Filtration Systems Business With Continued Consultancy For Sale

Leeds, West Yorkshire
Asking Price:
£50,000 Furniture / Fixtures included
Net Profit:

The business builds vertical flow reedbed filtration systems as a method of waste water treatment for remote and off grid industrial and domestic pollution.

The vertical flow design is not available on the internet. For example a household vertical flow system will reduce ammonia, nitrates, phosphates, minerals and metals by 95 to 99%. A horizontal flow reedbed will reduce pollutants by 70% only.

So vertical flow reedbeds are smaller and more efficient. There is no standing water and therefore no smell. The idea of continued consultancy is to help the buyer continue to provide the best designs for every system.

Package treatment systems do not produce higher outflow quality, they cost far more to buy and install, and once their system is off loaded from the delivery truck, the responsibility of the system working becomes that of the customer. When things go wrong, the customer finds they are on their own. The package treatment sales people are sales people and not the scientist who developed their system.

For sale is the company, my van, and the website. The website has been on page 1 of google searches for reedbed filtration since 1999. This web site generates on average £100,000 of sales each year. Sometimes £80,000, sometimes £120,000.
We have 1 customer with an order for £160,000 which could be installed in the next couple of years.
We have a number of other customers waiting until springtime to build their systems.
Any word of mouth requests can be passed on to the new owner.

The price would be £50,000 plus an annual consultancy fee of £1000 a month, over 4 years.

Reedbed prices are half those of alternative and substitute systems. The amount of work completed in the last 2 years could have been double. What it needs it someone of youth and vigour

Ideal business to work throughout the UK, and beyond.
