About the Business:

This business for sale operates from the Sunshine Coast to the Southside of Brisbane. All work undertaken is carried out using well maintained equipment.

There are more growth suburbs on the Sunshine Coast than any other local government area in Australia. The region has evolved beyond its tourism tag. It is transitioning to becoming a well-rounded regional economy and it is happening largely through infrastructure spending, some of which is creating new industries.

The Sunshine Coast University and the $2 billion University Hospital are examples of regional game-changers. There are these whole new industries bringing lots of new people to the Sunshine Coast and many of them earning good money.

The Kawana precinct between Maroochydore and Caloundra will see demand from both owner/ occupiers and tenants’ ramp up the construction industry, while the airport expansions and the Maroochydore CBD renewal have driven up prices allowing further construction. This strong growth will have a run on effect for businesses involved in building, construction and related services such as this scaffolding business.

History:

Established 10 years ago by two brothers, although only one of the brothers is currently working in the business.

Initially they started with some painted steel kwikstage scaffolding which accounts for approximately 30% of the inventory. They then grew the inventory using galvanised scaffolding.

The business has grown strong relationships with five main builders, the biggest of which built 50 in a project, this builder alone has ongoing work for 2 years.

The owner is hands on attending every site each day. He is generally finished by noon.

Sale Price:

$595,000 Includes assets with cost price of $450,000
