This business has stood the test of time, having operated successfully for 39 years and it is still going strong. Demand for their products is continuous, and their loyal long standing customers keep returning because of their excellent service and availability of stock, and guarantee of delivery within 24 hours. Essentially – farmers always need to pump water; lawnmowers always need to cut lawns; construction companies always need to maintain and build roads and buildings. Their need is this business’ demand.
Staff are an integral part of this business. Most staff have been with the business for at least 15 years, know the stock, know the customers, know the products, and know how to operate the business efficiently and profitably. In fact, Pieter, would be happy to stay on as the full time manager, as well as to participate as a 10% shareholder, paying his share of the cost of the shares. This would be an added bonus for any purchaser of the business, because of the resulting continuity in all aspects of the business.

Net profit for year ended 28 feb 2019 = r 800,034
