The business is a 10+ year old, well established wholesale distributor of recording chart paper, recorder pens, marking systems, and chart recorder supplies for test, measurement or recording applications, to a broad American (and some international) client base. These ESSENTIAL consumables are supplied to a variety of industries including Pharmaceutical, Medical, Food Processing, Food Transportation, Dairy Processing, Oil & Gas, Municipal Utilities, and Industrial Manufacturing. The company also supplies pressure and temperature chart recorders and test gauges. Chart recorders are electromechanical devices that record electrical or mechanical measurement inputs onto a piece of paper (the chart). Chart recorders may record several inputs using different color pens and may record onto strip charts or circular charts.

The company?s product lines are not easily affected by trends and market fluctuations because they are needed for quality control records, QC testing requirements and FDA compliance. Although electronic data logging exists, many industries are REQUIRED to keep written data logs.

Clients are satisfied with the service provided and are committed to using the company. The strength of the company is its repeat business and referrals from the established base of ~12,000+ customers. The company has been in business for ~10+ years with ~50% of orders coming from repeat business through long-established repeat clients. The customer base is well-diversified each year with the largest customer (varying each year) being approximately 3-11% of total sales and the top 10 customers (varying each year) accounting for approximately 18%-26% of sales. The owner feels that there are significant growth opportunities and will be happy to discuss with a qualified prospective purchaser.

The business occupies approximately 1,900+/- SF with 900+/- SF office and 1,000+/- SF warehouse which can be RELOCATED anywhere in the USA. For an existing company, the inventory can be stored in approx 1000 SF +/- warehouse.

If required by a commercial lender, the seller will consider financing up to 10% of the price to a purchaser qualified/approved by the seller. Seller prefers to sell for ALL-CASH.
