Business Description

Export potential and Relocatable. Manufacturer and engineering that is established on 1950.

Bespoke pedestrian access controlled turnstiles and gates manufacturer since 1965. Athletic Starting blocks. Car turntables. The bespoke turnstile products are directed at the commercial sector and the car turntables to the domestic and commercial sector. A sale split between the two products (turnstiles and car turntables) may be considered.

No known other comprehensive niche product range manufacturer in NZ and Australia. Would suit start up business or home based or existing engineering company wishing to expand its product range. As most sales are done through our website (currently 1st page Google) or by telephone, the business is relocatable. Some exports have been made to China and the Pacific Basin, an Australian base/agent connection would be advantageous for exports. Sales should benefit from some marketing expertise.

As the sale consists mainly of intellectual property including design registrations in NZ and Australia, product copyright, website (currently first page Google) domain names, and car the Ilex brand and Logo, workshop drawings with accompanying quantity lists and product data and some assembly jigs etc. Most of the expensive, unchargeable work has been done with prior R&D and product evolution. The products have been designed for easy installation, quick on- site adjustments with basic tools and very low to no maintenance. Some of the products have been recently designed and may require final detail refinements The smaller products are currently manufactured in a 64 square meter workshop with sheet metal and the larger products contracted out to other companies.

Most products have a stainless steel finish with machined parts in mild and high tensile steel. The electronic components are 12V and 24Vdc systems. There are various procedures used with Arc, MIG and TIG welding, turning and milling, sheet metal and tube bending. Minimal stocks are held. We currently don’t offer installation of any of our products but that could alter with a new owner.

The car turntable is newly designed and requires building and proving. Manufacture is largely associated with the metal fabrication sector. The NZ and Australian registered design is novel by being able to be delivered in a crate and mounted on top of new or existing concrete driveways. Simply designed to enable locally sourced engineers or carpenters to make easy installations. We have had many inquiries from property developers, architects, car sales etc in NZ and Australia and this product shows good sales potential. Optional purchase of existing machinery. No property or leases are included in the sale unless the current location is included. The owner is available for a limited time for technical advice.

Sale due to intended retirement.
