Make Money Selling Concrete
Builders Merchant Concrete Sales
Sell Concrete to Your Customers
Corporate ready mix companies dominate the market.
Builders merchants have a large customer base selling a large range of construction products to contractors and the domestic construction market.
Builders merchants buy sand, aggregate and cement in large quantities using their buying power and are missing an opportunity.
The difference in the margin to make concrete and to buy corporate ready-mix is about 25%.
This difference in margin allows builders merchants to take market share from the corporate ready-mix companies and make an additional margin.
Builders merchants have yards with space to locate a mini concrete batching plant and the investment is small.
A Fibo Batching Plant can produce up to between 10 to 40 m3 of high-quality concrete per hour.
The batching plant can store up to 50 concrete mixes and can change from one concrete mix to another with the click of a button.
The quality of the concrete matches the quality of any ready-mix plant and conforms to BS 8500, EN 206.
To sell 250 m3 of concrete a month will generate £6,250 profit after all production costs. Finance is approximately £1,500 giving a profit after finance of £4,750 a month = £57,000 per year.
Scale up to 1,000 m3 per month, the profit after production costs is £25,000 and £23,500 after finance and £282,000 per year.
The more you sell the greater the margin.
Builders Merchant Concrete Batching Software
Fibo have developed special software that allows a customer to buy and collect any mix and quantity of concrete automatically.
The customer pays for the concrete and receives a code. The customer then takes his wagon, truck or trailer to the mixer discharge point.
When the code is entered into the control panel of the batching plant, the plant will batch the correct concrete mix and quantity and discharge it into the awaiting transport.
Large quantities of concrete can also be loaded into drum mixers to deliver to the customer as ready-mix.
The software makes selling concrete to your customer very easy.
