A powder coating service is able to generate significantly high gross margins while maintaining a pretty low cost operating and overhead infrastructure on an ongoing basis. The demand for powder coating does not tend to wane during times of economic recession although some companies may see a slight decline in revenue when the demand for construction or new manufacturing decreases. One of the nice things are operating as a powder coating service is available to provide their services on site as well as from a centralized service center. There are also a number of different types of companies that require powder coating on an ongoing basis and, as such – these businesses are always able to generate repeat business after powder coatings have faded or have become damaged over a significant period of time. The barriers to entry for new powder coating service are relatively low given that the capital investment required usually ranges anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000. As it relates to being economically insulated, many powder coating services medical equipment manufacturers, hospitals, and other medical service entities that require powder coatings on their equipment on an ongoing basis. If an owner-operator is able to develop these relationships in the business will be able to remain highly profitable and cash flow positive in any economic climate given the medical entities do not have their revenues decline during times of economic recession. The gross margins generated from services typically range from 80% to 95% depending on whether or not independent contractors are used to provide powder coating services on-site.

Given their economic stability, low operating costs, and sizable tangible asset base – most financial institutions, banks, lenders, and private investors are all willing to put up the needed capital in order to launch this type of business. A powder coating service business plan that features a three-year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page needs to be included. A full industry research examination should be included as well discussing the number of people in the market, several billions of dollars that are generated per year within this industry, average payrolls, and the number of employees hired by the average powder coating service.

Beyond this information, a demographic analysis regarding the types of businesses will be targeted for powder coating should be included as well in this discussion should focus on annual revenues, annual profits, average need per year for powder coating services in terms of dollars, and related information. A demographic analysis will be used during the course of the development of the marketing campaign. One of the things that should also be discussed within the business plan, especially if the entrepreneur is seeking a bank loan, is the tangible equipment that will be acquired via the use of the loan funds. Almost all financial institutions want to see that at least 80% of the assets being acquired will be collateralized. As such, a full equipment list should be included within the powder coating service business plan as well.

A powder coating service marketing plan needs to have a few different components. First, a proprietary website showcasing the services offered, types of powder coating services provided, preliminary pricing information, hours of operation, and contact information should be included on the website. This website listed among all major search engines including Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Many entrepreneurs will take the further step of listing the website among major directories specific to specialized contracting and manufacturing businesses. While this is a significant upfront cost, can drastically boost the revenues of the business with a small capital expenditure.

A presence on social media is beneficial but not required for powder coating service. Companies like FaceBook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn can provide these types of businesses with a platform from which they can boost the brand-name visibility. However, most people seeking powder coating services will frequently turn to search engines rather than social media in order to find these businesses. However, the world is changing and having a presence on social media can significantly benefit a small business like a powder coating service.

A powder coating service SWOT analysis should be produced as well. As it relates to strengths, these businesses generally high gross margins from a low capital cost business. They are also highly scalable and have a target market radius that can range anywhere from 50 to 100 miles. For weaknesses, given the low barriers to entry there are always a number of competitors in any given market that can provide powder coating to the general public. As such, the owner-operator of this business needs to develop ways that can differentiate the company from other agents within the market. This is frequently done by being able to provide services at a lower cost than competitors. For opportunities, these businesses can readily expand by developing additional locations concurrently securing ongoing purchase order agreements with the entities discussed earlier within this document. This ensures that a highly predictable fever revenues will be generated on a monthly basis. Threats, beyond any major change to how powder coating is done more changes to major manufacturing operations, there’s very little that is going to impact the way that these businesses operate on an ongoing basis.

For an individual it is skilled with their hands and manufacturing processes, a powder coating service can be an outstanding small business to own and operate. All the barriers to entry are low the operating costs are low as well and can provide an owner with a substantial amount of cushion as to how they develop their business operations. Return on investment as it relates to the required equity to get going can be substantial. These businesses are going to remain in demand for at least the next 20 years.
