The owners have created a commercial business with a strong repeat customer base, providing professional and friendly service whilst supplying quality commercial and retail cleaning products.

The business has three distinct income streams.
1.  A quality range of cleaning chemicals (floor cleaners,disinfectants etc) and hardware (brooms,mops buckets etc) . These lines are readily supplied to our commercial and retail clients.

2.  Our second income stream comes from one recently introduced. A paper (toilet paper,hand towels) and packaging (drink cups, food containers and straws  etc)  This income area had very humble beginnings, however it is now showing strong growth with many commercial businesses taking advantage of a local supplier.

3.  The last and major income stream comes from our pool and spa range. Innisfail Chemex is a fully accredited pool and spa shop. Innisfail Chemex is an Astral Alliance Partner which allows us to sell the entire range of Astral Products from pool and spa chemicals to Pumps, Filters and Chlorinators . This range very importantly contains the full range of Astral Robotic pool cleaners. Astral is the biggest brand in the world with access to both domestic and commercial ranges of products. Astral has set up a factory in Victoria with some 6 acres underroof. The great majority of all Astral products are made locally here in Australia with industry leading warranties on all products. Being an Astral Alliance Partner, Innisfail Chemex is now the principal service and repair agent between Cairns and Townsville

Innisfail Chemex sells and installs a full range of pool and spa products from all the major suppliers and also provides a regular mobile maintenance service for those clients who do not have the time to maintain their own pools and spas.  This also includes handover and holiday servicing.


Market Conditions & CompetitionLocal market revolves mainly around sugar cane,bananas and cattle with prices of both cattle and sugar improving. With the added confidence this brings, the approval of the 8.4 billion Aquis integrated resort and the nearby 1.2 billion Ella bay resort has certainly increased the promise of a brighter future for the area. One other business in town sells cleaning chemicals and packaging with a irrigation store doing pool testing.

Financial SummaryMargins have been maintained over the last number of years. Expenditure has not increased and is closely monitored. Profit margins have been maintained above industry standards. Stock turnover is excellent.

Training & SupportFollowing sale, the owners will provide two weeks training on all aspects of the business. The complete operations of the business have been fully detailed in our operations manuals. Mr and Mrs Toy have no immediate plans to leave this beautiful part of Queensland and will be available should the new owners require further knowledge or assistance.

Reason for SellingCurrent owners have been running this business for 27 years and are now looking to see what other opportunities this world has to offer. Mr Toy also had the misfortune to incur a knee injury which does not allow him to do the work required for this business to keep it operating at it's full potential. Mr Toys injury is worse than expected and as such owners are very motivated to sell.
