Property Information


The seller operates out of a light industrial building. The building was built in 2000 and is 54' x 90' x 14' (4,860 sq.ft.). Inside this building is a shop and cold storage. A 22' x 90' addition was added in 2014. This addition includes an office and more cold storage. In 2017 a 40' x 60' x 16' pole shed was erected which is all cold storage. The pole shed has power and loft storage for parts. The shop area in the original building is heated and cooled with a full bathroom. The office has its own HVAC, bathroom and closets. The buildings are located on a 2.85 acre parcel within city limits. The real estate is available but not included in the list price for the business.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

The potential for growth is a real possibility. This company does virtually no advertising. By adding more staff as well as a qualified project manager... more jobs could be bid, won and scheduled. To actually double the revenue would be a real possibility. Depending on the year, the weather is really the biggest factor in growth and completing the projects. A great time to recruit new staff and ramp things up would be during the down/slow time (Jan. - Mar.).


The competition in this industry is mature. With that said, there is a strong barrier to entry due to bonding and state requirements which make it difficult for new startup companies to enter the marketplace.

Reason for selling:

The seller would like to scale back and transition more towards retirement.

Support & Training:

Will train for 4 weeks @ no cost A buyer should be coachable, trainable and one who does not want to reinvent the wheel. Industry knowledge and/or prior experience will be helpful but not required as everything can be taught. This business has a list of different licenses, registrations, permits, etc. available upon request for qualified buyers to review.
