Profitable & Diversified Metal Fabricating and Machining Company For Sale

Established in West Michigan over a decade ago, this Company assists businesses throughout the region in the development and manufacturing of fabricated metal solutions, machined parts, and assemblies. The sellers, who typically work thirty to thirty-five hours per week, refer to the Company as a “Money Making Machine” and rightfully so. However, instead of simply pulling money out of the business, they have re-invested in equipment and expansion to help ensure the Company’s long-term success.

While the Company specializes in sheet metal fabrication, its wide array of internal equipment and capabilities enable it to solve numerous and complex manufacturing challenges for its large and ever-growing customer base. These customers include manufacturers in the furniture, industrial technologies, lighting, and OEM industries.

This is a very profitable and stable business, with diversified and long-standing customers and loyal, reliable employees. Both characteristics are the direct result of the Company’s unwavering commitment to ethical behavior and excellence.

The sellers have reached retirement age, but are open to staying on with the Company post-transaction to assist with the transfer of knowledge and relationships.

Financial Overview

2017 Revenue: $1,500,553

2017 Cash Flow: $543,637

 

This is a very profitable and stable business, with diversified and long-standing customers and loyal, reliable employees.

Investment Highlights

Substantial and Strategic Reinvestment
Since 2010, the Company has invested nearly $1M in an expansion, equipment purchases, and upgrades. The Company is perfectly positioned for continued growth and success with minimal investment.

Total Customer Solution is a Competitive Advantage
The company sets itself apart from the competition by offering a suite of customer solutions, from design through finished products/assemblies. Additionally, the Company offers design/engineering support and its manufacturing capabilities include sheet metal and machining, which few competitors in the area offer to the extent that the Company does.

Broad, Diverse, and Loyal Customer-base
The Company’s customer base is comprised of over 300+ customers from diverse industries. Its top four customers (which comprise 65% of total revenue) have all been doing business with the Company for at least 10 years.

Proven Sales Reps
Although sales reps are rare among small manufacturers in West Michigan, the Company has nurtured several loyal reps that consistently send high-margin work to the Company. Two of these sales reps are from outside of the West Michigan region, adding geographic diversity to the Company’s customer-base.

Since 2010, the Company has invested nearly $1M in an expansion, equipment purchases, and upgrades. The Company is perfectly positioned for continued growth and success with no/minimal investment.

Growth Opportunities

Invest in Turret Press
Acquiring a turret press (low-cost metal punching instead of laser cutting) would help the Company go after some “cost sensitive” customers. The facility could be expanded to accommodate such a piece of equipment.

Pursue Additional Complex Work
Go after more business that involves not only sheet metal fab but also machined parts to be assembled/welded. This business is very profitable because not many fabricators in the area can do it in a timely manner with a sufficient level of quality.

Custom One-off Projects
Local furniture companies outsource their work for trade show booths and prototype development. With the addition of the right person, this could become a nice opportunity/niche for growth.

Financial Performance

12/31/2017 Revenue: $10,552,483

12/31/2017 Adj. EBITDA: $1,825,492

Investment Highlights

Recession Resistant Business Model – Historically, the Company has performed well during economic downturns.

During the Great Recession of 2009, the Company operated profitably and hired excellent employees.

Repeat Customers – The Company’s extensive parking lot customer base requires maintenance on average every 2-3 years. This ensures, with a high degree of confidence, that the Company will continue to have repeat business indefinitely.

Excellent Employee Pool – Many of the company’s employees have been with the company for 15-30 years. This provides a new owner with a very strong support system. The Company conducts CDL training internally. While its competitors have laborers and drivers, this Company has laborers who also drive providing the company with a flexible, competitive advantage.

Limited Competition – This Company is the dominant maintenance business in the region. Although there are other smaller companies that offer similar services, many of them are actual or potential buyers of the Company’s products.

Growth Opportunities

Utilize and Integrate Technology – Admittedly, the Company has been slow to integrate technology and software into the operations, sales, and marketing functions of the business. A Customer Relationship Management system, an Enterprise Resource Planning system, job tracking system, and employee management system are all potential investments that could drive greater efficiencies. Currently, the Company does not do any online marketing. Investments in this area may also provide additional growth opportunities.
