detail

Consistently generating over $1m +GST in sales, around 40+% of this stunning services business falls to the bottom line as income to one working owner (EBPITD). The current owner manages the business and the team, but is only occasionally 'on the tools'. There is a wide spread of both commercial (70%) and residential (30%) clients and as a result of the excellent brand credibility, most new business is referral based. The business also enjoys 'preferred supplier' status with several of its commercial clients. After 20 years the current owner is simply ready for a change.

  • Established and consistently profitable
  • Excellent systems and processes
  • Fantastic ROI and profitability
  • 1000+ clients on database
