Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire (on a business only basis) an exceptionally well run and performing “turn key” sports equipment sales, hire and servicing business with an excellent reputation along with a strong and consistent brand.

The business has only now come to the open market as it’s our clients desire to leave the industry and pursue other business interests.

Chandler Sports Ltd has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client since 2009 and who has grown the business year on year to an impressive level with turnover and profit levels growing steadily.

The business offers people who are Owners / Managers of health and fitness facilities with technical assistance to maintain their fitness equipment through a planned service and maintenance contract programme at varying levels, along with repairs, equipment sourcing and installation.

The business benefits from a strong client base and as such covers the whole of Scotland, Cumbria and the North East of England and further benefits from having a very informative website ( ) in place to help promote sales and the services offered by the business.

We feel that there is tremendous scope to increase the already impressive turnover and take the business to the next level by undertaking in a robust national marketing campaign to generate new contracts along with the possible expansion of the workforce to help accommodate new and ongoing contracts along with revised operating hours.

The business trades on its reputation for quality and service and has outstanding future possibilities. It would potentially be an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or larger enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry.
