This well-established business has been successfully trading since the early 80’s under the stewardship of one of the current shareholders, who subsequently joined forces with the other. Their combined knowledge, expertise and experience helped win and retain a loyal following of customers and attract the right caliber of sub-contractors to carry the company’s good name. The company is now very well positioned in the region as a well-respected Electrical Contractor to builders and developers alike. The customer base is loyal, such is the reputation this business has secured.
The company’s aim is to provide a first class installation, staying within the brief but adding value wherever possible.
The business is well established and easy to run with no bad debts and a good cash flow. There is continual work in progress with good growth over the past few years. This is an excellent opportunity for new owners to take over the existing business and obtain their database of regular repeat high profile clients, which the company has secured.
The business would certainly benefit from a new injection of energy and business acumen to maximise the many opportunities at its disposal. Through choice, the vendors have been selective about the volume of work they have taken on over the last few years.
