Business Overview

Vexus is exclusively retained to find a purchaser for this market leading business. Established for over 5 years, our client is a profitable manufacturer and distributor of specialist residential biofuel fireplaces. With a range of products, the sales are split; 55% direct end user sales and the remaining 45% are wholesale to other retailers.

As the bio-fuel fire market is relatively new, it is growing at a rate of 15%+ annually in the UK with all indicators showing long-term growth in this sector. Due to the fact they can be installed in smoke controlled areas without the need for a flue or chimney, the vast home consumer market will be the driving force behind the growth of this business.

The Opportunity

Our client seeks an outright sale of 100% of the shares in the business. Ideally the purchaser will have the appropriate expertise and synergies to take the business to the next level.

BUSINESS OVERVIEW

A fantastic opportunity to purchase a very well established Commercial Security Access Control Manufacturing business within the UK. The business was established by the current owners in their ‘spare room’ back in 1984 and has since experienced phenomenal growth, becoming one of the market leaders within the industry. This is a very well established business which is extremely well known within the marketplace. The owners have developed an excellent reputation within their field and as such have built up a number of loyal clients throughout the years. Set in the South of England, they primarily service the UK along with Europe, the Middle East and US.

“Ideal, low-risk ‘bolt-on’ for existing security manufacturer, looking to expand into new markets”

Known for their superior quality products which they manufacture in the UK, they have built up an outstanding and prestigious client portfolio with 95% of repeat clients. The company has consistently shown a healthy profit margin throughout the difficult economic climate, proving it to be a robust and viable business proposition for a potential purchaser.

They have established themselves as a leader in the industry with a reputation for high quality products that precedes them. Bespoke & Off the Shelf Products Manufactured in the South of England.

  • Opportunity to expand by tapping into the ‘Installers market’ across the UK along with undertaking Marketing activity on a regular basis to target new business opportunities

THE OPPORTUNITY

At present there is very little Sales & Marketing undertaken – in fact the majority of current business is repeat based. As ‘market leaders’ within the industry we feel that this business offers huge potential to a purchaser by building on the current reputation. There is an untapped ‘Installers’ market which can be looked at, as well as expanding current relationships with Distributors. Marketing the business more effectively will really take it to the next level by increasing brand awareness within the market place.

The facilities are also in the midst of being extended at one of the premises, whereby capacity will be geared up to enable an increase in production by a further 30%.

  • Reputable brand with high growth potential

  • Designed & Manufactured in the UK
  • Opportunity to develop the ‘Installers Market’
  • Direct and channel route to market
  • Established international client base

REASON FOR SALE

Our clients are now at a point in their lives where they are looking to retire from the business. Our clients feel that the future development of the business would be best realised in the hands of new owners with the commitment, enthusiasm, resources and fresh thinking ideas to expand and drive the business forward by building on the already successful operation.

SUMMARY

This is a rare opportunity to acquire an established Security Manufacturing business producing Commercial Access Control Products. Internationally recognised, this business offers an excellent ‘bolt-on’ opportunity for an existing security product manufacturer/supplier looking to expand its portfolio of products and expertise with a low-risk acquisition to help expand its operations with a market leader.
