BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Blemkleen (NW) Ltd, this unique business has been in operation for more than 20 years and is a cost effective service to scaffolding contractors, for the refurbishment of unserviceable scaffold couplers, form work accessories and associated items. All this is done on the contractors own premises using a purpose built mobile workshop.
 
The system has been independently verified to ensure that any cleaning methods, anti-corrosion coatings and lubricant used are of suitable quality, and that all fittings passing through the system are returned to clients in full working order.
 
Our client developed the system in the early 1980s and has operated the system since then. Only now has our client decided to sell the goodwill and assets of the business due to his desire for a well-earned retirement. This is a genuine retirement disposal. Currently the business is run at a pace to suit our client, generating a turnover in the region of £140,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 45%.
 
The system is unique and is carried out using a fully equipped mobile workshop and the refurbishment is carried out on the customer’s premises. This cuts out the need for the physical and costly transportation of fittings to and from a repair depot elsewhere.
 
The three stage process developed by Blemkleen is designed to thoroughly clean the scaffolding fittings, improve their resistance to corrosion and ensure all parts are in full working order. The three stage process comprises of:
 
• Automatic Blast Cleaning
• Anti-Corrosion Coating
• Freeing and Lubrication of all moving parts
 
We feel the business has huge scope to increase the turnover as it is currently run at a pace to suit our client due to impending retirement. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving business to the next level; therefore early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended.
