Business Overview:

This 28-year old California corporation, an independent wholesale distributor of industrial rubber hose, couplings, conveyor belting, expansion joints, sheet rubber, and many other rubber products, located in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area, close to Silicon Valley, conveniently adjacent to Interstate 80, is for sale for the first time in its long, successful history. Loyal, long-time customers have been cultivated mainly through many, many years of personal sales calls and extensive space advertising, in industries such as construction, manufacturing, mining, wastewater treatment, recycling, and in federal, state, county, and municipal government. In addition, internet exposure to potential customers is provided by a company-controlled web site. This is a business-to-business enterprise; customers are typically end- users or resellers.

The current active client list consists of 200 + customers. About 40 - 50% of sales are drop-shipped, while some orders require fabrication (cutting hose to size and attaching couplings). Gross sales average $600 - $700,000 plus per year, gross margin averages 40% +/-, with a net to owner at 10% +/-. This very well-run business is owned by an MBA who founded the company in 1989, and now is semi-retired and only works on-site three days a week. This business, therefore, has an enormous potential upside. Many blanket purchase agreements are in place, and a large portion of business is transacted over the Internet, including receipt of purchase orders, sending of invoices, wire transfer payment receipts, and credit cards receipts. Accounting is farmed out so all financial statements are timely and accurate. Asking price is $199,00, plus inventory. Owner may carry a portion to a qualified buyer.

For further information on this very profitable distribution company, an executed nondisclosure agreement will need to be on file, available by emailing the listing agent before calling, please.
