Asset Sale Description

Purchase a Turn Key Manufacturing Operation

Manufacturer of wood baseball bats provides awesome opportunity for person with business and marketing experience!

Delano Bats LLC was started in 2013 and sales nearly doubled every year through 2018 when a peak of $100,000 was hit. As the sales increased, so did the need to be more communicative with amateur ball, youth AAA travel, etc. After much self-reflection, the owner realized he did not have the required sales and marketing skill set or set an interest in baseball to reach full potential. For the last couple years, the business was run as a side job. The owner was going to school during this period and not actively looking to grow the business. During this time, a spin off product was created. This product still needs a lot of research and development before it could hit the market. The owner will soon graduate from school and needs to focus on the developmental products as opposed to making bats on a part time scale.

We have gone through the school of hard knocks and learned how to make a great looking and high-quality baseball bat. We have a state-of-the-art manufacturing cell ready to move to your location. With right owner, the business can do $50,000 in sales with little work and could be at $200,000 in two to three years.

Three Purchase Options:
Option 1
Purchase the manufacturing Cell only. If you are comfortable with the operating equipment, have your won models and CNC codes, and you feel good about your ability to make the bats without additional help. Price: $89,000

Option 2 - Purchase the Manufacturing Cell plus we help you setup your equipment and provide training on how to use it. Price is determined by the situation.

Option 3- Same as option 2 except we review our manufacturing process and quality systems and what we learned from the School of Hard Knocks. Price is determined by the situation.

Therefore, we are offering our manufacturing equipment, processes, and knowledge acquired while making high end wood bats. The systems in place have built a name for quality and reduced time per each process to 4 minutes or less.

A good bat begins with good wood. When buying billets, it is crucial to understand the connection between natural wood density and the popular models sold to the customers. Balancing this inventory will go a long way towards turning a profit. There are ways to buy quality wood at lower prices by optimizing the extreme accuracy of the lathe.

Selecting the right billet for the desired bat model is also critical. Customers want a wide variety of specifications which drive the different models. With these different specifications comes different bat volumes. The bat volume and desired bat weight will determine the density of wood needed. The bats sold need to fit the bell curve distribution of wood density to maintain a balanced inventory. With the right billet selected for the right model, a quality bat can be made. The CNC machine is accurate down to +/- .002" and will cut the same profile for different lengths in 3 minutes. The bat models have been designed to sell evenly through the wood density curve.

The unfinished bat is stained to preserve maximum grain visibility. These stains are based upon formulas we created for the perfect color with a durable finish. There are 20 colors in inventory, but the system allows almost an infinite number to be created. A custom machine presses the surface of the barrel and adds additional pop from the bat. The engraver adds the final personalization to the bat. The process can be set up to make an infinite number of custom options, or just produce many bats in similar configurations.

We can teach you how we make our bats and our take on the industry. You also can also receive detailed sales information as well. With our experience combined with your sales and marketing skills and love for the game, you will be successful!
