BUSINESS PLAN FOR MINI FACTORY ON SIDING PRODUCTION
Siding is a popular building material that is actively used for cladding and protecting building facades. There will always be demand for building material. To open your own siding business is a cost-effective and profitable step that will require responsible start-up infusions associated with the purchase of expensive equipment. Despite this, the business on siding pays off for 2 years, which indicates its high profitability.
PRODUCTION OF METAL SIDING OR PVC
Installation of siding scheme.
So, the size of investments in the implementation of a business idea is determined by which siding to produce: PVC, metal or wood. Or all at once! From the point of view of profit, of course, the last option is preferable – “all at once”, because a wide assortment range will make it possible to quickly find your customers and become better than narrow-profile competitors. But in this review we will not consider the production of wood siding, as the demand for it is low and unstable.
Wood siding is most often exotic and its payback is difficult to predict in the building materials market. A high-quality tree is expensive, but few people want to buy wooden siding. Its only advantage is the most affordable equipment for production in comparison with metal siding and PVC. For exotic and expanding the range of production can be purchased, but not at the beginning of the start of a business project. Too high risks of cash gaps.
Metal siding is suitable for all climatic zones. Its color is more resistant to sunburn. Non-flammable and absolutely environmentally friendly material. Of the important disadvantages, it is worth noting its high price, high weight, the need to use enhanced sound insulation and thermal insulation during installation.
The advantages and disadvantages of vinyl siding over metal siding are inversely proportional to the pros and cons of metal.
Ideally, it is better to use metal siding for residential buildings, and vinyl PVC made for household buildings.
EQUIPMENT FOR PRODUCTION OF METAL AND PVC SIDING
The area of the premises for the workshop is formed based on the size of the equipment. An automatic line for the production of metal siding will take 12 m in length and about ten in width, thermoplastic PVC siding machines – about 50 square meters. m. Plus a storage room for materials and finished dimensional sheets. A total of about 250-300 m² should be available.
Access roads for the movement of the truck should lead to the workshop.
The cost of an automatic line for the production of metal siding is from 12 thousand dollars, it includes:
holder and unwinder of steel coils;
roll forming machine;
cutting machine with interchangeable knives;
reception and rolling tables.
An extruder for casting PVC siding will cost $ 6000. Additionally, it is necessary to pay for the delivery, installation, trial run and debugging of all nodes. To order an extruder to complete the production line:
a device for rolling and forming a sheet;
cooling chambers (blanks cool down in them).
Total total equipment costs will be about $ 40,000.
It will not be superfluous to equip the production with a crane-beam and a loader, as well as its own truck.
RAW MATERIALS FOR PRODUCTION OF SIDING AT MINI-FACTORY
To obtain metal siding, galvanized cold-rolled coiled steel is used with a primer and anti-corrosion coating applied to it. For PVC siding, as the name implies, vinyl-polymer materials. Prices are determined by the volume of output, as a result, by the size of the batch of purchased raw materials. It is important to look for a supplier closer to the production location in order to reduce transport costs.
RECRUITMENT OF EMPLOYEES
As for the staff, although steel siding is made using an automated line, human control is indispensable. Required:
at least 2 operators;
director of operations;
For sales of products – sales managers.
ADVERTISING MARKETING AND PROMOTION OF PRODUCTS
Design siding of the facade.
Effective methods of promoting an industrial business based on production are the availability of at least a one-page site, announcements in the network and the press, participation in auctions and electronic bidding. It brings results, albeit expensive, advertising on radio and television, as well as active cold calls based on the numbers of potential customers of enterprises, visits and negotiations with customers. These are construction markets and shops, companies and individuals, end-consumers, intermediaries – dealers and distributors of building materials in the region.
INCOME AND EXPENDITURE OF BUSINESS ON SIDING PRODUCTION
In total, the starting capital necessary to open your business on the production and sale of PVC and metal siding is 75,000 cu
