Pool construction and maintenance company, costa del sol, spain
price: €725,000.00 ( seven hundred and twenty five thousand euros)
This family owned business has been brought to the market place by the owners, who now after some 34 years, wish to retire here on the Costa del Sol. This profitable and reputable Spanish limited company is well established servicing more then 120 (150 in the summer months) clients for regular contracted Swimming Pool Maintenance which includes a good number of community pools. In addition, they provide a full construction service for new pools from initial design to finished product. This business offers a new owner the opportunity to expand and grow the business. The owners recognise this opportunity themselves, but admit they do not have the desire to undertake this strategy themselves. They do not have a next generation of family, which under normal circumstances would inherit this challenge and responsibility. The following is a summary of the business factors:-
Growth has been achieved, year on year, with sales turnover in 2018 of over 400.000 Euros with good profit margins. The backbone of the business are the contracted clients who guarantee a set level of monthly income. The full financials can be discussed further directly with the owners on Provision of Proof of Funds.
Market Size and Market Share.
Market size is almost unlimited and the Market Share continues to grow, with ongoing community and residential growth throughout the Costa del Sol. This business is the market leader within the Ex-Pat community, with predominantly British and Scandinavian clients. There is ample opportunity for the business to grow in this niche market. There is little threat of new entrants into the market place, due to the popular reputation and long existence of the business and the prohibitive start up costs. Previous new entrants have exited the market quickly. Market seasonality exists, but only moderately affecting the business.
