Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy precision engineering business, ideally located within Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

The business was established by our client in 1977 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates an outstanding turnover in the region of £537,381 as per 2019 accounts, with a gross profit of approximately 45%.

The precision engineering business provides a high quality sub-contract machining service, supplying top quality products. The business has the flexibility to machine intricate components, either turned or milled. The business also specialise in precision and production engineering as well as prototype work using a CNC turning facility, as well as conventional machines.

The business offers an increasing range of services including CNC turning, CNC milling, conventional turning, conventional milling and drilling/tapping, to name a few. The premises boasts 84 square metres of double height workspace.

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 there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by operating on Saturdays. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote to services offered. There is also scope to establish a website to advertise the business.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving business to the next level, it would also be an excellent bolt-on to an existing business wishing to expand; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
