The Rotorua brand solutions company, Speedy Signs and EmbroidMe Rotorua, which sells innovative signage and personalised corporate clothing, is for sale as a going concern business within leased premises.

ABC business broker Ellen Place says annual earnings of around $214,000 net over the last four years demonstrate the company’s success and the value of services provided.

Place lists a range of factors behind the company’s success.

“Not least, is the strategic location at 1198 Arawa Street. They’re in the heart of the business district, with State Highways 30 and 5 right on the doorstep, giving great access to customers in the wider Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Taupo regions.”

The Speedy Signs premises provides a flexible space for all types of signage production, with a separate zone for the embroidery business.

The store has a highly visual on-street presence to entice walk-in trade and benefits from generous parking and good vehicle access at the rear of the premises.

Established by the present vendors back in 2007, Speedy Signs Rotorua is part of the world’s largest signage group, says Place. Following growth of signage sales year-on-year, management decided in 2011 to incorporate the franchise EmbroidMe into the business.

“EmbroidMe is world’s most successful corporate clothing company and is known for providing total branding solutions that enable restaurants, schools, corporate businesses and other organisations to get noticed,” says Place.

“This business personalises and sells quality workwear, uniforms, sportswear, corporate and promotional items. EmbroidMe is an ideal companion for Speedy Signs, as together they deliver complete branding solutions under-one-roof; each providing an opportunity for the other to achieve complementary sales. Invariably customers who buy signage want branded clothing and vice versa.”

Place says about 80 per cent of the business is repeat business.  “A loyal client base and an experienced team in Rotorua, provide an excellent opportunity for a purchaser to continue to grow the business over the next few years.”
