IB017-CAD Engineered Commercial Acoustic Plant Cleaning Systems
Business for sale
Business descriptionEstablished almost 20 years ago this highly respected and professional company has developed into a highly aclaimed worldwide leader in acoustic cleaning technology. The company designs, manufactures, markets and sells a range of acoustic cleaning systems and sonic soot blowers to a whole host of blue chip clients throughout the world in a variety of different industries where particulate build up is a problem.
The acoustic cleaners are powered by compressed air and creates a series of very rapid and powerful sound induced pressure fluctuations which are transmitted into the solid particles of ash, dust, granules or powders. This causes them to resonate and debond from adjoining particles and the surface they are adhering to. Once debonded, the material will fall off due to gravity, or is carried away by the process gas, or air stream.
The company has won several awards (regional and national) for its technological innovations. Its brands, range of proudcts and unpatented technical know-how give it a real competitive edge in the industries it serves.
The vendor has invested in the business since inception in terms of staff, product designs, brand awareness, production and manufacturing integrity(using carefully selected highly skilled UK manufacturing partners whom it has excellent relationships with). This investment is further supported with globally recognised accreditations and quality control prcedures. Because of this the company is regarded as a true market leader in terms of product performance and reputation.
At present some 88% of sales are export. Approximately 50% of sales are done direct (circa 400+ direct customers), the remaining 50% via its appointed worldwide agents. The company currently has a network of sales agents in some 15 countries with product installations spanning some 71 different countries at present.
Typical industries/applications this business serves includes most material storage silo facilities:- cement and gypsum, food products such as flour, animal feed, waste to energy plants, chemical, pharmaceutical, power generation, timber products, carbon black, ceramics, smelting, cosmetic, brewing and distilling, material handling and transportation to name just a few. Power generation is seeing large demand at present and this is an area the company has enjoyed recent success in and sees large volume opportunties moving forward
All of these industries require plant and processes to be working at their most efficient so investment in high quality and effective acoustic cleaners makes perfect sense to this business’s customers.
