About the Business Wanted by this Buyer

I would be fine with virtually any "not too highly technical" manufacturing business.  I am not a chemist, or an engineer of any kind, but am an experienced businessman in my mid 40s with 18 solid years business experience. I am quite a hands-on, mechanical type of business operator and am ready, willing and able to roll up my sleeves, get dirty and learn quickly about the business I will be purchasing.

Manufacturing products and processes could include wood, metal, fibreglass, plastic, vinyl, fibre materials, glass ... almost anything that I would be able learn about with the assistance of the current owner and others currently employed by the business, and who would presumably stay with the business post sale

I prefer business to business sales and marketing, but would probably not exclude an industrial or commercial retail business.  And, I'm sure there will be businesses out there that I haven't even thought of at this point, so let me just say that I am a businessman interested in good profitable business enterprise with a future.

Types of Business Not Wanted by this Buyer

I think I am probably not ideally suited to a highly technical business. Neither am I looking for a machine shop or a mechanical repair shop.  ... but at the same time, a friend of mine bought a business a couple of years ago that he had absolutely no interest in looking at, until he saw and understood the numbers and the potential, so I'm not going to rule out a whole lot at this point.

About the Buyer's Background

I have owned and was the primary operator of two businesses over the past 17 years; one from 2001 to 2011, and the other from 2009 to 2016.  I purchased both when they were in a bit of financial trouble and was able to turn them both around and grow them quite substantially.  I sold one of them in 2011 and the other in 2016, and both businesses continue to do well.  One is a manufacture/fabricator of metal products; equipment, The other an industrial service centre. Neither in the BC lower mainland.

About Pricing and/or Terms

I want an established business with a proven earnings record and I'm prepared to pay a fair market price for it.  I have financial capabilities, including cash on hand and good banking relationships.  I can and will act quickly, once I've found the right business.

I am prepared to commit myself financially, but will be looking to keep the seller interested and involved for a while, with some vendor financing as well.

I would also be open to a buy-out over time, if the current owner wasn't quite ready to just quit and go away; to quite ready to retire perhaps, but might see me as a good opportunity to help provide the way to step out at the right time.
