Business Description

Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this well respected Glass Engraving concern which was set up by its previous owner 30 years ago and run by its current owner for the last 25. The business is being offered for sale reluctantly, but my client feels it may now be time to enjoy semi-retirement. Since ownership my client has invested in new equipment along with fixtures and fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price. The business is owner operated and employs the help of just 1 part time helper and has an annual turnover of 60,000 with a GP of 65%. The business has always specialised in the engraving of glass only. We believe, however, that there is further potential to increase trade by starting to engrave metal products. Inscriptions enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with passing tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
