Your Small Business With The World As The Market
One of small businesses we have is supplying steel flanges for bigger manufacturers who in turn fit them into boilers and turbines and export. Most of our customers are within a radius of 30 miles from our small manufacturing units. Each flange gives us a profit of a couple of dollars depending on the size. Once we get the order, we calculate the weight of the flange, number of machine hours taken to manufacture a flange, and profit per flange. It may look just few dollars per flange but at the end of the month our profit will be in thousands of dollars by supplying a couple of thousands of flanges.
