Manufacturing Businesses for Sale

  • Primary Category: Commercial Machinery & Industrial Businesses for Sale

Business and Building Offered

This company has received numerous patents and has been manufacturing specialized industrial products for scientific and governmental agencies for over 65 years. The majority of products manufactured are commonly considered to be the “Gold Standard” for design, manufacturing and functional quality. Specialized processes the company performs have largely not been replicable anywhere in the world. The owner cites technological excellence, the diverse product line, and the long tenured, knowledgeable employees as the major elements of the companies successful operating history.

The company manufactures to stock and to order. The major product lines are sold through distributors with whom the company has long standing distribution/rep agreements with.

There is a potential for growth, both domestically and internationally, via additions of products to existing distribution agreements and via establishment of distribution agreements with international distributors with whom the company is familiar with and has had conversations with. The current obstacle to increasing distribution is that ownership is ready to divest/retire and doesn’t want to incur debt to finance expansion. The company is currently free of debt beyond normal trade accounts payable.

The company employs seven, including one of the owners, who acts as General Manager. The other employees include an Accounting Manager, Accounting Assistant and three factory workers. Since Covid restrictions, the General Manager has been working largely from his home office in Ohio.

The business and the building are owned by two individuals. One of the owners has actively managed the business for the past twenty-two years. The other acquired his interest upon the death of his father. The owner’s first priority of divestment is the preservation of the jobs of the employees who have faithfully served the business. As such, offers will not be accepted for the building only.

The ideal buyer for this business would be a strategic buyer that manufactures complimentary or related industrial products, who can move their operations to this location to leverage the space and debt service of the building.

The CIM will be provided after execution of NDA and Buyer profile which presents potential buyer background, experience and financial capacity to close the transaction.
