Opportunity Knocks But Once

26 Don Street, Bowen Q
  • $1.749 million


Top of the Whitsundays – Local Business Opportunity exists for a motivated operator to resurrect this well respected family business to its former expertise. Situated on the main arterial road into Bowen, the business has thrived over many years with only family illness forcing the sale.

Maltby Engineering (a household district name) is set on 2 freehold titles comprising 6607 m2 with dual access. The access to Kent Street provides heavy vehicle loading and unloading facilities. The call for such a business in Bowen and surrounds is enormous. The district is renowned throughout Australia for its horticulture and some of the biggest growers in the country are situated here who require engineering expertise during the growing season and beyond.  It is strategically positioned to take advantage of the Bowen Basin coal mining facilities – these multinational businesses are here to stay and do require some engineering maintenance.  The customer base and reputation that the family have built up over the years cannot be underestimated with its business including interstate clients. All that’s needed now is a new enthusiastic driver to take the business to the next level.

The workshop is 660 m2 under roof and 150 mtrs of office and display room housing all spare part and engineering tools and equipment. The shed is powered by solar assisted 3 phase. The listing of the business is on a wiwo basis and also includes a 3 bedroom high set home, 2 blocks of land, covered workshop and office plus stock and plant. There are also many extras included plus another block of land adjacent can be sold with these titles if required.

Bowen is known for its mild winters, stunning beaches and bays, picturesque lookouts and fabulous fishing. What a fantastic place to raise a family with Airlie Beach and access to Whitsunday Islands only a 45 minute drive. This is a genuine opportunity to restart this great family business with the Maltby name to back it up. Owner is prepared to stay on for a period of time if required to help kick start this opportunity.  Price includes stock, plant and equipment. Call us for more info or to inspect.
