Interlocking Concrete Block Business Case
Potential Profit £30,000 Per Month
The business case for manufacturing interlocking blocks is below.
If you run a C1200 for two hour per day it will produce 30m3 of concrete.
With a sales price of £120m3 the sales are £3,600 per day and £72,000 sales per month.
Less the cost of production of around £70m3 giving a gross margin of £30,000 per month. (See the C1200 business case for production costs of concrete).
Even if you give them away for £100m3 the gross margin is still £18,000 per month.
In this example the C1200 is only running at 30% capacity but can make a good profit. In reality you will work the machine harder producing concrete to fill other moulds or sell it to small contractors.
The art of business is to sell at a premium and competitive price into different market segments. Take a look at our concrete block marketing ideas.
