PROFITABLE AUSTRALIAN MATERIALS HANDLING COMPANY FOR SALE

11-09-2019

An opportunity has arisen to purchase a well-established Australian company with substantial experience, a strong reputation and ongoing contracts in materials handling, manufacturing and warehousing.

The technology-led company is profitable, and has a consistent annual turnover in the region of $5 million. There is a fully equipped design and manufacturing facility in Sydney with a highly skilled and motivated workforce.

There is a further technical sales office in Melbourne and an established sales operation covering all Australian cities and regions plus the South Pacific islands and PNG.

The company has built a strong reputation throughout Australia and the South Pacific for its solution-based design and high-quality manufacturing capabilities.

In addition to its own manufacturing operation, the company has long standing supply agreements with European based manufacturers of high-quality specialised support equipment that enhance its value proposition.

The company’s client list reads like a who’s who of Australian industry from manufacturers, national warehousing and logistics operators to food and beverage processors, and selected parts of the mining sector.

Having built the company to its current size and profitability, the existing directors are looking for fresh challenges in other fields. However, they are fully prepared to work through an agreed handover period to introduce the new management to the company’s technology, its customers and the market.

The company would be a good acquisition for an overseas company wanting to gain a foothold in the Australian materials handling market or for an existing Australian company looking to expand its range of products.

In the first instance, interested parties should contact Scott Filby, Publisher of Industry Update, by email: scott@industryupdate.com.au
