BUSINESS DESCRIPTION
Specialist Architectural Metalwork Services Company
Specialising in the restoration of period metalwork to important listed properties
Ref. IT092
Location : South Wales
Asking Price : £450,000 Inc. Net Assets
The business is an established, highly regarded and profitable company which has been in business for over 24 years and has worked very hard at establishing itself as a specialised provider within the marketplace. It is particularly associated with providing high levels of workmanship at a competitive price, but above all, for its reliability and responsiveness to the requirements of its customers.
Clients and customers include property management companies with responsibility for private estates, architects, specifiers and main contractors for large government and other institutions requiring understanding, sensitivity and care in providing solutions to complex restorations issues.
Projects range in size from just a few items to the longer term that includes more than 400 individual articles but it is often the complexity that drives value in these matters and not the volume since there is much skill in first assessing the requirement and then making critical choices concerning the balance between restoring what remains with replicating what is too damaged to be restored and at the same time maintain the historical integrity of all metalwork.
The business is kept very busy running its operation from two modern premises that include a workshop, storage & very well appointed offices in South Wales from which it services clients and customers all over the UK.
With a strong history in the building sector and understanding what can and can’t be done, the right solution is provided for every client – whether that be a single remedial treatment, or fulfilling the requirements of an entire property with a much higher order value. Clients will sometimes have more than one property and some of these will be of historic significance and listed status.
The strengths of this company include its expansive technical knowledge and its practical expertise. All work is undertaken by directly employed, qualified and highly experienced teams, which also helps to create a strong trading base.

Market / Competition / Non-Competition Agreements
The business has an excellent company website that comprehensively and attractively presents the high quality services on offer.
