Business description

Innovative Visual Marketing Specialists for sale (Reference: Project 19042):   

Established in 1982, this company specialises in the manufacture, print and production of high-end visual display graphics for workplaces, museums, retail environments, exhibitions and events and public buildings. The business is an ideal bolt-on acquisition or standalone business.   

Forgiving the hyperbole, but this is one of the finest and best-run examples in the sector we have ever come across, and we’ve sold quite a few. Every business listing mentions potential somewhere, so it’s always a bit hackneyed; however, an underutilised and under-marketed range of innovative proprietary products will whet the appetite of any trade buyer or marketeer who will recognise how exciting this opportunity is once they lift the bonnet and take a look.   

Why selling 

A sale has been instructed to allow the Vendors to plan toward retirement and the next stage of the business’s growth, which they feel will be best served under new ownership. Continued involvement for one of the director/shareholders is an option. A term consultancy may also be available, and the existing talented team are retainable, subject to agreed terms.
