Talking specifically about African industrial growth, it would be true to say that the manufacturing industry is what makes the overall economy stable. Usually, manufacturing companies require a large number of workers, which creates a way of income for the lower class. However, there has been limited growth in the manufacturing industry in Africa which makes it not so economically stable country.

According to Irene Yuan, an African consultant and author, Africa would become the world’s largest manufacturing center and that is because of the population that Africa has. All these factors make Africa the most suitable continent for establishing manufacturing companies. The African government is working to seek new ideas that could attract investors and industries. If it is given proper attention by the government and businessmen in this regard, the wire nail making business can play a key role.

Africa has been thriving to stabilize its industrial sector. Manufacturing in Africa has a growth rate of 3.5% annually, from 2008 to 2021. The very reason that the African government wants to build its economy has paved the way for you to launch your business. That is because the government is willing to invest in public services.

Why Wire Nail Making Business?

The reason we are emphasizing the wire nail making business is that it comes with many benefits. It is a cheaper business to begin with, You will only have to invest money in buying a nail making machine, a wire drawing machine, a nail polishing drum, to rent a space of 100-200 m2 to keep the machines, and a few workers. Initially, you get to sell your product to the hardware stores in your city, within the places near to your reach and after some time you can set up an online shop and sell nails online.

Wire nail making is a straightforward process, the nail production process is not that complex like for making roofing nails, screw nails which needs galvanization, heat treatment etc. There is no secret or personal strategy involved in the wire nail production. All you need to make sure is that you are producing nails of excellent quality. The part that requires strategic input is the selling part. In that case, you can consult some business marketing company.

Success in this business is guaranteed only if you put in the right amount of effort and strategy to make and then market your product. This business turned out to be a success for most businessmen like Patrick Kamau in Kenya, an entrepreneur from Africa. He started his business with 3 sets nail making machines and is now making a good profit from his business.
