We invite offers for this thriving family-run 60-year-old metal recycling business complete with associated freehold land.
Established in the 1960s, the business has grown a loyal customer base and supply chain, providing a sustained annual turnover in excess of seven figures. The business holds all relevant environmental, health and safety certifications to handle ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Over the years, the business has invested wisely in equipment and currently provides clients with turnkey solutions for their waste management needs through roll-on-off collection, processing, and delivery with scope for further management opportunities. While the throughput handled by the founder is currently up to 150 tonnes per month, the current equipment and land can handle more than double that. Pair the capabilities of the yard with the strategic location, close to major road, rail, and seaport arteries, and the potential for substantial growth is plain to see.
The only reason this business is on the market is due to the owners wanting to retirement.
Due to the age of the owners, they have maintained a steady level of business that is comfortable for them to manage while freely admitting there is a lot more business in their operational radius to more than double turnover.
A potential growth plan showing a conservative 19% increase in turnover, where that could come from and how to achieve it in the first twelve months of new ownership, has been developed and will be provided to suitable potential buyers.
