SOLD - 290817 - Import and Sales - $495,000

290817 - Consumables - Multiple Markets - Christchurch - Relocatable

This well-established business has been a consistent earner in recent years despite the owner slowing down to around 30 hours per week. The consumable products are used across a wide variety of markets and the business currently has a three tier sales strategy - direct; via retailers and via distributors. The owner is a home-based "one man band" utilising a logistics provider; and has been operating for thirty years. This is the first time on the market.

Owners Role

  • Receiving & dispatching client orders
  • Ordering stock
  • Customer service by way of phone calls & emails
  • General day to day running of the business

The owner has his "Gold Card" and with a couple of wee health issues, believes it is time to pass the mantle on to a younger, more enthusiastic operator.

The Opportunity

"Benign neglect" is probably the term best used to describe the management of this business in recent times. The owner ensures the business "ticks over" but has not chased opportunities that are readily available.

These include:

  • More regular client contact

  • Occasional sales & supplier trips

  • Sourcing new products for the existing 900+ reseller base

  • Improved systems & processes

  • Ideal for a husband & wife team

  • Suppliers

The business is the authorised NZ importer of one of its brands, and sources all other brands through suppliers in the UK and Asia. Some of the existing supplier relationships are long-standing and very sound, in what can be a competitive market.
