Business For Sale - Fork Lift Dealer, Service & Rental Company


Our client has been in business for over 30 years as a dealer of a national brand of lift trucks. They also buy, refurbish and sell used lifts, in addition to servicing and renting lifts trucks of all sizes.

They have an outstanding reputation which has resulted in a large stable customer base and solid, recurring and growing revenue stream (~$2M) of which over 60% is high margin parts and service.

The business is located in the eastern part of Greater Toronto in a heavy industrial area with easy reach across the GTA and Southern Ontario. The current owner has remained focused on the local market, however, a growth oriented owner could drive significant gains by expanding the sales area of this business.

This business is a great 'add-on' for an existing industrial service company looking to expand its product offering.

The owner is retiring however, is willing to remain to assist in an orderly transition.

They are acquiring majority positions (or 100%) of commercial (B2B) food ingredients and/or flavourings businesses for sale in North America. 

Ideally businesses wanted are companies that have earnings of at least $2 million and up to $50 million. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis.

Our client is a family office (private equity fund) that owns a commercial spice processor and is looking for bolt-ons or new platform opportunities. 

Operating control would remain with incumbent management.  The firm has an abundance of capital to invest and grow the business.
