The Fair Dinkum Sheds steel-framed buildings franchise in the Wairarapa is seeking a new owner.
It operates under the name Affordable Sheds and makes barns, farm sheds, industrial warehouses and aircraft hangars.
Owner Alistair Bruce is retiring after 15 years’ ownership and Bayleys is calling for offers by August 7 for the business as a going concern along with the land and buildings.
The property at 278 Ngaumutawa Road, Masterton close to the Solway Showgrounds has a warehouse/office building of 220m2 plus a three bedroom home on 1.51ha.
The site is zoned rural/residential.
A buyer may decide to move the business but a condition of the Fair Dinkum franchise arrangement is that it must be operated out of a Fair Dinkum display building.
The business operates with one contract manager, three site managers, seven carpenters/labourers and one office staff member.
Work completed within the Fair Dinkum Sheds franchise operation is managed by specific software with updates and support included with the franchise agreement.
Plant, fixtures and fittings associated with the business is included with the sale.
Recently-completed projects include Ormond Engineering’s workshop and offices, Loader Construction’s workshop, barn houses for private clients and commercial buildings for various local trusts.
The Fair Dinkum Sheds brand has been in New Zealand for 18 years and is part of a 150-strong distributor network throughout Australasia.
