  • Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

    The Mining, Quarrying and Construction Machinery Manufacturing industry has high barriers to both entry and success. Operating costs can be insurmountable for prospective manufacturers that lack sufficient bankroll. Initial fixed costs may include the procurement of a site suitable for mass production, assembly line equipment, and facilities for warehousing and administrative purposes. Meanwhile, ongoing outlay (e.g. materials procurement, distribution fees, research and development costs and wage payments) can be exceptionally high contingent on the scale of production. Consequently, new entrants are often indebted during the early stages of commerce, necessitating a reliable source of finance to remain solvent...purchase to read more.
