Location Identification & Selection
Industry Experts helps determine the best location options for the manufacturing setup keeping in mind your Project Specifications.
Converging to the best possible location options is done by assessing following factors:
- Industry Specific Government Regulations / Entry Barriers
- Location Infrastructure and Facilities
- Available Space
- Availability of Resources (Raw Materials, Skilled & Unskilled Labor)
- Transport Facilities
- Education, Health and Local Transportation Facilities
- Financial Facilities
- Target Markets
Industry Specific Government Regulations / Entry Barriers
Assessment of Industry Specific Government Regulations, Local Regulatory Structures, Environmental Laws, Registrations & Licenses, Manufacturing Policies & Procedures, Trade Laws, Trade facilities (e.g.: Dry Ports, Bonded warehouses, Logistics support), Taxes, Duties, Tariffs & Exemptions, Zoning Laws and Construction laws, Labour laws.
Location Infrastructure and Facilities
Mapping of the available public and private infrastructure at any given location and assessment of conformity with the requirements for the said project. This would include infrastructure & facilities pertaining to Road, Electricity, Water, Communication / telecommunication, Standard Buildings/Sheds if available, Warehousing Facilities, Dry Ports and any other Industry specific technical resources (hardware & software resources) which may be required. Also in the ambit shall be amenities available in and around the area like Residential & Commercial complexes, Hospitals and Health Infrastructure, Telecommunication and Internet connectivity factors, Airports/railroads, markets etc…
This encompasses a study of the natural and artificial features of the available land with the objective of gathering information essential to the planning and construction of specific project.
Information pertaining to available Industrial Plots with sizes is gathered for ascertaining the availability of the required land area for the proposed Project.
Availability of Resources (Raw Materials, Skilled & Unskilled Labor)
Undertaking the mapping of the available Industry Specific Raw Material, Utilities, Manpower including skilled & unskilled labor is taken up to determine the partial or complete fulfilment of the Project requirements.
Transportation facilities for input raw materials and finished goods are assessed including accessibility to Airports, Railroads, Ports, etc.
Education, Health and Local Transportation Facilities
This becomes very relevant from the standpoint of the human resources employed in the manufacturing set up. An assessment of the Education facilities – Primary, Secondary and University level and specialisations like Engineering, Medicine, etc., Healthcare facilities like Health Centres, Hospitals, Medical Practitioners, etc. and local transportation facilities is done to ascertain the feasibility of drawing and retaining capable manpower for the project.
Funding and Investments Opportunities are studied as also availability of Banking Services and assessing the adequacy of the same with respect to the Financial Operational requirements of the Project.
Study of the Target Markets with respect to proximity, accessibility, logistics, supply chains etc….
The above parameters essentially cover the entire gamut of requirements and help in converging to the most appropriate locations for a proposed project.
