How much cost to start a small carton factory?

Since the carton market has a very good prospect, the carton factory’s profit is also good, but the premise is that there must be capital and manpower input. So how much does it cost to open a small carton factory? What does the carton-making machine cost?

Carton factory cost

To set up a carton factory, the budget needed: workshop rental fees, carton packaging machine, management fees, worker wages, industrial and commercial registration, etc.

When you open a small carton factory, you only need basic carton corrugation machines, that is, carton printer, carton stitching machine, gluing machine, and strapping machine, the overall investment will not be very high.

If you only need to process one or two color paper box, the investment is about 200,000 yuan, which is the basic carton equipment cost. If you need to equip other carton equipment: Auto Thin Blade Slitter Scorer (about ¥30,000 to ¥60,000), printing machine (about ¥100,000 to ¥700,000), slotting machine (¥10,000 to ¥50,000), stitching machine (about ¥10,000 to ¥20,000) ), all these machines need at least 800,000 yuan.

In addition, a small plant needs about 200,000 yuan, some office equipment, labor costs, etc., and it takes at least 800,000 to 1000,000 yuan to set up a small carton factory.

Of course, the above equipment costs are only approximate budgets, according to your requirements, specific carton machinery costs need to be calculated by the suppliers.

How much is the profit of 1,000 carton boxes?


If we calculate like this: net profit of an ordinary carton at 0.5-0.8 yuan, 1,000 cartons a day produced, according to 300 days a year, then the annual output is 1,000 × 300 days = 300,000 yuan. If calculated in this way, based on a single carton profit, then the net profit will be at least 200,000 yuan within a year.

What should be paid attention to when setting up a carton factory

While running a carton factory, you must first contact with quality paper mill, to provide sufficient supply. It is necessary to have technical personnel, which can provide effective technical guidance. Especially in the process of initial establishment, and operation of the factory, the maintenance of machinery and equipment requires specialized personnel. In the carton production process, try to connect your customers well, to ensure a good market.

In addition to the above issues, we must also consider on-site issues. The workshop area should not be less than 500 square meters. The area of the equipment is not large, but need to calculate the storage capacity of cardboard, and there need space for stacking and handling cartons. The ground needs to be hardened, dry and tidy, to ensure that the cartons will not be damaged during the production process.
