What Is a Business Plan?

A business plan provides a snapshot of your manufacturing business as it stands today, and lays out your growth plan for the next five years. It explains your business goals and your strategy for reaching them. It also includes market research to support your plans.

Why You Need a Business Plan

If you’re looking to start a new manufacturing business, or grow your existing manufacturing business, you need a business plan. A business plan will help you raise funding, if needed, and plan out the growth of your manufacturing business in order to improve your chances of success. Your business plan is a living document that should be updated annually as your company grows and changes.

Sources of Funding for Manufacturing Businesses

With regards to funding, the main sources of funding for a manufacturing business are personal savings, credit cards, bank loans and angel investors. With regards to bank loans, banks will want to review your business plan and gain confidence that you will be able to repay your loan and interest. To acquire this confidence, the loan officer will not only want to confirm that your financials are reasonable, but they will also want to see a professional plan. Such a plan will give them the confidence that you can successfully and professionally operate a business.

Personal savings is the other most common form of funding for a manufacturing business. Venture capitalists will usually not fund a manufacturing business. They might consider funding a manufacturing business with a national presence, but never an individual location. This is because most venture capitalists are looking for millions of dollars in return when they make an investment, and an individual location could never achieve such results.  With that said, personal savings and bank loans are the most common funding paths for manufacturing businesses.

How to write a business plan for a manufacturing company.

If you want to start a manufacturing business or expand your current one, you need a business plan. Below we detail what you should include in each section of your own business plan:

Executive Summary

Your executive summary provides an introduction to your business plan, but it is normally the last section you write because it provides a summary of each key section of your plan.

The goal of your Executive Summary is to quickly engage the reader. Explain to them the type of manufacturing business you are operating and the status. For example, are you a startup, do you have a manufacturing business that you would like to grow, or are you operating a chain of manufacturing businesses?

Next, provide an overview of each of the subsequent sections of your plan. For example, give a brief overview of the manufacturing industry. Discuss the type of manufacturing business you are operating. Detail your direct competitors. Give an overview of your target market. Provide a snapshot of your marketing strategy. Identify the key members of your team. And offer an overview of your financial plan.  

Company Analysis

In your company analysis, you will detail the type of business you are operating.

There are many types of manufacturing businesses, such as:

  • Clothing manufacturing
  • Garment manufacturing
  • Food product manufacturing
  • Diaper manufacturing
  • Tile manufacturing
  • Toy manufacturing
  • Soap and detergent manufacturing
  • Mobile accessories manufacturing
  • Mattress manufacturing
  • Bicycle manufacturing
  • Pillow manufacturing
  • Brick manufacturing
  • Toilet paper manufacturing
  • Furniture manufacturing
  • Peanut butter manufacturing
  • Cosmetics manufacturing
  • Footwear manufacturing

In addition to explaining the type of manufacturing business you will operate, the Company Analysis section of your business plan needs to provide background on the business.

Include answers to question such as:

  • When and why did you start the business?
  • What milestones have you achieved to date? Milestones could include the number of customers served, number of positive reviews, number of wholesale contracts, etc.
  • Your legal structure. Are you incorporated as an S-Corp? An LLC? A sole proprietorship? Explain your legal structure here.

Industry Analysis

In your industry or market analysis, you need to provide an overview of the manufacturing industry.

While this may seem unnecessary, it serves multiple purposes.

First, researching the manufacturing industry educates you. It helps you understand the market in which you are operating.

Secondly, market research can improve your strategy, particularly if your research identifies market trends.

The third reason for market research is to prove to readers that you are an expert in your industry. By conducting the research and presenting it in your plan, you achieve just that.

The following questions should be answered in the industry analysis section:

  • How big is the manufacturing industry (in dollars)?
  • Is the market declining or increasing?
  • Who are the key competitors in the market?
  • Who are the key suppliers in the market?
  • What trends are affecting the industry?
  • What is the industry’s growth forecast over the next 5 – 10 years?
  • What is the relevant market size? That is, how big is the potential market for your manufacturing business? You can extrapolate such a figure by assessing the size of the market in the entire country and then applying that figure to your local population.

Customer Analysis

The customer analysis section must detail the customers you serve and/or expect to serve.

The following are examples of target market segments: wholesalers, other manufacturers, exports, retailers.

As you can imagine, the customer segment(s) you choose will have a great impact on the type of manufacturing business you operate. Clearly, retailers would respond to different marketing promotions than export markets, for example.

Try to break out your target market in terms of their demographic and psychographic profiles. With regards to demographics, include a discussion of the ages, genders, locations and income levels of the customers you seek to serve. Because most manufacturing businesses primarily serve customers living in their same city or town, such demographic information is easy to find on government websites.

Psychographic profiles explain the wants and needs of your target customers. The more you can understand and define these needs, the better you will do in attracting and retaining your customers.

Competitive Analysis

Your competitive analysis should identify the indirect and direct competitors your business faces and then focus on the latter.

Direct competitors are other manufacturing businesses.

Indirect competitors are other options that customers have to purchase from that aren’t direct competitors. This includes manufacturers in other niches, as well as those vertically integrated businesses that make their own product. You need to mention such competition as well.

With regards to direct competition, you want to describe the other manufacturing businesses with which you compete. Most likely, your direct competitors will be house flippers located very close to your location.

manufacturing and production business competition

For each such competitor, provide an overview of their businesses and document their strengths and weaknesses. Unless you once worked at your competitors’ businesses, it will be impossible to know everything about them. But you should be able to find out key things about them such as:

  • What types of customers do they serve?
  • What types of products do they manufacture?
  • What is their pricing (premium, low, etc.)?
  • What are they good at?
  • What are their weaknesses?

With regards to the last two questions, think about your answers from the customers’ perspective. And don’t be afraid to ask your competitors’ customers what they like most and least about them.

The final part of your competitive analysis section is to document your areas of competitive advantage. For example:

  • Will you provide high quality manufacturing practices?
  • Will you provide services that your competitors don’t offer?
  • Will you provide better customer service?
  • Will you offer better pricing?

Think about ways you will outperform your competition and document them in this section of your plan.  

Marketing Plan

Traditionally, a marketing plan includes the four P’s: Product, Price, Place, and Promotion. For a manufacturing business, your marketing strategy should include the following:

Product : In the product section, you should reiterate the type of manufacturing company that you documented in your Company Analysis. Then, detail the specific products you will be offering. For example, in addition to manufacturing, will you provide R&D, design, prototyping or any other services?

Price : Document the prices you will offer and how they compare to your competitors. Essentially in the product and price sub-sections of your marketing plan, you are presenting the services you offer and their prices.

Place : Place refers to the location of your manufacturing company. Document your location and mention how the location will impact your success. For example, is your manufacturing business located near a distribution hub, etc. Discuss how your location might be the ideal location for your customers.

Promotions : The final part is the promotions section. Here you will document how you will drive customers to your location(s). The following are some promotional methods you might consider:

  • Advertising in local papers and magazines
  • Reaching out to local websites
  • Social media marketing
  • Local radio advertising

Operations Plan

While the earlier sections of your business plan explained your goals, your operations plan describes how you will meet them. Your operations plan should have two distinct sections as follows.

Everyday short-term processes include all of the tasks involved in running your manufacturing business, including sourcing inputs, designing processes, managing production, coordinating logistics and meeting with potential buyers.

Long-term goals are the milestones you hope to achieve. These could include the dates when you expect to secure your 1,000 th contract, or when you hope to reach $X in revenue. It could also be when you expect to expand your manufacturing business to a new city.  

Management Team

To demonstrate your manufacturing business’ ability to succeed, a strong team is essential. Highlight your key players’ backgrounds, emphasizing those skills and experiences that prove their ability to grow a company.

Ideally you and/or your team members have direct experience in managing manufacturing businesses. If so, highlight this experience and expertise. But also highlight any experience that you think will help your business succeed.

If your team is lacking, consider assembling an advisory board. An advisory board would include 2 to 8 individuals who would act like mentors to your business. They would help answer questions and provide strategic guidance. If needed, look for advisory board members with experience in manufacturing or successfully running small businesses.  

Financial Plan

Your financial plan should include your 5-year financial statement broken out both monthly or quarterly for the first year and then annually. Your financial statements include your income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statements.

Income Statement : an income statement is more commonly called a Profit and Loss statement or P&L. It shows your revenues and then subtracts your costs to show whether you turned a profit or not.

In developing your income statement, you need to devise assumptions. For example, will you offer short-run production, or will you focus strictly on long-run? And will sales grow by 2% or 10% per year? As you can imagine, your choice of assumptions will greatly impact the financial forecasts for your business. As much as possible, conduct research to try to root your assumptions in reality.

Balance Sheets : Balance sheets show your assets and liabilities. While balance sheets can include much information, try to simplify them to the key items you need to know about. For instance, if you spend $50,000 on building out your manufacturing business, this will not give you immediate profits. Rather it is an asset that will hopefully help you generate profits for years to come. Likewise, if a bank writes you a check for $50,000, you don’t need to pay it back immediately. Rather, that is a liability you will pay back over time.

Cash Flow Statement : Your cash flow statement will help determine how much money you need to start or grow your business, and make sure you never run out of money. What most entrepreneurs and business owners don’t realize is that you can turn a profit but run out of money and go bankrupt.

In developing your Income Statement and Balance Sheets be sure to include several of the key costs needed in starting or growing a manufacturing business:

  • Location build-out including design fees, construction, etc.
  • Cost of equipment and supplies
  • Payroll or salaries paid to staff
  • Business insurance
  • Taxes and permits
  • Legal expenses

Attach your full financial projections in the appendix of your plan along with any supporting documents that make your plan more compelling. For example, you might include your production facility blueprint, or capabilities specifications.  

Putting together a business plan for your manufacturing business is a worthwhile endeavor. If you follow the template above, by the time you are done, you will truly be an expert. You will really understand the manufacturing industry, your competition, and your customers. You will have developed a marketing plan and will really understand what it takes to launch and grow a successful manufacturing business.

The journey is a difficult one, and the chances of success are slim. Those that succeed sometimes have a brilliant idea, while others have a wealth of resources. The one commonality among all successful entrepreneurs is that they had a manufacturing business plan.

You need to know where you are going, how you will get there, and what you will do when you arrive. This is especially important for those in the manufacturing industry because of the significant amount of forethought required.

Even if you are leveraging digital solutions to minimize the amount of time, money, and effort required to bring your product to market, you will still need a plan. This is not an area where you can wing it and hope for the best.

Below, we will examine the basics of a manufacturing business plan, what is necessary to include, how to create one for your own company, and some common mistakes that you should avoid.

Table of contents:

What is a manufacturing business plan, why does a manufacturing company need a business plan, what are the key components of a business plan, how to write a business plan for a manufacturing company, common mistakes to avoid.

A manufacturing business plan is a formal document that outlines the goals and objectives of your business. It includes detailed information about your: 

  • Products or services 
  • Target market 
  • Marketing strategy
  • Financial projections 
  • Operational details  

The purpose of a business plan is to give you a roadmap to follow as you build and grow your business. It forces you to think through every aspect of your venture and identify potential problems or roadblocks before they happen. 

Manufacturing business plans can also be used to attract investors or secure funding from lenders. If you are looking for outside financing, your business plan needs to be even more detailed and include information on your management team, financial history, and expected growth. 

Ideally, you should update your business plan yearly to ensure that it remains relevant and accurate. As your business grows and changes, so too should your plan. 

No matter how simple or complex your ideas may be, you need a plan, or they will never become a reality. A business plan will clearly understand your costs, competition, and target market. It will also help you to set realistic goals and track your progress over time. 

Let’s look at a manufacturing strategy example. You have a great idea that you think will revolutionize the  automotive industry . Your new safety harness will be made from a lightweight, yet incredibly strong, material that cannot be cut or torn. You are confident that your product will be in high demand and generate a lot of revenue. 

But before you walk into Ford or Toyota to try and get a  purchase order , you need to have a plan. You must know: 

  • How much will it cost to produce your product
  • How many units do you need to sell to break even 
  • Who is your target market is 
  • What is your competition selling 
  • How will you reach your target market 

You also need to clearly understand the regulatory landscape and what it takes to bring a new product to market. All of this information (and more) should be included in your business plan. 

This is not just a document that you create and forget about. It is a living, breathing tool that should be used to guide your actions as you build and grow your business. 

Every manufacturing business plan will be different, but almost always, they will include the same five components: 

Executive summary

Company description, products and services, market analysis.

  • Financial plan 

Let’s take a closer look.

The executive summary is the first section of your business plan, but it is typically written last. This is because it should be a concise overview of everything that follows, and you can only do that once you have completed the rest of your plan. 

Include the following in your executive summary: 

  • The problem that your product or service solves
  • Your target market
  • Your unique selling proposition (what makes you different from your competitors?)
  • Your manufacturing business model (how will you make money?)
  • Your sales and  marketing strategy
  • A brief overview of your financial projections

Someone should be able to quickly scan through your executive summary and have a pretty good understanding of what your business is and how it plans to be successful. 

This is where you can get a bit more creative, explaining your company’s history, mission, and values. You will also include information on your team or management structure. 

It can be simple but should inspire faith in your ability to execute your business plan. 

You will need to provide a detailed description of your product or service, as well as any unique features or benefits that it offers. You should also include information on your  manufacturing process  and  quality control  procedures. 

If you have any patents or proprietary technology, they should be listed here as significant assets for your business. 

For example, let’s say you are planning on creating a brand-new line of disposable coffee cups. The dimensions, materials, and other specifications would be listed here, along with any unique benefits (such as being made from recycled materials). 

You might also include information on your manufacturing process, such as the fact that the cups will be produced in a certified clean room or that you will employ workers local to where the product is sold.

Chances are, you started down this path because you realized that there was a market opportunity for your product or service. In this section, you will need to provide detailed information on the opening, as well as the analysis that convinced you to pursue it. 

This should include: 

  • Market size (current and projected)
  • Key market segments
  • Customer needs and wants
  • Competitive landscape 

This is where you will need to do your homework, as you will be justifying your business decision to enter this particular market. The more data and analysis you can provide, the better. 

For our coffee cup example, the market analysis might include:

  • Information on how many cups are used every day 
  • Projected growth 
  • Key segments (such as office workers or on-the-go consumers) 
  • Customer needs (such as convenience or sustainability)  

It would also examine the competitive landscape, including both direct and indirect competitors.

Financial plan

You’re in this to make money, and so are your potential investors. In this section, you will need to provide detailed information on your manufacturing business model and how it will generate revenue. This should include: 

  • Initial investment
  • Sales forecast
  • Carrying costs
  • Pricing strategy
  • Expense budget 

You will also need to provide information on your long-term financial goals, such as profitability or break-even point. Discuss production line details,  inventory management strategies , and other factors impacting your bottom line.

The process of creating a business plan for a manufacturing company is similar to any other type of business. However, there are some key considerations to keep in mind. 

First, you need to understand your industry and what it will take to be successful in it. This includes understanding the competitive landscape,  the costs of goods sold , and the margins you can expect to achieve. 

You also need to have a clear understanding of your target market and what needs or wants your product or service will address. This market analysis should include information on your target customer’s demographics, psychographics, and buying habits. 

While there will be many things specific to your company, here are five questions to answer for each of the sections listed above. 

Executive summary: 

  • What is the problem that your company will solve? 
  • How will your company solve that problem? 
  • Who are your target customers? 
  • What are your key competitive advantages? 
  • What is your business model? 

Company description: 

  • What is the legal structure of your company? 
  • What are your company’s core values? 
  • What is your company’s history? 
  • Who are the key members of your management team? 
  • Where is your manufacturing facility located? 

Products and services: 

  • What product or service does your company offer? 
  • How does your product or service solve the problem that your target market has? 
  • What are the key features and benefits of your product or service? 
  • How is your product or service unique from your competitors? 
  • What is the production process for your product or service? 

Market analysis: 

  • Who is your target market? 
  • What needs or wants does your target market have that your product or service will address? 
  • What is the size of your target market? 
  • How do you expect the needs of your target market to change in the future? 
  • Who are your key competitors, and how do they serve the needs of your target market? 

Financial plan:

  • What are the start-up costs for your company? 
  • How will you finance your start-up costs? 
  • What are your monthly operating expenses? 
  • What is your sales forecast for the first year, and how does that compare to your industry’s average sales growth rate? 
  • What are your gross margin and profit targets?

Even if you do nothing but answer these questions, you’ll be well on your way to creating a thorough manufacturing business plan. 

How to stabilize your growth

However, new manufacturing entrepreneurs often fall into a handful of traps when creating their business plans.

  • Not doing enough research  – You can’t know everything about your industry, but you should do your best to understand as much as you can before writing your business plan. This means talking to experts, reading trade publications, and studying the competition
  • Not being realistic  – It’s important to be optimistic when starting a new business, but you also need to be realistic. This is especially true when it comes to financial projections. Don’t overestimate the amount of revenue you will generate or underestimate the costs of goods sold
  • Not having a clear understanding of your target market  – You need to know who you are selling to and what needs or wants your product or service will address. This market analysis should include information on your target customer’s demographics, psychographics, and buying habits
  • Failing to understand your competition  – You need to know who your competitors are, what they are offering, and how you can differentiate yourself. This information will be critical in developing your marketing strategy
  • Not having a clear vision for the future  – Your manufacturing business plan should include a section on your long-term goals and objectives. What does your company hope to achieve in the next five years? Ten years? Twenty years? 

Creating a business plan for manufacturing can be simple. It can be quite simple if you break it down into smaller pieces.

Once you have it in place, staying on track can be quite a bit more difficult. By using  ERP software like Katana , you can track all of your key metrics in real time, avoid any potential issues, and make course corrections as needed.

World's biggest chipmaker TSMC to open second Japan factory with backing from Sony, Toyota

thumbnail

  • TSMC on Tuesday said it will open a second manufacturing plant in Japan with backing from technology giant Sony and automaker Toyota.

In this article

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. on Tuesday said it will open a second manufacturing plant in Japan with backing from technology giant Sony and automaker Toyota .

Japan Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Inc., the manufacturing operation majority-owned by TSMC, will begin building the new factory this year and aims to bring it into operation by the end of 2027.

TSMC said the overall investment in JASM, factoring in a first facility that is set to begin operation this year, will exceed $20 billion. The figure includes the contributions of other venture partners.

The expansion of TSMC's operations in Japan highlights the Japanese government's push to onshore manufacturing of semiconductors , which go into everything from cars and smartphones to military weapons and are seen as critical components in technology, such as artificial intelligence.

Japan is looking to regain some leadership in the semiconductor arena.

TSMC's two factories in Japan will not manufacture the most cutting-edge chips, but they will focus on applications in areas like semiconductors for the automotive industry, industrial uses, consumer and so-called high-performance computing.

The world's largest contract chip manufacturer, TSMC makes semiconductors for companies like Apple and Nvidia and has been courted by many countries to set up operations locally. One of TSMC's biggest overseas projects is a $40 billion investment in Arizona to build two chip manufacturing plants as part of a broader U.S. push to reshore manufacturing.

Farm Machinery Manufacturer Business Plan

Start your own farm machinery manufacturer business plan

Kouros Brothers Ltd.

Executive summary executive summary is a brief introduction to your business plan. it describes your business, the problem that it solves, your target market, and financial highlights.">.

Kouros Brothers Ltd. is an agriculture machinery and implements manufacturer importer and authorized reseller that sells A-Z series of heavy machinery and systems for Potatoes, Vegetables, Cereals, Stubble, and beach cleaning turn key projects and machinery. We have also patented and piloted four innovative machinery and systems the last 6 years for Vegetable and Cereal productions. Is also the sole and exclusive agent and dealer of 10 main agriculture manufacturers in Europe. It has managed to create communication links and to export its series of machinery in Middle East and Syria the last 3 years.

Kouros Brothers Ltd. has an experienced management team with direct knowledge of the industry, extensive research experience, and unique administrative skills. Its team includes Mr. Kouros and Mr Panikos Stella live in Larnaca, Cyprus. Both Owners have compiled an extensive list of customers/potential customers, vendors, and contacts for equipment consignment.

New Opportunity

Last week it was announced by the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment that EU has available 256 million Euro for funding from 65%-80% of all units or producers intending to modernize and use technological advances in order to improve customers’ (Agriculture Producers’) product quality and to be able to export goods into European markets at competitive prices.

We have a good reputation locally, but sales are slow because local farmers cannot buy new equipment every year. With Cyprus’ admission to the EU, this large amount of funding will let farmers buy more and newer equipment. However, the local farmers will only buy equipment they know to be effective; the best way to convince them, in our experience, is to bring a sample of equipment to their fields to demonstrate.

Kouros Brothers Ltd. has good earnings and assets, but we do not have enough cash on hand to buy the wide range of demonstration equipment we need to meet the sales potential created by the upcoming Government funds to our customers. The company intents to employ local individuals and to provide extensive training about its products and services in order to promote its sales. Loyal customers help to expand the company’s business area by word-of-mouth.

We have already identified a list of potential customers and communities that are willing and able to try its new product series. Even more so, the pilot equipments will be used for the upcoming October International fair for Agriculture and Livestock that will take place, at Nicosia, Cyprus. And also, the company plans to participate in the Thesalloniki state Agricultural fair that will take place on the 28 th  January next. As a sole agent and sales representative for Cyprus, Greece and Syria for some series of Wheat planting systems, the company needs to promote its series of products to all available marketing opportunities.

The company is seeking funding of the amount of £50,000 for the purpose of expanding the business. Expansion plans include the purchase of additional equipments allowing the company to promote and to demonstrate its products and services, and also by hiring additional personnel. This loan will be paid back in 6 years, with principal payments of £5,833/year, at 8.5% interest. This is on top of the existing 10,000 loan, which will be paid back on the same time frame, at roughly £1,666/year.

With this new demonstration equipment, and well-funded customers, our projected revenues for Year 1 are expected to reach £274,200, and up to £400,000 by Year 5.

1.1 Objectives

The Kouros Brothers Ltd.  directors believe that, there is a current untapped market opportunity for agriculture machinery because, existing providers of agriculture machinery and implements are too diversified to serve the increasingly specialized needs of the potato segment, by ignoring the crop needs for mechanization of Vegetables, Cereal, wheat and livestock sectors.

The company’s coverage area is constantly increasing, as customers are becoming aware of the company’s presence. European community offers a real business opportunity for such expansion, because now, there are 256 million Euro available for agriculture funding and support by EU agriculture committee, left to the Cyprus Government, to fund the Local Farmers and Agriculture producers for upgrading their production effectiveness and efficiency.

1.2 Mission

Kouros Brothers Ltd. mission is to become THE exclusive full-service equipment manufacturer and authorized importer, sales, and service company in agriculture machinery and implements in Cyprus and to expand its business to Middle East, with the ability to satisfy all needs of Livestock farmers and Agriculture producers.

Therefore, the company’s strategy is to create a limited geographical niche for itself, where there will be no potential competitors. Kouros Brothers Ltd. aims to offer high-quality agriculture equipments and machinery for crop mechanization of potato, vegetables and wheat crops at a price which is competitive in comparison to other premium-quality commercial machinery manufacturers in the local market.

1.3 Keys to Success

Kouros Brothers Ltd.’s keys to success will include:

  • A high level of quality in its product line.
  • A-Z equipment mechanization series for Vegetables, Cereals, Potatoes & Livestock.
  • Maintaining and growing its referral networks to generate new and repeat sales.
  • Significant investments in research and development of machinery with the aim to focus on precisely controlled equipment (Coriander seed, carrot machines etc.).
  • Improving efficiencies of operations and to reduce the crop producers operating costs.
  • Link with Consulting offices for Agriculture and Scientific support to its Customers.
  • The machinery and Systems of Kouros Brothers Ltd. aim to help Cypriot farmers and Agriculture producers to export their products in the European market and to obey all European directives for product quality.

The company combined  40 years of experience in the Agriculture machinery and Implements field to generate a large customer base, where until recently owned 80% of the local Potato machinery market.

The company is specialized into Potato planting and mechanization. After Cyprus accession into EU the company’s Directors decided to expand their field of products and to diversify into Cereal, vegetables and livestock. Kouros Brothers Ltd. hopes to initially make a successful effort to secure start-up financing to implement a new business opportunity. 

2.1 Company Ownership

2.3 Company History

Kouros Brothers Ltd. was founded in Our Town, Cyprus in 1963, to manufacture and to sell a complete A-Z series  of potatoes crop mechanization. The company was formed by the Stella Zither family: Mr. Kouros Stella Zither, Mr. Panikos Stella, and Mr. Andreas Stella.

Kouros Brothers Ltd. has its principal offices and manufacturing unit of 3000 m 2  , located at Our Town, Industrial estate area, Cyprus.

We have good earnings and Capital Assets (the value of the land and store), but do not have enough cash on hand to buy new samples of the equipment to demonstrate their effectiveness to farmers.

Farm machinery manufacturer business plan, company summary chart image

Products and Services

Kouros Brothers Ltd. is a manufacturer and Authorized dealer of imported Agriculture machinery and implements. The company is a manufacturer of the Potato A-Z mechanization such as Potato Planters, Diggers, Harvesters, Inter row cultivators, Taper Machines and Potato Fork-lift tractor mounted machines, Soil Preparation Machinery and Implements, Cereal Machinery and Implements, Transplanting machinery, Irrigation systems, Vegetable small seed planting machines, Wheat and Barley mechanization, Animal food factory and packing systems and Fire Fighting units designed for Agriculture areas.

Kouros Brothers Ltd.  takes pride in having brought several new items for Livestock and Vegetable equipments that were otherwise unknown, such as the manure spreader machines, Cereal mechanization, and soil preparation machines. We also have designed and patented a new vegetable seed planting machine for Coriander, Onions, Beans, peas, broad beans, ground nuts, garlic, etc.

Kouros Brothers Ltd. has obtained the authorization to be a distributor for Beach Cleaning machines (French Patented systems). We are also a sole agent for beach creating technology and systems implementation.

Cereals In the case of cereals, the farmers plant 50-120 kgs of seeds per hectare, while they could have the same results and even more production with 18 kgs seed per hectare. Cereal planting systems can save up to 70-100 kgs seed that is wasted in each hectare without reason.

Stubble Cultivator Implement Stubble is an easy and inexpensive food for cows, sheep and other animals, and it decreases the use of fertilizers by 50%. Farmers who acquire the knowledge to increase stubble create their own forage, with the utilization of stable and barley.

If stubble is left in the fields, it can cause serious problems to the Wheat producers. The result is that soil is overloaded, there is a decrease of the fertility of soil and there is a continuous danger of fires which can burn hundreds of hectares of virgin forests and cause disasters to the environment as happens very ofter in summer. (EU directives have forbidden field-burning.)

Our unique Stubble cultivator machine can increase Wheat production and also can decrease the producer’s operating costs. By not exploiting stubble, farmers waste of tens of millions of pounds per year.

Potatoes The potato producers lose huge quantities of potatoes that are abandoned in the fields without being collected, because they are only 5-10 cm below soil surface. From research, we found out that more than 1-1.5 tonnes of potatoes are abandoned in the soil in each hectare (1,000 t. meters), and in monetary terms we can say that the profit of the producer is abandoned in the field.

Our unique series of Potato mechanization systems and hectare that are exclusively manufactured into our Factory are tested for simplicity and are made with the best materials can warranty the potato quality and Low operating costs to the potato producer. These machines are satisfying the European directives requirements for Potato quality.

Livestock-farming The cows in Cyprus produce 4-5 tonnes milk per year instead of 10-12 tones per year. For solving such problems our company has created last year a Pilot System of Cereals that can increase cereal production up to 1,000 -1,500 kgs per hectare clover for the livestock-farming and mixing of hay and pellets.

Our company has all the mechanization series and the associates with technology and know-how for animal food preparation and production from Cypriot materials such as Lolium, Loutex, Maze, Vetch, AA and trefoil.

Compost Machinery and Manure Spreader. Our Company has well-established European associates with the know-how and the technology to create compost, helping not only in farming sewage problems but also in quality of soil fertilization.

Wheat Planting Machines The Wheat producer, in order to plant seed into 100 hectares, needs to use 250 kgs of Seed and to go to his field at least 4 times. This means 4 times more operating costs and even more so, Wheat prices dropped by 40% with the Cyprus accession into EU.

Our machine is designed such that it can do all four processes–soil cultivation, fertilizing and planting on line, seed cover with soil and corrugation–in one go. The producer needs only 80 kgs per 100 hectares, instead of 250 kgs. Fertilizer is dropped just 1 cm from soil surface, reducing fertilization costs by 50%, because the fertilizer is not moved away by wind or rain.

Seed Vegetable Planting Machines Through research and development over the last 3 years, we have managed to create and to patent a unique Seed vegetable machine for a variety of vegetables such as onions, beans, garlic, coriander, etc. This machine is capable of planting all mentioned Vegetables by minimizing operational costs by up to 70% and can have the products made as per European Union directives as concern Size, Weight and Quality.

The company has already tested this machine for 3 years with several Cypriot vegetable producers and the results were beyond expectations. The machine has already been registered and patented rights are exclusively owned by our company. (Patent No. CY2351)

Market Analysis Summary how to do a market analysis for your business plan.">

The overall market for agriculture machinery and implements is immense.

This business plan has identified over 1,800 agricultural producers and farmers in the local market that have a potential need to maintain and/or win customers or even more so are striving to survive. The funding schemes for agriculture and livestock support set by EU will allow them to stay competitive and this business opportunity is all about it.

In reality, all agriculture and livestock businesses are in need of our products, because there are only 3 potential competitors locally who import or manufacture agricultural machinery and implements. Those involved with Potato mechanization have copied some of our unique series of products, whereas only 2 of them are involved with Cereal and Wheat implements. Kouros Brothers Ltd. has all machinery and implement series of equipments that will allow the Cypriot agriculturer and Livestock producer to stay competitive into European markets.

Our market segmentation scheme is fairly straightforward, and focuses on all agricultural and livestock sectors. The information contained in our customer analysis table is taken directly from the last statistics report published by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry and Tourism website and clearly shows that our largest market potential is more concentrated on the following sectors: 

  • Potato Crop Mechanization
  • Cereals Crop Mechanization, including Wheat and Barley
  • Vegetables crop Mechanization
  • Packing Technology 
  • Livestock Machinery
  • Beach Cleaning Machines and Beach Creation methodologies
  • Fire Fighting Systems for rural areas

For more than 35 years, the company has owned almost 80% of the potato mechanization market. However, due to negative growth opportunities in this sector the last years, the prospects of this sector were unclear. Therefore, the company in order to survive has decided to invest in sectors such as new vegetable machine designs that will satisfy the vegetable producer needs (lower operational costs, low investment costs, simple machines, etc.) and also simultaneously through dealership of the main European agriculture machinery and implements manufacturers to become their sole agent and promoter in Cyprus and the Middle East area.

After 40 years of experience in agricultural machinery and implements manufacturing and design, the company has identified its strengths and weaknesses and has focused on vegetable, Cereals, Livestock and Beach Cleaning implements and technologies, allowing it to offer the same quality of service and support as are afforded by the larger businesses.

The strategy used for years was to bring in selected products, and then attempt to find a buyer. This resulted in inventory overstock, and obsolescence. The company already knows the customers’ needs and wants, therefore, as part of its marketing mix has decided to use the start up funding for buying a series of 6 main machinery that will have the most predicted demand and via marketing and promotion will try to promote its complete series of products.

After sales, services and spare parts provision to repeat customers is also part of our new Marketing strategy. The aim of the new marketing approach is to keep the existing customers and not to start building a new market share. Long-term relationships with customers is one of the key-success factors mentioned earlier and was one of the reasons that company survived and earned their business.

The company expects that by implementing a correct marketing mix, we will increase our share in this market segment by offering the same value-added service and support benefits that its commercial clients demand.

Farm machinery manufacturer business plan, market analysis summary chart image

4.2 Target Market Segment Strategy

Our choice of target markets is based on comprehensive experience within the agriculture industry coupled with an in-depth understanding of the customers’ needs for more than 40 years.

We have taken a unique approach to satisfy our customers needs and wants and also simultaneously to answer all their questions and to air their fears about the effectiveness and efficiency of our products. The company identified that only the on-site testing of the agriculture machinery in the customers’ fields could calm down even the most resistive and questionable customer.

The company cannot be successful by just waiting for the customer to come for ordering. Instead, we must focus on the specific market segments whose needs match more to our series of products. Focusing on targeted segments is the key to company’s future.

Therefore, the company’s focus and marketing message will be not only the customer needs but also the after service and spare parts services offered. A good marketing mix will develop company’s message, communicate it, and fulfill its commitment to excellence.

Developing a market strategy is a departure from the way the company has been managed in the past. We will change the paradigm of being a product- and price-focused sales organization, to that of becoming a customer- and market-focused organization, aiming in sharing responsibility for customer satisfaction. We will accomplish this paradigm shift through the implementation of a balanced and continuous market research for agriculture needs and technology demands.

Planning and implementing specific strategies for each of the seven identified segments will be an ongoing process, and we will will consult with marketing specialists, and our manufacturers, to further refine these efforts as we develop an effective marketing plan.

4.3 Competition and Buying Patterns

Our customers want equipment that works well. They are paying a great deal of their annual income to purchase a machine, and will not buy anything unless they have a clear demonstration that it works, or a recommendation about buying from another farmer they trust. The Cypriot farmer and agriculture producer is the last minute man. He plans to buy a machinery only when it is critical and necessary, and when he identify the need, he wants immediate delivery.

Kouros Brothers Ltd.’s closest competitors are located in Next Town, Other Town and Our Town. They include the following five companies:

All above listed competitors are offering standardized agriculture forbidden and implements for the potato industry and only 2 seek to satisfy somehow other sectors of the agriculture and Livestock Industry.

Strategy and Implementation Summary

Emphasize Customer Service Kouros Brothers Ltd. has already differentiated itself from other manufacturers and importers of agriculture machinery and implements by offering a spare parts and service maintenance to their maintenance, professional advice to customers and custom solutions depending on customer demands.

Build a Relationship-Oriented Business Build long-term relationships with clients, not just selling the equipments. Let them become dependent on company’s assistance to help out in many situations. Make them understand the value of the relationship.

Focus on Target Markets The company plans to rapidly develop marketing alliances with agriculture consulting offices. The market strategy is to capitalize on Kouros Brothers Ltd. ever-increasing customer base and contacts by offering the latest products and after sales service.

The company’s goal in the next year is to exhibit its products in the Agriculture state fair that will take place at Nicosia next October which will allow for expanding the product service area with up-to-date servicing equipment.

Even more so, the company is planning to participate to the 2006 Agriculture machinery fair-exhibition at Thesalloniki, Greece at 28.1.2006 – 1.2.2006. The company as a sole Agent and sales representative of innovative new forbidden for Cyprus, Greece, and Syria will promote its latest wheat planting machine (to be patented in February, 2005), which is not only the latest technology in this field but also can reduce the operating costs of the wheat producers by 50%.

5.1 Competitive Edge

Our competitive edge is our positioning as a strategic ally with our clients, who are clients more than customers. By building a machinery based on long-standing relationships with satisfied clients, we simultaneously build defenses against competition. The longer the relationship stands, the more we help our clients understand what we offer them and why they should both stay with Kouros Brothers Ltd.. In close-knit communities like Cyprus, reputation is extremely important, and word-of-mouth advertising is invaluable.

The following differentiate Kouros Brothers Ltd. from its competitors:

  • Wide Range of Machinery and Implements.   The company’s machinery series satisfy all needs and wants of the Cypriot crop producer. Our latest technology systems and implements allow farmers to produce higher-quality products and give them a better competitive edge into European Markets.
  • Low Overhead Cost. The company’s machinery systems provide a unique, low-cost production which was estimated to range from 30-70% of the crop operating cost.

5.2 Milestones

The following table lists important program milestones, with dates and managers in charge, and subjective budgets for each. The milestone schedule indicates our emphasis on planning for implementation. The most important programs are the sales and marketing programs listed in detail in the previous topics.

Company also is attributing a great emphasis on the 2005 Agriculture Fair which takes place every 2 years in the International State Fair, Nicosia and the Agriculture state fair at Thesalloniki, Greece in late January 2006.

Farm machinery manufacturer business plan, strategy and implementation summary chart image

5.3 Marketing Strategy

The overall marketing plan for Kouros Brothers Ltd. products and services is based on the following fundamentals:

  • The segment of the market(s) planned to reach.
  • Distribution channels planned to be used to reach market segments: radio, sales associates, and Post cards, direct marketing, mailings, etc.
  • Share of the market expected to capture over a fixed period of time.

Market Responsibilities Kouros Brothers Ltd. is committed to an extensive promotional campaign. This will be done aggressively and on a broad scale. To accomplish initial sales goals, the company will require an extremely effective promotional campaign to accomplish two primary objectives:

  • Attract quality sales/service personnel that have a desire to be successful.
  • Attract customers that will constantly look to Kouros Brothers Ltd. for their marketing.

In addition, the company plans to advertise in magazines, newspapers, television, radio, and on billboards throughout the country.

Promotion In addition to standard advertisement practices, Kouros Brothers Ltd. will gain considerable recognition through these additional promotional mediums:

  • Press releases sent to major radio stations, newspapers, and magazines.
  • Radio advertising on secondary stations.
  • Incentives. As an extra incentive for customers and potential customers to Kouros Brothers Ltd. name, the company plans to distribute coffee mugs, T-shirts, pens, and other advertising specialties with the company logo. This will be an ongoing program for the company, when appropriate and where it is identified as beneficial.
  • Brochures. The objective of brochures is to portray the company’s goals and products as an attractive functionality. It will also show to customers how to use the latest  technology of innovations or what it relates to agricultural and Livestock sector.

Investment in Advertising and Promotion For the first year of operation, advertising, and promotion is budgeted at a combined total of £10,000. A fixed amount of sales revenues will go toward the Kouros Brothers Ltd. advertisement campaign.

5.4 Sales Strategy

We will be offering a unique solution that will be introduced to the market through targeted advertising and direct sales. The direct sales force will consist of Mr. Kouros and Mr. Panayiotis Stella with coordination of their seasoned sales associate offices. 

Mr. Kouros Stella will manage the direct sales through personal sales calls and direct visits to villages and customer premises. This market is a long term, repetitive business where relationships are a key component to success.

We will promote the company and its ability to act as an ally to agriculture producers and livestock farmers. We will make marketable  Kouros Brothers Ltd., and keep the reputation as the industry-leading manufacturer it represents.

Currently, Kouros Brothers Ltd. maintains a commercial credit policy for business customers with a net 30-day limit. Most of Kouros Brothers Ltd. customers choose to deal with their own financial sources.

The company offers competitive prices, which are subject to review when necessary. Knowledge of market and competitor prices gives to the company the advantage of pricing in-line with competitors. The Kouros Brothers Ltd. suppliers have and will continue to supply products that enable the company to meet the customers’ price ranges.

Most companies have a 15-20% markup on their merchandise. Having worked for most of the larger companies in the area, Mr. Kouros Stella has an advantage of knowing which companies are firm with the prices and how much others will decrease their prices.

5.4.1 Sales Forecast

The important elements of the Sales Forecasts are shown in the chart and table below. Our sales are based on Government approval of funding for Agriculture and Livestock industries at the end of 2004, which will allow our customers to purchase more new equipment to remain competitive within the new EU market. Our exclusive contracts with European equipment manufacturers, our own patented designs, and our knowledge of the local Cyprus agricultural market and buying tendencies will allow us to capture a large part of that new funding. We project a sales increase over 50% next year. Beach Creation projects include a 10-12% commission.

Direct costs vary by category; in-house items like the potato mechanization equipment will have a lower direct cost than other equipment. We project an increase in gross margin as we gain market share and develop better contracts with our suppliers. Farmers buy equipment seasonally, so sales vary by month.

Financial Plan investor-ready personnel plan .">

The following sections shows in detail that Kouros Brothers Ltd. will be profitable and will easily repay its new loan within six years.

7.1 Important Assumptions

The key underlying assumptions of our financial plan shown in the following general assumption table are:

  • We assume access to the funding necessary to re-shape the company, and to provide adequate initial capitalization for a wider range of demonstration equipment.
  • We assume realistic to minimum sales, against highest expenses.
  • We assume that European funding for agriculture support and development will take place early in 2005 and that the Cyprus Government will release those funds, allowing the farmers and agriculture producers to buy a complete series for their equipment needs.

Other key business assumptions are:

  • As we join the EU marketplace, small farms will find it increasingly hard to stay in business, and only the well organized and standardized units will survive. (Based on trends in other recently-added EU member-nations.)
  • Steady economic growth in Agriculture and Livestock sector, as predicted by the Ministry of Economics once funding for equipment is released by Cyprus Government. 

7.2 Break-even Analysis

Our Break-even Analysis is shown in the following table and chart.

We will monitor direct costs very closely, and maintain them at or below 65% by taking advantage of all promotions and discounts offered by authorized manufacturers as they have tentatively agreed to offer us “end column” pricing as a new dealer incentive. We anticipate surpassing our break-even point once local farmers begin to spend their new government grant money.

7.3 Projected Profit and Loss

The following table shows the projected Profit and Loss statement for the next five years. Our largest operating expenses are payroll-related, to cover necessary staff. We are adding a salesperson, and a welder/fitter and lathe man to work on repairs of existing equipment and to finish the in-house designed patented vegetable and cereal equipment.

Direct costs of goods reflects costs for purchasing inventory and having it delivered to our store. The third row shows additional direct costs for manufacturing our patented vegetable and cereal equipment.

Depreciation reflects the declining value of our long-term assets: 

  • £100,000 value of land and store, depreciated over 29 years (£3,400/year).
  • £50,000 of new demo equipment depreciated over a term of 9 years (£5,556/year).
  • In 2008 we will sell the depreciated demo equipment and buy £30,000 new assets, and depreciate that amount over 9 years (£3,333/year). 

Farm machinery manufacturer business plan, financial plan chart image

7.4 Projected Cash Flow

Cash flow reflects the seasonal purchasing of our customers. Our Cash Balance will increase as customers return to us for repeat sales, after their initial great experiences with us, based on the reasonable assumption of Funding support by Government, which is expected to be 256 millions for 2005-6.  This agriculture development plan for 2004-2006 is supported by European Union for all its new members and this funding support will allow the Farmers and Agriculture crop producers to buy the neccessary equipments and to boost their sales and product quality.

The Cash Flow table shows the projected new long-term loan amount (£50,000), received in January, and the repayment of existing and new loans.

The table also shows how we will use this £50,000, to purchase a new, wider range of demonstration equipment, as long-term assets in January. This equipment is necessary to convince skeptical local farmers about the effectiveness of the new machines – we must have at least one model of each machine, which we can bring to their fields and demonstrate to them. Since this equipment is being used, we are depreciating it over nine years (see “Depreciation” in the Profit and Loss statement, above). We will sell this first round of demo equipment at the beginning of 2008, for its depreciated value, and buy another £30,000 of new demo equipment of the latest models, funded by cash flows from the business. This replacement equipment will also be depreciated over nine years.

Farm machinery manufacturer business plan, financial plan chart image

7.5 Projected Balance Sheet

Estimated balance sheets for the years 2005-2009 are provided below. The demonstration equipment we plan to buy shows up under long-term assets, bought in January of 2005, depreciated, sold in 2008, and replaced with £30,000 of new demo equipment. We project an increasing net worth.

7.6 Business Ratios

The table below presents common business ratios as a reference. Our business is part of the planting, haying, harvesting and processing machinery Industry (SIC Code 3523.01). Industry Profile Ratios are shown in the final column for comparison.
