This pottery manufacturing and decoration business in South East England is now available for sale
We are in the pottery printing and decoration industry and this business can be located anywhere. We serve the whole of the UK from our current premises in the beautiful rural South-East (the coast is just a 10-minute drive away!) and have no competition within 100 miles of us.
The success of our business is a result of the quality product we supply, our reliability, and the much appreciated customer service we deliver with pride. Our customers trust us and it is important for this to continue. For nearly 30 years this business has excelled in delivering a high-quality printing and decoration service to its customers. The manufacturing, printing and decoration of bespoke mugs and other quality chinaware has built up our reputation for providing a top range product.
We’re specialist printers and decorators of mugs/tableware for businesses, organisations and individuals needing their own brands/designs on chinaware. We buy the glazed whiteware, produce the transfers – screen/digitally printed – and fire them in our own kilns. Having complete control of the in-house process enables us to order whiteware when customers place an order, meaning minimal cash is tied up in stock. By the time an invoice is due, the customer has paid and we deliver the finished printed product.
There are very few companies offering the quality and service we provide in mugs and chinaware decoration. We make sure customers are kept informed and we deliver when we say we will deliver. Our website is our main advertising medium and is both mobile phone and tablet friendly. Our customers always pay on time; we ensure we have no invoices outstanding more than 30 days. We pay our suppliers on time (if not before) ensuring goodwill when orders are urgent.
We receive plenty of unsolicited positive feedback from customers, as well as a great deal of return custom. Some comments can be found on our website and we have Google reviews, again totally unsolicited.
Our reactive website, as well as customer recommendations, brings in more than enough business. For new owners there are many untapped avenues such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, as well as Amazon, eBay and Pinterest etc. to explore. Also, there are promotion opportunities at exhibitions such as 'Business to Business', 'The Spring Fair' and 'Top Drawer'. We’ve had huge success selling direct to the public at town/county shows and well-chosen Christmas markets; many customised orders are achieved from chance encounters at fairs.
As new owners, you will have everything you need to run the business including digital ceramic printers, screen printing facility, 4 industrial kilns, Apple Mac computers and appropriate licensed software for design and running the business, plus office furniture, etc.

South-East England on the Sussex-Kent borders
Ample car parking and easy in/out access.
Potential expansion through social media, as well as the usual markets and fairs.
We have little competition in the ceramics industry. Big Retailers order and ship from factories around the world e.g. China, Indonesia. Companies operating in the UK are generally offering mugs only. In contrast we offer a range of china mugs and other products that we can customise to order.
Trading hours: Monday to Friday 9.00 to 17.00 plus a few weekends at shows
You’ll be taught every aspect of the business you’re unfamiliar with including introductions to customers, suppliers and technical support network. If the business remains local, we can be available for support after handover.
