Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this busy contract cleaning business, which is located in the North West of England.
The business was established by our clients in 1987 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our clients desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates at times negotiated and arranged with clients generating an excellent turnover in the region of £120,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 61%.
Our clients offer a variety of services including general cleaning throughout all office areas, as well as industrial cleaning in schools, housing associations, stores and shopping centres throughout Greater Manchester and Cheshire, as well as window and sign cleaning and gutter cleaning.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the work and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a large amount of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by target marketing and advertising, as this is currently not undertaken. A new owner could also expand the geographical area where services are offered. There is already has a comprehensive website in place to promote the business and services offered. We feel this would be an ideal bolt-on acquisition for an existing operator looking to expand into the North West.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and prosperous business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
