Operating with four subcontractor crews in the field, this profitable and award-winning fencing Business is a sales, marketing, and project management powerhouse. The Company performs quoting and estimation, installation, and repair services of durable, cost-effective, and premium quality fencing, including vinyl, aluminum, wood, chain link, and SimTek. It is important to note that the Company’s business model is well-suited for flexibility. Its core focus is marketing, quoting success, and project management execution while leaving the installation work to a team of 1099 subcontractors. This leaves the Company unburdened by a large W2 employee base and, therefore, can flex up and down based on circumstances. As a result, the Company fared well during COVID-19 and has quickly ramped up.
For 10+ years, the Company has devoted its attention to customer satisfaction as the driving force for referrals, positive reviews, and an excellent community reputation. With prior experience in the industry, the Owner has capitalized on the gap of technology in the industry, as well as sub-par communication with customers. By communicating on a transparent level and using industry-leading quoting and project management technology, the Company has earned a reputation of being the best in the business.
The Company faces some competitors throughout the geographic area that it serves. However, the Company is clearly differentiated in its use of modern sales, marketing, project management, customer communication tools, and scalable business model.
The Owner is interested in selling the Business because his family has dreamed of starting a farm. However, the Owner is open to staying on for a defined period after the new owner(s) acquires the Business. This will give the new owner(s) ample time to learn and fully transition into the Business.
