300118 - Trade Supplies - $1,00,000 (includes $500k of stock and plant)

Ref #: 300118. Consumables; Trades; Multiple Markets

 When evaluating this business the following attributes were considered favourably:

  • Well established and profitable
  • Mon-Fri business with long-term stable staff
  • Wide spread of clients (low/no customer risk)
  • A variety of markets serviced (low market risk)
  • Very consistent Gross Profit ratios (circa $800k Gross Margin per annum)
  • Clear opportunities for growth, particularly in Auckland
  • Possible import substitution opportunity for the right buyer
  • Guaranteed market as consumables, by definition, need replacing
  • Excellent suppliers and strong relationships
  • Market leading brands
  • Enjoys strong market share as a result of 15+ years history in and knowledge of the market

Core business is the provision of trade consumables to a number of markets including construction; joinery; coatings, flooring and property maintenance. This business has an established positive reputation and is an acknowledged market leader in its sector, with a small stable team of staff generating $2m+ sales this financial year. Based in Christchurch, this is a strong South-Island business that is ready to push into northern markets, if the buyer is NI-based. Tangible assets include stock & plant valued at circa $500k.

To date the business has focused mostly on Canterbury, and positive circumstances have now enabled an additional focus into Central Otago. For an Auckland-based purchaser the obvious expansion will be into Auckland, given the construction profile of that region. The likely buyer will be:

  • A Christchurch person wanting to consolidate and take advantage of SI opportunities
  • An Auckland person wishing to establish a footprint in that region
  • An existing trade supplies operator wishing to expand the scale & scope of their operations
  • A product manager or mid-senior or regional/national manager wanting to take the step into business ownership with an established and successful brand

A market leading business with a guaranteed future!
