Expansion Potential
The business currently operates on a local scale (10 miles radius) but there is no reason why it cannot further develop its presence in the region and beyond should a new owner so require.

There are also good opportunities to branch out further into the commercial sector should a new owner so wish. The housing sector is strong at present and large housing developments in the area are under construction and planned for the future. This business is ideally positioned to service this growing market moving forward as it already has the connections, accreditations and approvals in place and could be scaled up to exploit the many opportunities at its disposal.
