Prospective purchasers

We invite interest from firms already in the building / construction sector or established other firms in related sectors looking to expand. 

Preference is for investors / acquirers with experience running businesses of this size or larger. 

All prospective investors will be vetted by the seller's advisory firm. 

STRICTLY NOT INVITED: If you are a search fund, or a scout looking for an opportunity to pass on to an investor, or someone who does not have the funds themselves but who attended a course on how to buy a business "without investing any of your own money", or a fairly new company without a history of accounts at Companies House will likely not pass the vetting process.

Reason for sale

The owners are moving abroad.
