Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy printing business in Denton, Greater Manchester.
The business was established in 1995 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2004. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s unfortunate health problems. The business is currently run at a pace to suit our client and operates 4½ days per week, and according to management accounts to March 2015 it generates a healthy turnover in the region of £54,824 per annum as per 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of approximately 58% as per 2016 accounts.
Our client offers a wide variety of services including graphic design, in-house printing, bulk photocopying, web design, mailshots and direct mailing, promotional goods and rubber stamps. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the industry for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent goods and services offered. Our client already has two websites in place to promote the business at and , as well as pages on the popular social media sites Twitter and Facebook.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this busy printing business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
