ACQUISITION OPPORTUNITY: Warehouse and storage equipment

An opportunity to acquire a long established and growing design and installation company supplying large scale warehouse and storage equipment internationally.

Portunus has established itself as a UK based leading provider of industrial and commercial warehousing solutions, equipment and systems with key accounts in Central Asia, Africa and the Caribbean.

The business is a long established respected & sought after design & installation specialist using products from leading UK manufacturers including Dexion, Troax, Stodex Mezzanine floors, Link & Storax mobile systems.

Many years experience of exporting & installing into overseas sites is available to develop existing products & customer relationships further as well as allowing for additional product ranges to be introduced.

Particular success has been achieved in supplying oil, gas, & mining sectors in both Central Asia & Africa.

The company is highly regarded by suppliers & customers alike with strong trading relationships & repeat orders in many areas.

The company does not have any debt & with modest investment could achieve substantial sales & profit growth.

Companies with limited ,or no, exporting experience could benefit from fast growing markets overseas, particularly in Africa, where UK products are very welcome & often at better margins than available in the UK.

Major commercial operations ranging from:

  • Tea and coffee producers
  • International publishers
  • Pharmaceutical companies

Markets that have been particularly successful include:

  • Oil and Gas – BP, Shell, Total, Exxon, Schumlerger and TCO
