Business Description

The Business:

This Partnership business is well established as a specialised made to measure manufacturer & retailer of high-end raincoats, overcoats and accessories to customers throughout the UK. It was founded in 1985 and was acquired by the current owners in 2001 and in that time have consolidated its reputation among its customers through its successful UK wide roadshow, where it takes orders and makes sales by its presence at regional events & shows in Towns & Cities throughout the country.

At these events, customers take advantage of a fitting where they can ensure that the coat they order will be a perfect fit.

They have also  introduced a functional but under-exploited channel for sales through its website which allows customers to order a made to measure coat and also retails accessories such as hats, scarves, detachable linings and clearance stock.

The current owners now strongly believe that the business is well placed to take advantage of its new form and structure.

Much has been done by the current owners to consolidate a reliable & sustainable UK small manufacturer & retailer of coats & hats; it is perfectly positioned for growth

Current marketing tools include attendance at events & shows throughout the UK where circa 60% of sales are made and the business’ website which is responsible for the remaining 15% with workshop visits, telephone mail orders accounting for the final 25%.

The business does not currently engage in social media marketing and has no presence through larger mainstream channels such as Ebay and Amazon.

Current staff include three full time seamstresses who ensure that all orders are met in a timely way.

The business has a remarkably stable trading history with demand challenging supply on an almost constant basis, making the business a perfect platform to introduce new products and new sales channels.

  • Discretely known and respected UK retail brand
  • Small team capable of business augmentation
  • Excellent reputation and trading history
