Majority of the customers are within the five state area and the company has over 2,000 customers. In addition, this company can grind blades to fit all applications.
The owner’s responsibility is basically handling the city desk. The company currently employs 5 full time and 1 part time employees that work in the plant. The employees are paid between $15 & $30 per hour. Majority of the employees have been with the company for a long time. The business lacks sales and marketing and the web site needs upgrading (need to be able to order product on the web site.
This company is very desirable because it is business to business, tremendous number of repeat customers (blades need to be sharpened and eventually replaced), the “internet” cannot sharpen blades and tremendous opportunity increase sales.
