Detailed Information


The Company rents two locations; a 4,500 sq. ft., administrative space they’ve occupied for the past 35 years, and a 10,000 sq. ft., offsite workshop. Administrative space rent of $4,345.00 per month is paid through April 30, 2024. Shop rent is $6,431.25 and the lease expires September 30, 2022. It is possible a Buyer can renew.


There are few companies who do the same type of work; none to the same level of quality. Over the years, the Sellers have seen competitors come and go. However, there has always been enough work for all to stay busy and profitable. At this time, the Company cannot schedule all potential jobs and has turned down some work.

Growth & Expansion:

This is a going concern and finding skilled tradesmen and building the workforce (a nationwide issue in all industries) would help ensure stable growth. Hiring salespeople in the Generator and Ship Repair division, and developing more “sole source” products for the Government is a good place to start. Long-range, look to develop contacts/market capabilities to Offshore Wind Projects


Limited seller financing will be considered for highly qualified Buyers with significant funding in place if structure and terms are acceptable.

Support & Training:

To ensure a smooth transition and ongoing success the Sellers will work with a buyer, initially for four weeks, then for up to six months to a year as part-time employees, on-call consultants, or as individually negotiated.

Reason for Selling:

Both Sellers are looking to transition into full or part-time retirement.
