What is nail manufacturing business ideas?

Our main business idea is for the manufacturing and marketing of wire nails. The nails consist of hard drawn bright mild steel wire with a round head, which helps in driving the nail inside to wood or wall. They are made in various sizes from 1/2Inch to 6 inches.

Wire nails are used for roofing repairing, fastening in carpentry and woodwork, fencing fixing, etc. With the rise in construction activities, both commercial and private, the demand for common iron wire nails is bound to increase. Setting up a plant to make wire nails would thus meet this huge demand.

This business idea is premised on manufacturing 800 kilograms of three-inch wire nails per day which translates into 24000 kgs of wire nails per annum. The revenue potential is estimated at US$3000 per month translating into US$ 36000 per annum with a sales margin of 33% and total investment requirement of US$ 55000 for the first year of project operation.
