BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy heating and gas parts centre in Coventry, West Midlands.

The business was established by our client in 2002 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 125,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 30%.

Our client specialises in supplying a wide range of spare parts for central heating, gas and boilers including gas valves, heat exchangers, PCBs, electrodes, expansion vessels, fans, capacitors, filling loops, gauges, injectors, LEDs, micro-switches and sensors, plus many more from all the major manufacturers, all of which are available to both trade and retail customers.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours. Our client already has an excellent and informative website in place to promote the business, which benefits from online ordering facilities, which seems to be proving popular. Our client also offers the stock on the popular website EBay.

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