What is on offer?

The business has grown substantially over time from a simple one-person operation into a well-respected mid-sized civil contracting company. They have become the market leaders (local region) in moving large scale quantities of material, safely and efficiently with a substantial client focus.

The business has also cultivated strong alliances and partnerships with many of the leading civil firms in the region, currently undertaking the bulk of earthworks on numerous land subdivisions in the area. With a reliable and experienced team, they have completed works for the first and second release of the Gen Fynford estate on the site of the old cement mine.

The business operates with a diversified portfolio of civil construction requirements which are carried out with high quality and reliable Caterpillar equipment. This equipment is meticulously maintained to the highest standards of safety and reliability, ensuring no downtime or poor outcomes.

Much of the customer base comes from long term relationships built over the years. New clients come from recommendations and testimonials. With a strong visual presence in the region and a recognisable logo which is seen on many transport and staff vehicles, the business is well known and highly regarded in the industry.

What is the investment rationale?

The greater Geelong region is forecast for continual growth over the next 30 years. New land estates located across Geelong’s north have been identified as the future growth corridor for Victoria, along with the continued development of Armstrong Creek, set to become the same size as Shepperton by its completion and underpin Geelong’s future residential growth.

Furthermore, the financial commitments made by the Federal and State Government to the Priority Projects under G21 Growth Areas, Avalon Airport, Regional Rail Connections, Great Ocean Road, G21 Regional Harbours, G21 Regional Road Connections, Central Geelong Revitalisation, and Port of Geelong Growth presents real long-term opportunities.

There is a clear growth potential for a company looking to cement a strategic alliance and achieve significant revenue growth in the civil contracting environment. The customer base, diversified portfolio and extensive experience would be a substantial acquisition for any organisation. Lockout the competition by building barriers to entry and ensure you remain the preferred contractor – or – expand your operation with this strategic acquisition to place your organisation in the frame, ready to compete on a level playing field with a competitive advantage on price and flexibility.
