Unique Green Innovation, Import And Online Retail Business For Sale

Malvern, Worcestershire
Asking Price:
£50K - £100K
Net Profit:
Under £50K

A Patented solution to the problem of drying clothes outdoors without using energy. Seen on Dragons’ Den, established 10 years, thousands sold. Can be run from a computer and rented unit but investment will increase turnover dramatically. Bespoke secure website is optimised for mobile and desktop viewing and receives many hits from all over the world.

This business is in a monopoly position with no real competition. It aims to save energy and pollution caused by the use of tumble dryers, or from drying indoors where laundry additionally causes damp. Damp can obviously be a health issue for many people. It protects the user’s laundry from airborne pollution and bird mess in addition to just keeping the clothes dry if a surprise shower catches you out.

The business holds awards for Best Product and is hailed by Kevin McLeod as a Green Hero for its sustainability and rapid payback when compared with the Tumble Dryer – as little as 6 months.
The invention is a fabric cover to attach to a rotary airer turning it into an umbrella above the laundry. Hundreds of testimonials attest to its effectiveness, and sometimes life changing potential. Working mums particularly like it for the ability to “hang and forget it” instead of “hang and hope” so that they can go to work in the knowledge that their wash will not be ruined on their return.

The opportunity is to buy a controlling share of the company. Patents granted in UK, Europe and USA but sales are mainly in the UK and Ireland due to lack of investment capital. Do you have the contacts and capital to drop-ship outside the UK? Then this is a fabulous opportunity.

Property information


Online, administer from anywhere.

Premises Details:

Home office plus rented lockup unit

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

As described earlier, the lack of capital has prevented expansion into lucrative markets where our patent protects our monopoly, e.g. the USA, Germany, France, Holland etc. It has also meant that we are not able to advertise effectively in our home markets of UK and Ireland.

Competition / Market:

A few competitors have tried and failed to introduce a workable product but we are only aware of one which is still in business but selling off old stock. This year Leifheit are introducing a similar product but at twice the price that we charge, so is unlikely to sell many units.

Reasons for selling:


Trading hours:

Online 24/7 operation, Mon-Sat, 9.00 – 5.00 Mon-Fri business working hours
