Brand, marketing and promotion
Having been established for 4 years the company owners have spent considerable time and effort to create one of the most well recognized and well branded scuba diving schools on Koh Tao. The sale of the company includes all branding, marketing and promotional materials. This includes:
• Fully functioning bi-lingual website absolutely bursting with incredible content : www.pimpmydive.net

A final thought
The sale of this company has been designed to be as seamless and as hassle free as possible. This is very much a turnkey sale to allow the new owners to be up and running and operational as quickly as possible hence the lock stock sale of the company and all its working parts.

In our opinion the sale would ideally suit either a group of investors looking to set up their own dive operation or an individual looking to quickly jump into the business and establish his own team of dive professionals.

It is worth mentioning that there is a rise in restrictions and increasing bureaucracy for foreign investors looking to set up businesses in Thailand. Buying an established and bonafide company is by far the simplest, quickest and cheapest means by which to start a business in Thailand saving up to 18 months of red tape and administrative paperwork.

Reason for Sale
After 10 years of living on Koh Tao the current owners would like now to pursue other opportunities nearer their family home in Europe.
