Established Oil & Gas Field Hardware and Auto Parts Supply Business that has operated profitably in the same area since the 1950’s; over 60 years. The owner is ready to retire and to place this opportunity in control of a qualified and knowledgeable buyer.
This business has never advertised extensively, but has relied solely upon building a large and dependable repeat customer base via verbal recommendations from satisfied customers. Even today this business still does not have a website!
Revenue for this business dropped sharply starting in 2014, concurrent with a decline in oil and gas field production for the entire industry, but revenue for the most recent year, from 2015 to 2016, declined by only one-third as much as the previous year decline, from 2014 to 2015.
Notwithstanding significant revenue declines for three consecutive years, the business is still profitable and profit margins remain comparable to prior years.
This opportunity can be expanded geographically by implementing new advertising and marketing techniques utilizing the internet. The company's present core customer base is in Texas and the surrounding states. The utilization of new internet advertising and marketing methods and techniques will allow this business to reach active operators in the Oil and Gas Fields of Texas and adjoining states as well as possibly others in more distant locations. Customers seeking a reliable source for Auto Parts can also be reached via internet advertising and marketing techniques as well.
Millions in revenue dollars have been generated by this business in prior years by the owner and a small number of well trained and loyal employees.
This business needs new management versed in the application of today’s internet advertising methods and marketing techniques.
