads down. There is an opportunity to save considerably with full time employees rather than self employed fixers and sprayers.
Very little is spent on advertising and marketing. Work comes in mainly from word of mouth recommendation or through repeat customers. The owners believe that taking on a sales agent or a full time salesman would reap huge benefits with new customers and contracts.
The owners have stated that the company could easily expand its operation within the retail sector by supplying fire prevention for shop fittings. This is a lucrative market which would expand the offering of the business bringing extra revenue and profits into the company|
