BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and popular printing business, which is ideally located within the village of Slinfold, Horsham, West Sussex.

The business was originally established in 1933 and has been in our client's careful ownership since 1986. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 4 days per week.

Our client offers a wide variety of printing services including digital printing, leaflets, brochures, newsletters, business printing, invoices, company stationery, lithographs, plus many more. Our client has continuously invested in the business and uses digital technology to deliver orders, printed to a very high specification.

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

The property boasts approximately 91 sq. metres of floor space. Our client currently uses two thirds of the ground floor and sub-lets a third to a local business.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, as currently the business is run at a pace to suit our client. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered. The business already has an informative website in place to promote the services offered at www.springfieldpresssussex.co.uk.

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