Licensor of Manufacturing Technology #10332

Annual Revenue: $2.4M (2018E)

The owners of this company came together 25 years ago to solve a problem. They all had complimentary businesses of their own and were seeking a collaborative and cost-effective way to use existing materials to do what had never been done before. After 10+ years of design and testing, they had a fully proven solution ready for the market. Their solution, originally conceived for their own use, had grown into something with a much broader application than they had originally conceived. They have now spent the past seventeen years introducing their solution to those who could use it. The business is now at an inflection point and has shifted from a development phase to a marketing phase. Repeat users are increasing and sales are following suit. The original owners are nearing retirement and are serving in “consulting” roles now. They believe that the business is ready for a new, energetic owner who can build upon their success and take the business to the next level.
