ANIMAL FEEDS, HEALTH PRODUCTS AND AGRICULTURAL SUPPLIES in West Yorkshire for Sale.
A unique opportunity to acquire a well-known and highly regarded animal and farm supplies business and property which was established in the 1960’s and has been under the same ownership for the last 35 years. From its base in West Yorkshire, the business supplies many surrounding rural farming communities around the Aire, Wharfe and Ribble valleys and the Yorkshire Dales.
Offering an extensive range of agricultural supplies and also specialising in animal feed, feed supplements and animal health products, the business is experiencing increasing sales turnover of late. Profit and loss accounts show sales approaching £400,000 (excluding VAT) per annum and return healthy net profits to the owner. There is a lot of potential to develop other opportunities within the agricultural sector, opportunities the current owner is aware of, but feels these are new and exciting possibilities for more ambitious and enterprising new owners.
Standing in its own grounds of 0.165 of an acre (approximately 7,192 sq ft) the business operates from large, brick built premises incorporating a ground floor, walk around sales floor with racking displaying goods, a sales counter and back office, holding areas for large item storage, staff WC and a loading area. Forecourt and customer car park. Steps to the first floor goods stores. In addition to the business premises, there is a large, predominantly flat, plot of land. This is not used by the business, but has obvious development potential for new owners.
Our client is ready for change, after dedicating most of his adult working life to the business, and it is for this reason alone that he now wishes to sell the business and property as a whole. Our client may consider selling the business goodwill, trading name or company and its intellectual property, plus stock at cost valuation, should a potential buyer wish to relocate the business to other premises, or bolt it on to an already existing business. Business and property is realistically priced and we seek offers in the region of £300,000, to include the buildings and land.
