Manufacture of Performance After Market Auto Parts
•Broad Product Lines and Sales Channels: The Company focuses on manufacturing and distributing various automotive mounts, bushings, axles, and other related accessories, focusing on imported vehicles. Specifically, during 2015, approximately 57% of sales was generated from wholesale transactions, and 43% from direct retail sales and job shop work. Wholesalers sell the company's products to mechanics, smaller distributors, retail outfits, and on Amazon. In addition, the company has the largest selection of aftermarket mounts (as compared to any other competitor).
•Unique Designs: The Company has developed a unique and proprietary tapered bushing design which reduce vibration for improved performance as well as longevity. Competitors in the industry have unsuccessfully tried to duplicate this exclusive design, which might qualify for a patent. In addition, steel and billet product lines are available, as well as customized finishes. Overall, the company's products (steel and billet) are differentiated by the construction, strength, application, aesthetics, and performance/function. Their competitive advantage is not only differentiation but also pricing and delivery speed.
•Automotive Applications: The company's products are primarily targeted at imported vehicles, including Honda, Acura, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Lotus, and other vehicles. Significant growth opportunity exists within the domestic vehicle market.
•Excess Facility and Equipment Capacity: The Company operates from a 10,000-square foot facility (with an additional 10,000-square foot yard), and has the latest machines, test equipment, and custom software. The fair market value of equipment is approximately $1.4 million, and currently utilizes only 30% to 40% of equipment capacity; significant growth could be achieved with minimal capital expenditure requirements.
The buyers are a Private Equity Group with automotive experience and
background who see this as an opportunity to grow the business into a
major player in the automotive after market.
The Sellers, two partners, have been running the business for over 10
years and have increased revenues every single year. One partner is exiting
to other ventures and the other partner is staying on with the new entity.
This transaction is scheduled to close the last week in July, 2016
