Uckfield business for sale

Uckfield Framing Company is up for sale as owner Tim Benians prepares to retire.

Tim launched the business, which is based on the Bellbrook Estate, 15 years ago. It is on the market for £135,000, has a turnover of £100,000 a year, and rent of £12,000.

Uckfield Framing makes bespoke frames from a wide range of materials, wood, plastic, and metal, in all shapes, colours, and sizes.

Tim Benians, who is selling his Uckfield Framing business. He is reflected in one of the fun distorting fairground mirrors made by the company.

Display cases range from simple deep frames to internally illuminated trophy cabinets, and an increasingly popular side of the business is making fun-house distorting mirrors.

The business also provides picture framing and woodworking classes – these have been running for 35 years.

Picture framing students show off their work at the end of a one-day course at Uckfield Framing Company.

Tim works in the business and there are two flexible part-time workers.

Uckfield Framing is being advertised for sale by Transworld Business Advisors and Tim has blogged about the search for his successor on his own website here.


Tim says he has turned his passion into a business and every working day is a pleasure. He hopes that he can find a like-minded individual, or couple, to gradually hand over to in the coming months or years.

“I would like to retire sometime soon, as I have so many more projects in my future portfolio career, as well as spending more time with my family, travelling, home improvements, gardening … the list is endless. And, of course, fettling old motorbikes.”
