Description
Kent Cages was established in 1993 by our client after a passion for making bird cages took off as a family run business. The business has since gone on to become one of very few companies making the cages by hand in the UK and operates from within a large barn on a working within the village of East Malling, Kent.

Whilst the business is relitivily small, if ‘bird cage makers’ is entered into Google, then Kent Cages does appear on the first page of the search (as of 16th May 2017). The business is an ideal lift style change opportunity for someome that maybe semi retired or from an engenering background.

We have been advised that in recent months Warner Brothers have commissioned Kent Cages to produce some items for a new film such is the reputation of the company and craftmanship of the finished products.

Since establishing Kent Cages in 1993 our client has built up an excellent reputation within the field by specialises in hand building cage fronts, cages and carry boxes, show cages, nesting boxes and toys such as ladders, stands and Parrot gyms, many of which are shipped to mainland Europe, the usa and Far East along with the UK giving it a niech market within the sector.

In the opinion of our client, the business could easily expand by developing the web site further and taking on additional staff or purchasing modern machinery to cope with larger orders or mass producing popular items such as the standard cages and fronts.

Sales
Accounts to the year end 31 December 2015 show a an income of £58,828 with an adjusted profit in the region of £22,000 making it an ideal purchase for a hands on operator whilst working limited hours.

Trading Hours
The business trades with flexible trading hours to suit any new owner, although our client currently works Tuesday to Friday 8am to 4pm and some Saturday’s depending on the work load or general free time

Staff
Run and managed by the owner’s, their son and one part time staff member. We have been advised by our client that both their son and staff member would be happy to stay on under any new ownership subject to personal terms being agreed.

Summary
An excellent lifestyle change opportunity to acquire a well established and profitable business which has a strong reputation built on customer service and quality craftmanship whilst still offering tremendous growth for any new owner.

A meeting with our client is highly recommended to fully appreciate the overall business opportunity.
