Construction Management in Pennsylvania with Diverse Client Base
Owners will stay on board for 3-5 years!
The owners of this Southeastern Pennsylvania Construction Management company will stay on board for 3-5 years! Well-established for over 40 years, they serve a diverse customer base covering an array of industries. Typically, they have healthcare projects running, with three individuals on staff who are certified healthcare constructors. They work within several general industrial markets, such as the food industry, with clients in snack food, dairy, and meat production, as well as industrial clients in various other production facilities. In addition to that core work, they serve general commercial business needs, including office and retail space. They offer pre-construction services (site analysis/selection, project budget development, project planning & scheduling, land development coordination, etc.), along with complete construction management services, and post-occupancy follow-up and maintenance contracts, making sure each project is guided from beginning to end. Tracking approximately 400 projects per year, a large portion of their business is from repeat clients, generally over 60% annually, with some customers having 25-year tenure with the company.
The company’s staff works out of a leased 26,000 sq. foot industrial building, which includes 18,500 sq. ft. of warehouse, storage, and woodshop area. Along with the 2 owners, who oversee daily operations, office management, and accounting, the team consists of 5 Project Managers and 17 full-time office staff, field employees, and carpenters. 18 trucks, 4 passenger vehicles, and a skid loader make up $760k in assets.
Priced at $3,550,000, this business is in a prime position for growth. Increasing advertising would capture more market share and would expand this company’s footprint far and wide. A 12.5% down payment of $443,750 returns $479,252 in the first year after debt payments – a 108% return on investment!
