FOR SALE - SOUTH WEST SAW MILL
IMPRESSIVE SOUTHWEST SAW MILLING AND PRODUCTION ENTERPRISE - Sold as a going concern.
This business was first established in 1981 and has been under the one ownership for the last 36 years. The owners of this highly profitable timber milling and processing operation have grown the business from humble beginnings. Initially the business supplied to local customers, but over the years as the business gathered momentum they developed national and international markets. The business operates from two locations. The timber logs are milled and kiln dried at the first location and then the dried timber product is transported to the value adding and distribution centre less than 5km away. Here the dried timber is machined into various products, mainly flooring, decking, furniture grade timber, skirting and mouldings. From here the product is shipped to customers around Australia and Internationally.
The business runs with a long term loyal workforce of dedicated staff that are committed to the business and their jobs. The business has long term Government quotas assuring an ongoing supply of logs that are delivered to the timber mill. Logs are also sourced from private land owners.
Having created a very successful operation, the owners are now ready to enjoy the next phase of their life and as such, have put the business on the market at the very realistic price of $5,000,000. By the nature of the business, a high proportion of the asking price is in stock that is held on hand as it goes through the production phase prior to consignment. The total asking price is therefore made up of a high stock component which is in excess of $2,000,000. The balance of the asking price is made up of considerable plant and equipment which is specific to this type of business along with the excellent goodwill that this business enjoys.
This business holds prominence in the type of products that it supplies and sells. As the business has grown, the owners have developed long term clients and have ongoing long term orders and contracts in place. The barriers to entry for this type of business are very high, so a good level of security from competition is enjoyed by the business.
It is arguably the case that a business prospect of this type and scale is something that will not be available often and as such this is a fantastic opportunity for any interested buyer looking to purchase an established highly profitable enterprise.
