Turning Competitors Into Collaborators

If you want to open an automation equipment and systems dealers industrial business the next step is to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.

Indeed, many experienced entrepreneurs enjoy offering advice to startup entrepreneurs.

Top Three Reasons to Buy an Established Automation Equipment & Systems Dealers Industrial Business

At Gaebler, we think it makes a lot of sense to explore an automation equipment and systems dealers industrial business purchase before committing to a startup.

You'll want to conduct a comprehensive due diligence process, but here are three arguments why you should think about buying instead of a startup.

  • Proven Profitability. If you're careful in your research, the automation equipment and systems dealers industrial business you buy will have a track record of profitability a big plus since it may take months or even years for a startup to turn a profit.
  • Established Operations & Processes. When you're shopping for an automation equipment and systems dealers industrial business, be sure to look for ones that have all of the necessary processes and systems to ensure seamless operations from your first day of ownership.
  • Capital Acquisition. Lenders, investors and other funding sources almost always prefer business purchases to startups.

Consider Franchising

As an entrepreneur, your chances achieving your top business goals are greatly increased when you franchise and leverage their successful brand and track record.

Before you get too far along in your plan to open an automation equipment and systems dealers industrial business, you may want to assess whether buying a franchise could increase your chances of success.
