For sale is an 11-year-old family business with two distinct Ecommerce websites that specialize in aviation accessories. Their diversified portfolio includes niche aviation-specific accessories for GoPro camera mounts, audio cables, and adapter cables as well as a separate product line that makes aviation microphones and adapter cables. The company was the first to market in this niche, and the owner designed around 90% of the products.
Their extremely loyal customers are 80% DTC and 20% wholesale distributors, and the products are made in China with long-standing manufacturing partners. They sell through both Shopify and Amazon (Shopify 77%/Amazon 23%), but the owners have made a concerted effort in recent years to drive customers to their website instead of Amazon. Since 2017, the business has grown mostly through word-of-mouth advertising with better than 7x profit margins.
The products are currently shipped out from a small warehouse in Texas, but a buyer would need to move the inventory to another location, which wouldn’t be hard as the business requires minimal oversight and can be run remotely from anywhere.
