Property Information


The business operates out of an 1,800 square foot, stand alone shop. It is a metal building on 0.70 acres. The property/shop is owned by the seller. It is not part of this transaction, but the owner would consider leasing it. Although the seller does not pay rent, annual rent of $6,000, utilities, taxes, insurance and repair costs are included as expenses in the valuation of the business. The customers never visit the shop, so it can easily be relocated.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

The business owner has turned down additional business as he "makes a comfortable living without expanding". The competition is limited and the territory can be expanded beyond the 200 mile boundaries currently set. The business recently increased the billing rate 3.8% and could have increased more as they are still below the competition.


There are few competitors in this niche industry. The owner actually turns down business because he is comfortable with his current revenue. The competitors he does have charge more for their services.

Reason for selling:

Owner is retiring.

Support & Training:

The business repairs, does preventive maintenance, certifications and warranty work on Minus 80 refrigerators and ultra low temperature (ULT) freezers. Business licenses are required in order to do work in some of the cities & counties. A 4 day class with Thermo Fisher is required for certification to work on their equipment.
