We are pleased to present an excellent opportunity to acquire this well established, staff led business with plenty of scope to further develop should a new owner so wish.
A solid trading history, great reputation and low overheads will no doubt make this very appealing to prospective purchasers and so we would recommend contacting us as soon as possible to register your interest.The business itself
The current owner acquired the business through ourselves some 12 years ago and we are delighted to see how successfully they have run it since then. It is a testament to how well regarded, and in turn profitable, the business is that each owner has operated it for such a long period of time. It is now only coming onto the market due to the owners other work commitments and young family that they wish to focus more time on.
That said and of particular note is the fact that the current owner only comes to the business premises a couple of times a month to ensure that monthly accounts, invoices and wages are taken care of correctly as well as dealing with new enquires via email. Day to day the business is run by the very capable and competent staff team with all engineering and maintenance matters being outsourced, as is the payroll.
The client base is split approx. 30/70 between domestic and commercial clients with the latter being predominantly other local family businesses including wedding venues, guest houses and restaurants.
A stock of table linen is available to hire however a new owner may look to expand this into other areas such as bedding and similar. In addition little is done to advertise the business due to the repeat and recommended work that currently comes in, but again this gives good potential to further increase turnover with a targeted marketing campaign.Premesisall measurements are approximate and for guidance only.
The business is operated out of an industrial unit in a commercial area of the busy and well known town of Leamington Spa. Since taking over the owner has expanded into the adjoining unit due to the increased need for space and combined the units into one whilst retaining the full height roller doors which serve each side.
To one side is the washing and drying area with 3 Girbau washers (2 owned and 1 leased) and 3 dryers, all of which are owned. There are two Girbau commercial roller ironing machines (1 owned and 1 leased) used for all bedding and table linen. On the ground floor and to the other side is a further work area with bagging machine, access to the staff toilet and through a lockable door to a store room that has been created to hold the stock of linen that is available to hire. In this room you will also find the water softener and water pump, both of which are essential items for this type of business.
A very useful half depth but full double width mezzanine floor has been formed providing an office area, space for drying and for ironing as well as further storage. The recently installed Intergas boiler can also be found up here.
Externally the unit comes with the benefit of 4 parking spaces to enable the 2 sign written vans that come with the business to be parked up as well as leaving space for staff parking.Further informationreference number
