Annual owner profit regularly exceeding $500,000 with
professional staff in place, this business is the perfect size for
a new owner to maintain existing clients or pursue growth
opportunities such as marketing (for the first time in company
history), expanding into new territory or providing additional
services. Competition is non-existent in the areas currently
being serviced within a four-hour drive from the lab which
enables projects in NE, CO, WY, SD & MO.
Construction projects require preliminary testing and ongoing
inspections of materials, substrates, environmental and
subsurface compounds and existing facility condition. This
business focuses on three disciplines to fulfill these necessary
testing and reporting needs for clients to adhere to their
project execution: Geotechnical Engineering, Construction
Material & Inspections and Environmental Testing. Over 400
projects are completed per year for clients ranging from
Architects during preliminary project designs, to City &
Municipality projects and ordinances, industry specific
projects such as Union Pacific or Public Power Districts,
General Contractors for quality control as well as lending
institutes for environmental assessments prior to funding
approval. A project can range from 1 day to years depending
on the scope, which generally consists of completing physical
testing requested by the clients, analyzing the samplings,
compiling the findings into professional reports and
submitting to the client for further action and compliance.
Based on the results the client is then able to move forward
with the next phases of their projects or are able to be
directed in a new direction as needed.
Fully staffed with loyal employees, a new owner would
benefit with knowledge and experience in the industry or the
seller is capable of training for a transition period of up to 1
year. Lab and office are within a 40,000 sq ft facility that is
leased with ample storage room for all equipment.
Seasonality of construction projects causes an influx of
projects during Spring, Summer and Fall months, however
during the off winter season there are still projects and time
for equipment maintenance to keep busy.
