This high technology company was established in 1967, and acquired by the present owners in 1998, who transformed it from a sales organisation that provided repair and maintenance services, to a services company that do sales.
They import, supply, install, maintain and refurbish industrial electronic equipment to a client base that vary from the industrial, logistics, waste disposal and mining industries. They have an active client base of over 200 clients, and their sales revenue is largely annuity income from their installed base as their client base require ongoing verification to comply with legislation. As this installed base increases through the efforts of their established sales team annuity revenue grows as they are the only ones that can maintain, calibrate and certify the equipment. The industry is heavily regulated and the cost of accreditation on products is very high, creating a formidable barrier to entry.
The business has an established management team with a Financial, Production and Sales Director, all of which will remain on. The Managing Director has a few years left before reaching retirement age and is available to remain on until then. They have a good succession plan in place with one of the other directors having the potential to take on the leadership role. The majority shareholder is the Chairman. semi-retired and no longer active in the business.
