Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Graphic Arts Printing Systems UK Ltd or gaps Ltd for short. The business was established by our clients in 2009, who now look to sell, due to the desire to focus on other business interests.

The business runs as a supplier of affordable printers, electric paper cutters/guillotines, cold roll laminators both manual and electric which can be desk top or floor standing models, guillotine blades and cuttings sticks, binding glue and pop up roller banner boxes.

They supply worldwide using UK next day delivery services. The company uses both tnt for larger items and Parcelforce for smaller parcels. 95% of products supplied are from China with loyal customers mainly through Europe. Orders from China are received 6 weeks from order on regular order cycle. Gaps Ltd average sales value £500-£600.

Graphic Arts Printing Systems UK Ltd generated an advised turnover of around £128,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 36%. There is huge scope to massively increase this figure. The purchaser should look to invest more in stock levels. If orders are placed without availability in the warehouse, customers may order from somewhere else or can wait up to 6 weeks for the delivery. In this trade people usually purchase products to replace broken machinery and so it is paramount that stock is readily available.

The business can be easily managed from a home office which would be good for a buyer that doesn’t necessarily live in the area. The business would be an ideal opportunity for a partnership with experience in the trade, however a first-time purchaser can be trained.

This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
