The focus of a mew owner will be general management; business development & logistics/stock ordering from overseas. There are some technical aspects to product management and a minority of ‘bespoke’ sales do require a level of industry knowledge and experience. The existing owner is in good health, and is quite prepared to work part-time, or consult or be a casual employee if required. His support could even extend to retaining a shareholding in the business; or perhaps some  vendor finance if necessary. An interest in outdoor pursuits and /or the safety industry may assist a mew owner in getting to grips with the markets.


This business has been highly consistent in recent years, and now provides an established platform for growth.
