Welding repair and fabricating company
Chicago Ridge, IL
Exceptional opportunity for an aspiring hands-on entrepreneur with a vision to expand on a well established reputation. Notable, small family-owned welding and fabricating shop that has been around for 50 years is going on the market. Since 1963, this profitable company has been well respected and well known in the Chicago land area. Currently the owner and his wife are working the business and both are looking to retire. They specialize in full service portable and in-shop, repair and custom metal fabrication for commercial, residential and industrial clients.
Complete turnkey business with tons of equipment, inventory and many happy current and repeat customers to carry on and build for the future. We believe this business would make an excellent acquisition for an entrepreneur or similar-type business looking to add additional equipment to their existing facility while picking up a few strong customers. Diversified and concentrated client base with excellent customer loyalty. The company has been successful in obtaining repeat work from these clients happy to deal with a firm that is competitive yet reliable and flexible enough to work within time constraints.
They do both light and heavy fabrication and specialty work. The majority of their work is fabricating and welding with steel, aluminum & stainless steal although they do work occasionally with cast iron and brass. Their infrastructure allows them to work both in their own shop and to facilitate portable on-site welding. Their mobile welding division gives them the ability to work on job sites that other competitors can’t access. Their in shop facility has a wide array of capabilities with machines and tools to provide general modification and repair work in addition to designing and fabricating just about anything.
CUSTOMERS: Most of the work they currently provide is repair of restaurant equipment, truck and trailers, stairs and handrails, fences and gates, tanks, fixtures, and general welding for building and heavy equipment contractors. Their client base is restaurants, trucking companies, powder coaters, factories, schools and universities, US post office, federal government, park districts and municipalities.
