Somerset-based aftermarket distributor Rob Hunter is up for sale. The agent, Intelligent Business Transfer (IBT), describes the company as “a well-run and profitable motorcycle parts wholesaler that has developed a superb reputation within the industry”.
Founded in 1969 and now employing 33 staff, Rob Hunter had an annual turnover of £4m in most recently filed accounts and is said to pull in up to £100,000 per week during busy periods. It generated gross margins of 29.4% overall and an actual net profit of £70,000. But, according to IBT’s sales pitch: “This can be adjusted to around £400,000 with fair add-backs.”
Logistical dominance in the southern counties offers a successful platform to be developed, IBT suggests, with scope to expand in the online and e-commerce sector, as well as extending distributive operations into Northern England.
