Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established saw tool and cutter service and supply business in Evesham, Gloucestershire.

The business was established by our client in 1974 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 249,000 with a gross profit of approximately 41%.

Our client specialises in the manufacture and servicing of saw blades and cutting tools for the food, plastics, engineering and car industries to name a few. The business also offers a collection and delivery service within a 40 mile radius of the property.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the industry, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours of the business, as well as embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business and the services offered. A new owner could also launch a website for the business to promote the services offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
