Business profile:
Originating from a company established almost eighty years ago - and renowned as being innovators of the Active Infra-red beam, this business, itself now in its eighth year of operation is a leading designer and manufacturer of Infra-red perimeter security products.

From its base in Surrey, this business offers a wide range of products employing leading edge technology in the field of active and passive Infra-red detection - both as hard wired or wireless systems. On the active side the business manufactures a comprehensive range of beam sets, ranging from single, dual, quads, and columns/towers for both medium & high security applications whilst on the passive side, the business works with leading suppliers to provide a range of reliable Passive Infra-red (PIR) detectors for external low to medium risk applications, ideal for integration with CCTV and/or alarm management equipment. Its high security equipment offers NATO codification.

The business has also developed an Infra red beam set specifically for use in hazardous environments that enhances its range of products that are certified to the appropriate standards including that of the new ATEX requirements. This range comprises active Infra-red beams (ATEX certified), passive Infra-red detectors, magnetic door contacts/interface units, and CCTV camera housings and are suitable for use on off-shore oil platforms, petrochemical sites, explosive material storage and other potentially explosive environments.

With such a comprehensive and all encompassing product range, the company has equipment installed within Nuclear power stations, HMP services and Ministry of Defence (MOD) and Home Office properties - this business has recognition by, and indeed subjects its products for evaluation by the 'Home Office Scientific Development Branch' (HOSDB), for use in MOD & Home Office security systems, - right through to security installation companies and large private homes of high net worth individuals.

The cornerstone to the success of this business is its ability to remain at the cutting edge of Infra-red technology. Early in its development, this business was judged as a finalist in the BSIA (British Security Institute Association) awards held at IFSEC, for their innovation work in Infra-red, Radio Transmission, and Solar / Battery powered technology and continues to offer a level of technical expertise and integrity that Clients expect, able to call upon resources from what must be one of the UK's longest serving team within the field of Infra-red technology. Not surprisingly all equipment is designed and manufactured in-house - with all components built from scratch including all of the metalwork, printed circuit boards etc.

With turnover of approximately £110,000 for the financial year ending March 2008 generating gross margins of approximately 57% and significant intellectual property rights this represents an excellent opportunity for an existing operator in this sector to increase their presence within the industry or a new entrant to establish a firm foothold by acquiring a comprehensive product range and a strong, diverse customer base.
Facilities:The business is currently run from a home office environment with a small workshop on site. Individual system components are outsourced to longstanding members of the production team and then assembled accordingly with the use of ad hoc rental of workshop space when required. As such the business is easily re-locatable.
Competition:Within the niche sector of Infra-red security products this business already benefits from very high levels of awareness and with necessarily limited resources, invests carefully in marketing and advertising. The business has a very well designed and informative website which performs very well in all of the major search engines for all appropriate search terms as well as a suite of corporate product literature. By far the most effective form of marketing for the business is however, strong word of mouth recommendation testimony to the very high regard the industry has for this business and its product range.
Training/Support:The owner will provide full business familiarisation, training and handover to ensure a smooth transfer of the business to new Owners.
Sale Reason:the Owner believes the time is right to pass the business on to new Owners
