The current owner started the business in the late 1960’s with a family member. They’ve been making products for the U.S. Government for more than 40 years. The business is located in Chicago.

They have approximately $1,400,000 in manufacturing machinery and office equipment. The equipment includes several CNC machines and a plating machine. They do spinning in-house, while others usually out source it, which leads to higher costs and very little control over quality. They also have their own dies for stamping and they treat their own water waste with in-house pollution remediation equipment.

The average annual cash flow for the last 3 years was $968,534.00 and the average gross annual sales were $3,192,640. Payroll runs about $20,000 per week, on average and the current owner works 4 days per week or about 40 hours per week.

As with most businesses, there are areas of opportunity. The business has a long history, so the website is dated & doesn’t really attract much traffic and has very little information. Adding pictures of finished products and much more detailed information would help increase traffic to the website and potentially attract more customers. They also don’t currently seek out new potential customers, so focusing on that would clearly help increase sales. They have been very content with the sales they’ve realized, as they have been very consistent. Other than the website, they don’t do any advertising.

While many manufacturing businesses run 2 or 3 shifts per day, This Manufacturing business only runs one shift per day. This is a big area of opportunity to grow sales and increase profits.
