Knife Manufacturer, Motivated Sellers!

This manufacturer would like to sell his blade business in order to relocate to North Carolina where his wife has taken a new job. The company has been developing and producing hand tools and knives for manufacturers, sport and industrial cutlery providers, and the auto glass replacement market for over 40 years. With state of the art equipment, including two CNC blade grinders (which when new, cost $400,000), the company can take any engineering idea and turn it into a blade in a matter of weeks. The owner does have Intellectual Property rights for a handy windshield cut out tool – a favorite for everybody in that particular line of work.

The business employs 3-4 workers depending upon the amount of work, all of whom would be happy to remain under new ownership. Operating out of a 10,000 sf facility, there is extra space to grow the business or sublet and save on rent.

A loyal customer base remits within 30 days and the seller has no issues with receivables or bad debts. Unfortunately, the seller admits he’s under-capitalized to invest in strong marketing efforts to grow the business and exponentially boost revenues.

Although sales have reached as high as $1 million in the past, average sales over the last two years totaled $435,800 with average cash flow of $108,435. The business is priced at $279,000, plus inventory. That represents a modest 2.5X Cash Flow factor … a very under market rate for this niche type of manufacturing business.

Buyer could hit the ground running, and for the right Buyer, Seller will hold meaningful paper. For more information please call.
