About the Business| Owners contribution

Currently owner works 43 hours per week is turning 71 and ready to retire.

A family business established 27 Years ago.

Started by a fitter/turner with no experience, this business model is easily handed over to a new owner with systems and procedures and a well-trained staff member more than capable of running the business in the absence of the current owner.

With its competitors confined and contracted to individual brands and franchise agreements, this business has garnered a very loyal following from a variety of regular large account holders with its ability to diversify its range and therefore its availability, quality and consistency of products.

It’s personalised service commands a loyal following of larger client buying managers. A favoured supplier by these demanding Niche market clients where consistency, quality and customer service are valued over the lower budget, less personalised alternatives.

Potential & critical success factors

Addition of Website. Currently operating on word of mouth alone, there is great opportunity to introduce a website, essential to any modern-day business.

With the acquisition under way by Dulux of 17 Paint Spot locations, and as such the limiting of variety in these stores after the acquisition is complete in Mid October, enables this business to stand strong as an excellent choice for clients needing that larger variety and continuity of past & presently used products.
