Business Overview

Vexus is exclusively retained to find a purchaser for this market leading and specialist abrasive & cutting tool manufacturing business.

For over 47 years, our client has provided high quality and specialist tooling to a number of long term clients based in the UK and overseas. The customer base consists of a widely diversified range of industries, using a multitude of different work materials, giving our client a broad understanding of how their specialist tooling can benefit many sectors.

The business continues to deliver a range of tools and services to meet their clients’ specific needs and we have received instructions to find an acquirer who can take this long established business forward.

“Specialist UK tooling manufacturer since 1968”

As a leading manufacturer and supplier of high quality, specialist abrasive tooling, the business employs 9 staff and is run on a day to day basis by the existing management. The business operates out of leased premises of approx. 7,000 Sq. ft. and is based in England.

From the very beginning, our client has always maintained the highest standards in the quality and consistency of their products. Their qualification in the UK Quality Management Standard BS5750 Part 2 was awarded on first application in 1992, followed by the updated Quality Standards ISO9002 in 1994, ISO9001 in 2000 and ISO9001:2008 in 2008 at the first reviews.

Our client seeks the outright sale of the business. Ideally the purchaser will be an existing engineering or tooling manufacturer with the appropriate expertise and synergies to take this business forward and to the next level. The acquisition of this business offers a unique opportunity to enter or expand within this specialist tooling manufacturing sector.

Reason for Sale

The business has been operated by our clients since 1968. Our client is now planning for full retirement and a complete exit from the business.

A handover period will be provided for a duration to be agreed.
