Growth & expansion opportunities:

For many years this was a father son business and their thoughts were always to make a good living and maintain a comfortable lifestyle. They were selective in the type of work they accepted and the customers they worked with. They never wanted to get too big, but for a new owner there certainly would be an opportunity to grow the business to the level they would desire. The opportunities for additional work are definitely available. The mere addition of a website and some social media presence alone would be an inexpensive way to gain additional exposure in desired business segments.
