Typical clients include large construction companies and their specialist M & E (Mechanical and Electrical) divisions, Building Consultants who list this business on their approved supplier lists as well as schools and colleges in the region.

The business enjoys very high levels of repeat business and has a loyal customer base due to the quality of its customer service. It is known to be a “perfectionist” hence its high levels of customer retention.

Approximately 85% of current work is commercial. The vendor has to date been selective in the business he has bid for and taken on, particularly over the last 2 years. There is huge scope to grow the business both with existing customers and targeting new clients within the region.
Growth and Expansion

The business has had regular revenue streams to date. Further investment and expansion would offer potential for the business to expand its operation further with a more proactive approach to sales. The vendor has never really looked for work and concentrates on his core client base. Many of these clients have large plumbing and heating requirements (both projects and existing site maintenance) that can run into hundreds of thousands of pounds but the vendor does not chase the larger projects through choice. A new owner with larger infrastructure could certainly tap into this further relatively easily. They could also look to introduce maintenance contracts and emergency call out services if so required.
Premises:

The business is run from a home office environment so there are no premises associated with the sale. The business is truly relocatable.

Business Hours:

As required
Advertising and Marketing:

Existing customers are the best advertisement for the business with word of mouth recommendations consistently generating new work and enquiries. The business undertakes no advertising or marketing such is the reputation it enjoys. A new owner could certainly increase this to help grow the business. The business could certainly benefit from an online presence.
