$195,000 - Christchurch



This little (but growing) business ticks all the boxes, and for all the right reasons:

  • Established and profitable
  • Modest overheads & improving gross margin
  • Assisted by regulatory environment and local government funding
  • Excellent systems
  • Nationwide sales
  • Huge referral base
  • No staff
  • Non technical
  • Owner works 40-45 hours per week
  • Relocatable within greater Canterbury

The owner is looking to retire and pass the mantle to a younger owner who can also be passionate about 'giving back' to the planet. The products & kitsets sold by this business produce a rapid and  demonstrable result that is acknowledged and valued by anyone from consumers through to corporate buyers, who commit their businesses to improved environmental practices.

The buyer is likely to be someone who is comfortable taking a business generating $335k + GST sales per annum, to perhaps 2-3 times that over time....and adding resource to achieve that as required. Or they can continue to milk what has now developed into a nice 'cash cow' business generating $100k + owner profit per annum.

The business simply needs a premises of circa 250 square metres (could be a barn or outbuilding) and the ability to create a temperate environment to assist in part of the manufacturing process. This could easily be on a lifestyle block; or in a small industrial building anywhere within greater Canterbury (where they will enjoy cost effective access to inputs).
