The business provides proprietary contract services for the movement of sand, gravel, and other materials in the construction, landscaping, and related industries. They also rent out hard-to-source in-demand conventional equipment for the same purpose. Their equipment and services are used to move materials at difficult construction sites for concrete slab base, abandonment's, back fill, plumbing, and related applications, as well as for large landscaping projects.
Currently the company operates primarily in southern California, but also in northern California, Nevada, and as far east as Texas. Its potential operating scope is nationwide. They are profitable and insulated from competition.
The company holds five U.S. Patents on its technology. These patents eliminate any direct competition and offer additional business opportunities for a new owner. Furthermore, current management has been continually improving designs, increasing efficiency, and reducing maintenance, wear, and operating costs.
Because the technology is patented, if anyone wants to accomplish the same tasks, they can only do so with less sophisticated, more costly, more labor-intensive, and more time-consuming processes. This gives the company an unassailable competitive edge.
The processes covered by the patents could be used throughout the world by licensing and/or by producing the equipment for sale to other operators.
The business employs four full-time employees, cross-trained in all the technology and processes.
The seller, with over 40 years experience in the construction industry, founded the business in 1997, and has owned and operated it since then with the goal of building it to support his retirement. Now in his late sixties, with the business running efficiently and profitably and with a steady growth trend, he has decided to offer the business for sale, provide for an orderly smooth transition, and pursue his well-earned retirement.
