About the Business
An attractive investment:
* Turnover: $3m (5 year average)
* Investment required: $2m
* Plant & Equipment value: $1.5m
* Recently upgraded and meticulously maintained equipment
* Ability to relocate the business to a location of choice
* Excellent relationships and repeat work
The business is one of the few general hire earthmovers who own their own fleet, and directly employ the operators, although more capital-intensive it gives the business a higher degree of control over service delivery, and therefore a higher quality of service, for which they can charge a premium, relative to their competitors.
The business services primarily commercial customers including local and interstate builders, landscapers, plumbers, concreters and civil contractors. Clients also include cross-hire and subcontract work with other local earthmovers.
The business has a large number of distinct, repeat clients with a very diversified client base. The business is not heavily dependent on a single or concentrated small group of clients with no client representing more than 10% of the business's turnover.
Owned and operated by the current owners for over 25 years
