This is a relocatable manufacturer of a unique, innovative and profitable product line. The company’s winter sports equipment is award winning and well-reviewed. The niche market served is small but there are reasons to believe its latest products are category-extending and will take this company’s products to new sales heights within the next few years.
The company has a leading brand in the U.S. and is just breaking into Canadian and European markets. The current owner is selling to retire after leading the company for two decades. The owner is an enthusiast for the sport he serves and inventor of its latest technological advance.
The opportunity to buy this company now is ideal for either a strategic buyer in the fitness-lifestyle/sporting goods space or an entrepreneurial individual buyer. The brand is well-established as a premium brand and is well-positioned for exponential growth.
This unique company would be a valuable asset for any acquirer with an already-existing company infrastructure of sales, marketing and operations. The business would also benefit from additional complimentary winter products as well as counter-seasonal products already being made by a potential corporate acquirer.
It could also fulfill the dream of an individual winter sports enthusiast looking for the entrepreneurial opportunity of a lifetime. An ideal new owner would be someone looking for a lifestyle opportunity to work in the prestigious outdoor industry.
Currently, the company is a manufacturer and wholesaler of its product line to a small number of large and select retailers, like REI. This could be expanded a lot. It also sells its product line on Amazon and on its own website. Currently, the company owner is in discussions with contacts in Canada and Austria to greatly expand market coverage.
