Metal products as a business
The production of metal structures is quite a profitable business, but it requires a lot of financial investments and experience. To open a profitable production workshop for the production of metal structures, you should know the basic rules and features of this production.
What documents are needed to run
Initially, it is required to legalize production activities - to register a legal entity or individual entrepreneur. These types of legal forms allow cooperation with large developers. If the goal is to manufacture playgrounds, garden furniture or other uncomplicated structures, then you should choose the registration of an individual entrepreneur.
Basic documents to launch:
- passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation;
- completed application for registration of an individual entrepreneur;
- receipt of payment of state duty - 800 rubles;
It is also necessary to print an individual and open an account with a banking organization. After being approved as an individual entrepreneur, the applicant receives an extract from the USRN.
Registration of an LLC is somewhat more complicated than an individual entrepreneur. In the case of opening an LLC, it is required:
Selecting the direction of production
When choosing a direction, you should base not only on your own desires, but also on some factors that will help you navigate at the initial stage.
- average consumer income;
- market assortment;
- number and type of buildings in the city;
- number of competitive enterprises;
- usefulness for the population.
The most common directions are:
- premises for warehouses;
- sports complexes;
- bus stops;
- production of playgrounds;
- garden furniture;

In general, we are waiting for your wise suggestions!
Hello. A month ago, I began to look for orders for metal structures and give them for a percentage to a friend. n welder assembler. Handy and knows how to design. is a tool. Orders were sent, and not bad ones. He watched and evaluated performed and I was 10%. then he began to be greedy and give less. I decided to start my own business. There are people I can hire too. I will definitely find akazy. But there is a plug - I do not know how to calculate complex structures: awnings, stairs, other structures. I can count the fences. 1) Who needs to be hired to calculate the metal structure: foreman, foreman, engineer? His responsibilities will include visiting the facility with me, modeling the structure, calculating the material and drawing up technology for the installers. 2) How to pay for his work? 3) What are the criteria for hiring him? The rest of the questions as they come in. I would like to read advice from those who have a business in this industry.
Hello, dear entrepreneurs, I have: 1. production site (two workshops of 700 sq. m.) 2. equipment for metal processing 3. tin on the shoulders, as well as straight arms 4. a strong desire to do business, so to speak, useful to society
What kind of steel structures do you think will be in demand? Does it make sense to change the field of activity? How to make the most of the production area (except for lease)?
Hello everyone. There was an idea to open a forging and welding workshop in the Moscow region. Until that moment, I had nothing to do with this area and I don't even know what kind of welding you need to cook)) There is a constant income in trade and construction, but there is an idea that it will expand in this direction (as a hobby), i.e. the partner (his idea) has a good outlet for metal and forged elements. The idea is to buy ready-made forged elements and cook works of art from them in the form of fences with grape bunches, gates, barbecues, awnings, railings, etc. There is already a designer on the staff .. We found a room, although it is questionable ..
There are also small sales channels (points in the system of markets), although I do not take them into account. We will create our own, large channels)) The site is already ready, it remains to fill it with sketches and launch I-direct.
There are a few questions. How is the salary of a welder in the workshop calculated? The options were as follows: For the welding point (?), = The cost of metal, salary of 25,000 rubles. How much does it cost to install products? How is the salary of a molar calculated? What equipment to buy? )
