This presents a rare opportunity for a successful and diverse sheet metal fabrication company. A potential purchaser could utilise the existing premises, skilled and experienced staff, strong customer relationships, forecast work and plant and equipment to continue to operate this business as a standalone, or leverage as a “bolt-on” to an existing business in a complementary field as a means to diversify.
This is an excellent strategic opportunity to leverage economies of scale for a “bolt on” purchase by adding significant quality works and volume to an existing business.
