Business Profile

The opportunity exists to acquire by way of a share purchase all of the issued capital in this property maintenance and building services company (“the Business”)

Along the South Coast of England, and in other parts of the UK, the Business has become one of the most successful and respected building services companies for its customers and clients, many of which have been customers since the first days of trading. The nature of the construction industry is such that it has to move with changing laws and regulations and the business has developed critical areas for its operations in the commercial and industrial services sectors including Housing Associations and Construction Companies. Alongside the more typical construction & maintenance activities such as electrical, mechanical or plumbing requirements, extensions, conversions etc, the Business has specialised in the installation or refurbishment of specialist Disabled toilet and Bathroom facilities.

In addition to this specialism, the Business has developed a long term relationship with a blue chip UK company and has become such an essential part of the services and maintenance of its properties that the Business has an office situated in the same south coastal premises as the client, in order to provide its services at any time that this important client needs them.

Along the South Coast, the Business is the trusted building services company to turn to and to the wider UK is considered a UK leader in the Disabled facilities sector. It has built its name on superior customer service, highly skilled staff, top quality equipment, and unwavering reliability, and all with little marketing or direct sales.

The Business is well established, prudently managed and with an enviable client & customer list. It is a leading UK specialist that is directly connected to UK legislation and commercial building guidelines in the provision of Disabled Facilities. It is extremely well placed to benefit from new owners who wish to build on this credibility and expand the Business’ activities both geographically and in the scale of services.
