Great opportunity to learn a simple, wholesale manufacturing and distribution business with good cash flow and the opportunity for growth. This business is low cost and can easily be run by one person. The addition of marketing and sales expertise can increase the business. Start small and grow. This 20+ year old business manufactures changeable letter signs; including illuminated, A-frame, open/closed, neon looking, hanging and banners. Most signs have changeable letters. These signs provide businesses with inexpensive, promotional marketing. The typical user is a Main Street business but larger companies also use them for internal messaging. Primary customer is typically the local sign shops not the end user. Current owners have simplified the business model by outsourcing the plastic extrusion process used in making the signs and letters. All sign and letter molds are included in the price of the business. This business can be easily run from any location with less than 2,000 square feet of light industrial space. Typical marketing includes the internet, website, catalogs, and contacting current and past customers. Orders are taken over the phone or internet.
