Established Laser Cutting Manufacturer for Sale!

The Company is a market leader in the Greater Western Michigan region for 5-axis laser cutting and welding services. Laser welding and cutting significantly decreases the time and manpower required to produce many complex parts and delivers extremely high levels of precision, while remaining cost efficient. Most frequently, the Company’s customers are seeking these services for automotive, aerospace parts manufacturing, and processing of hydro-formed, roll-formed, tubular and stamped parts requiring holes, cut-outs and out perimeter trimming, whether it be for prototyping or large production requirements.

Additionally, the Company offers sheet metal fabrication services. The Company is NADCAP and ISO9001 certified and already has a management team in place.

In the owner’s words: “The core competency of the Company in this industry and technology has always been its ability to process 5-Axis products accurately and consistently with minimal start up time and at a competitive price. We work closely with our customers to solve some very challenging problems for many difficult parts. Our fabrication services are becoming ever more specialized in creating delicate and cosmetically appealing products, such as scratch free stainless panels.”

Historically, the Company has performed well and consistently generated strong cash flows. A series of unfortunate events, including the sudden death of a key employee, caused the Company to stumble a bit in 2018. The Company is already well along the process of returning to historical profitability and stability in 2019. Demand for services remains high, and both the laser cutting & welding and metal fabrication departments have potential for growth. Due to the Company’s work within the aerospace and defense industries, the Company operates and is managed with a level of sophistication and excellence that is rarely found in a business of this size.

The Company operates out of 28,000+ sq. ft. leased facility and serves many industries!

The Company obtained a Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraisal in July 2018. The total fair market installed value of the equipment is $669,000.

The main stakeholder in the Company wishes to sell to focus on other business interests. The other minority owner works as the general manager and would like to provide expertise and stay in a management role for the next 8 – 10 years. 

Financial Summary

2019 Projected Revenue: $3,828,000+

Investment Highlights

Committed Leadership  – The Company’s General Manager maintains a minority ownership stake in the Company. His leadership abilities, customer relationships, and industry knowledge are all considerable assets to the Company and its next owner, assuming they would wish for him to stay on post-transaction. Ideally, he would like to stay in a management role for the next 8-10 years. Additionally, the company has a full-time Controller with 27 years of experience.

Core Competency in a Critical Technology – The precision levels and edge quality achieved with laser cutting machines are better than traditional cutting methods, as the laser beam does not wear during the laser cutting process. Laser cutting technology also enables the Company to cut complex shapes without the need for tooling and at a similar or faster speed than other cutting methods. The result is that the Company can save its customers time and money.

Certifications – The Company is both NADCAP Accredited and ISO 9001:2015 Certified. NADCAP is an aerospace and defense industry accreditation that is process specific and considered even more stringent and difficult to obtain than IS09001. In addition to improving the Company’s reliability and quality, NADCAP accreditation is a powerful sales and marketing tool and opens the Company up to additional markets.

Growth Opportunities

Lean Manufacturing – The Company has been optimized for manufacturing quality and reliability. While the Company works toward efficiency, the Company could benefit from a new owner with lean manufacturing knowledge and experience, or with the resources available to invest in process and plant optimization. This would serve to boost capacity and please customers by reducing lead times. Another option would be hiring a continuous improvement expert.

Insource Additional Capabilities – Many of the jobs that the Company takes on require further machining and finishing after the Company has done its cutting, welding, and/or sheet metal fabrication. Investing in the expansion of manufacturing capabilities of the Company may be an excellent means of unlocking new revenue streams and boosting profitability. Based on the work the Company quotes on and outsources, the following would all be investments worth considering:

  • CNC Machining and Tapping
  • Upgrade from C02 Laser to Fiber Laser
  • Turret Presses
  • Resistance Welder
  • Spot Welder
  • Powder Coating Station
  • Second Press Brake
  • Waterjet

Despite its humble beginning in 1980 as a simple welding repair business in Western Michigan, this Company has grown and evolved over the past two decades into a thriving Company that specializes in a specific type of work. Very few can match this Company’s expertise, reputation and safety record. Direct competition is virtually nonexistent. The result is consistent revenue levels and strong cash flows year after year.

The company has been experiencing recent surges in demand for its services despite never advertising or marketing itself.

Investment Highlights

Extremely Consistent Revenue and Strong Cash Flow – The Company’s owner has grown the Company to an optimal size for him – it has consistently generated over half a million in earnings and is still within his ability to effectively manage it. The Company is presently experiencing additional surges in demand with profits following, illustrating a growing need for its unique service offering. 

Newer Equipment and Vehicles – Reinvestment is a priority at the Company. The Company’s fleet of vehicles, equipment, and tools are diligently maintained and upgraded as required.

Always Busy – The Company consistently has a steady stream of new projects waiting.

Growth Opportunities

Aging Infrastructure Nationwide – Infrastructure throughout the United States is in a sorry state. Recently, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave U.S. infrastructure a grade of D+. The steady improvement of the economy and a growing housing market are providing municipalities with more money to allocate to infrastructure investment, upon which this Company can capitalize.

Expanding into New Geographies – Growth opportunities in dense metropolitan places such as the greater Chicago area are immense. The Company consistently works in this region but there are many more opportunities available there (as well as within the entire state of Illinois).

No Sales of Marketing Effort Whatsoever – Operating entirely by word-of-mouth, the Company does not even have a website, nor has it done any sales or marketing initiatives or employ any sales people. Even a modest investment in these areas would likely yield significant results.
