Purchasing a powder coating business
I am looking to buy a powder coating business and have no experience in this area. There are experienced staff and the present owner will stay on for 3 months. Is this sufficient or should I have experience myself? Should I employ a consultant? Any suggestions or comments would be welcome.Earle Porteous

You'll find out what is meant by the expression "time flies". It will seem like the previous owner only stayed with you for 3 days. But keeping an existing powder coating business running is probably a lot easier than starting one.
As for hiring a powder coating consultant, the time to do it is before you sign the contract. S/he may tell you it looks promising, or that the business is worthless.
