Lets reverse the question.
Why should you not go into the business of powder coating?
Don’t do it if you have no customers wanting your services.
Don’t do it if there are too many powder coaters located in your market area.
Finally, don’t do it if you have little interest in the art of powder coating.
there are maybe two powder coaters around here and one I don’t think is very good, so I think there’s a market?
I can’t be so sure how big it is. I don’t really have any customers waiting in line for me to open a shop but I love powder coating. I want my own business bad and I heard powder coating is relatively inexpensive to get into. I need training and I know Powder-X has training classes and there’s tons of info available. I’m going to do a lot more research but can you give me an idea of start-up costs? The money is going to make a difference whether I pursue this further or not.
Not a big oven to start with, maybe used gun. I can sub out blasting, can’t I? ballpark?
Fine article, you should read it, there are costs there too but you’ll have to see actually currency value since they’re in zlotys : http://romerpp.pl/lang-en/17-biznes.html
You should check out that company aswell, i dunno if they’re shipping their equipment to north Alabama though.
