Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market This outstanding e-commerce builders merchants was originally founded in 2014 and has quickly established an enviable reputation and a solid client base with turnover at £150,000 per annum. The website consists of state of the art software written by our client that enables easy process of orders generated from the website, turning the orders into instructions, which in turn relays the information to the many suppliers our client has amassed. The business further benefits from very low overheads as the business is run solely by our client from home, with all stock and deliveries undertaken by the suppliers directly. The client base of circa 800 is included in the sale price. Additionally, supplier accounts are also available by separate negotiation in the region of £20,000. Currently the site lists approximately 35 products to be used by the building industry. We believe with an injection of marketing and advertising this profitable concern can easily be propelled to the next level by expanding the product lines and opening up delivery to the general public. The business has a lot of potential growth in turnover, it is currently run at the owners pace who isn’t able to put 100% commitment in to it, due to our clients other businesses. The turnover could increase greatly with an owner who is able to put more time into the business. The 2 websites work hand in hand, both websites have a customer base of circa 1000. Dealhut has seen a superb figure of approximately 730 orders between 1st Jan 2015 - 23 April 2015, and the websites have a projected turnover in the region of £200,000 annually with a gross profit of circa 40%. This is a fantastic business opportunity with our client willing to help with a hand over period if required. With the business genuinely coming to the market as our client wished to focus on other business interests.
