The core business activity is the provision of fire safety advice and training to a wide range of clients in the private and public sector. Specifically, consultancy services include fire risk assessments and fire safety inspections, emergency evacuation drills, producing fire strategy CAD drawings and representing client interests in negotiations with fire authorities, local authorities, architects and planners etc. Training modules are formulated for all types of commercial and industrial premises and are designed to educate all staff from fire wardens to the general workforce regarding fire risks and fire safety in the workplace.

The business is currently operated from home in the East Sussex area but could be based in any convenient location. Services are provided throughout the UK but mainly in London and the South East. The business has a large database of existing clients including many well-known names and blue-chip companies. As the majority of clients need to be visited once or twice a year, a high proportion of the annual turnover is repeat work meaning that a well-managed transfer of the business should ensure that new owners can benefit from a continuing flow of income from the existing client base.

Trading since 1991, this is a long-established business which is currently owned and run by 3 Directors who carry out most of the client visits. All 3 Directors are now planning to retire and we are advised that their workload could probably be handled by 2 people working full-time provided that they have the required knowledge and expertise in this field. Accounts for the year ended 30th June 2020 show an Annual Turnover of £148,221 and a Net Profit of £90,497 (before amortisation and depreciation). Full financial information will be available on request.

In summary, this is a profitable and professionally run business with the potential for further growth and development under forward-thinking new owners. The business has a very strong foundation with an extensive and valuable list of clients and an excellent reputation. The fact that the business can be operated from home also means that overheads can be kept to a minimum and provides total flexibility in terms of relocation.
