This manufacturing business has been established for over 15 years and is operated by the owner together with experienced staff in the factory to undertake the work. Sales last year were well over $1m and the business is profitable. It is a small specialised body building operation specialising in the manufacturing of truck bodies and trailers, which also undertakes modification and repair work. It is an authorised modifier under the VSB6 National compliance code and an authorised repairer under The Motor Vehicle Repairers Act 2003. As the business has been operating for many years, it has built up a clientele of repeat customers and provide their services to end users in various industries including the mining, government and rural/agricultural markets. The client base is a group of niche high value clients.
The owner’s main role is to oversee the running of the business operations generally and to perform the role of the Sales Manager. The business currently has 5 employees in addition to the owner, including a Production Manager who oversees the workshop and jobs/work being undertaken. The employees are trained and have the knowledge and experience required to undertake this type of work and achieve the high-quality workmanship the business is known for. There is an extensive library of previous builds which the business has manufactured over the years, which means that each time a similar/repeat job is quoted there is information available to assist with the build and quoting.
The Vendor advises there are expansion opportunities a new owner could adopt, given the energy and desire to do so. The Vendor has advised he is wishing to start transitioning to retirement, so is able to assist the purchaser with a handover and additional training/help if needed. This business could be suitable for someone wanting a “stand-alone” profitable business in this industry which they could potentially grow and expand further or keep at the same boutique/niche level. It could also be suitable for a bolt on for an aligned company with an interest in entering this field or wanting to develop a stronger presence here in Western Australia. Asking Price includes Vehicles, Plant and Equipment, Stock and Goodwill.
