Cocoon International, Britain’s long- established moulded rubber clothing and equipment specialist, has been put up for sale.
After 30 years, owners Keith and Moira Comfort have decided it's time to retire.
The business, based in Birmingham, is being offered as a profitable going concern, with everything used in its normal day-to-day business included.
Cocoon produces a wide range of latex fetish clothing as well as hoods, masks, gags and inflatable paraphernalia for the heavy rubber market.
A buyer would get all the label’s patterns, cocoon1.com website and URL, customer database, specialist knowledge in gluing latex, latex moulding plant complete with tanks, oven, moulds and formers, dipping formula, stock as valued “plus our goodwill and great reputation”.
A new owner could “even get us to show them how to run Cocoon for the first three months,” says Keith, and the Cocoon shop can be included in the deal, or sold separately if the buyer doesn’t want it.
Keith also makes the point that the business could be operated from anywhere in the world as long as the buyer has access to somewhere to manufacture.
He emphasises that Cocoon is being sold, not closed down, and that all orders placed with it are guaranteed to be delivered as normal. “Until we find the right buyer it will be business as usual,” he adds.
