Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market pds Drainage Supplies.

This profitable business has been established for over 30 years with our client successfully running the business for the last 15 years. Our client has worked tirelessly in establishing a loyal customer base and benefits from high repeat trade and is only offered to the market due to our clients wish to retire. The majority of income is derived from local builders and the general public. In addition our client has approximately 25 account customers, including Travis Perkins and Grafton Group.

Pds Drainage specialises in the supply of plastic drainage products including gutters, drain pipes, soil and vent pipes, sealants, septic tanks, sewage treatments, waste and overflow pipes, cladding and water supply pipes and also roof line products such as facias and soffits. The business has an excellent reputation and offers fantastic customer service with a popular delivery service within a 20 mile radius, which could be expanded if required.

The business is currently run at a pace to suit our client due to his impending retirement. This is a fantastic opportunity for a new purchaser with enthusiasm and drive to move the business forward and we believe with a target marketing campaign, the account customer base can be easily increased to further enhance turnover and subsequent profit.

We highly recommend early viewing of this clearly sustainable profitable business.
