Transcript of RACE BRICKS
NAME OF THE COMPANY
My name is Raúl Cendegui. We all know, it is a difficult moment to create any industry, but I´ve decided to throw me into a very big project. I am sure this is going to be success. One of the most important features about a company is it´s name. It has to be a nice short name that capture the attention of the person who reads it or hears it. After an intensive period of thinking that lasted four months, I decided that the best name for my company is
. It is a name that consists of the first two letters of my name and my surname:
ndegui. And it is also formed by the product it is going to be produced:
LOCATION OF THE COMPANY
TYPE OF PRODUCT BEING PRODUCED
There are two types of bricks, the paving bricks, the ones that are not hollow and the construction bricks, those that are. In race bricks, we are going to produce only one type. Our products are going to be the construction bricks, those that are hollow. This decision has been taken because of several reasons. The most used type of bricks are this ones, the construction. They have a less weight, they are better sound and thermal isolator than the other type and the walls made of hollow bricks are cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
SOURCES OF ENERGY
The place where the company is going to be situated have to be an important city, and I´ve decided to locate it in the capital of Spain, Madrid.
Our company has the idea to produce bricks all over Spain, and we are thinking to promote a project to export our best quality bricks to some countries out of Spain. All this ideas are great and I am sure they are going to be a success, but we will need lots of sources for that, and not only that, also lot of communication and means of transport, this is why I think Madrid is going to be a great location, because it is very centric.
Also, an important fact about where to situate my company, is the well-being of the population, and a factory in middle of the city, is not very nice to sight and to inhale all the wastes can even affect to the population´s health. We take all this into consideration and that´s why we though to situate the RACE BRICKS company is the suburbs.
Why a bricks company?-You will ask. At first, when I decided to create RACE BRICKS many people were surprised because when you think of a factory, you imagine one producing modern products, but in my opinion the bricks factories are part of the most important types of factories and we could not realize our life without bricks. Of course we could do buildings with other materials but we would have such a big quantity of problems. We do not know it, but bricks are very important. Bricks are everywhere and is an essential product. The more and higher quality we have, the better for everyone.
RACE BRICKS is going to be a big company and we have planned to produce a large quantity of bricks through all the world. This is why the infrastructures needed are lots and of a great size.
The infrastructures are divided into:
The energy used in a factory is a very important fact about it. RACE BRICKS is going to use three types of energy. One is non-renewable and the others renewable. This is because creating a factory is a very expensive project and at first, RACE BRICKS, is not going to be prepared to pay the high prize of the renewable energies. This is why we are going to use natural gas. But this option is only to permit the factory develop and earn more money. With this earned money and the help of the Ministry of Industry, we think we are going to be capable of using the sun energy and the wind power.
This are some more reasons of why Madrid is a good place to locate the factory. The capital city have a very appropriated climate to use this renewable energies.
The Ministry of Industry is going to be a key piece in the formation and develop of RACE BRICKS.
It will help us to invest in all the process of creation of the factory, it will help us, as I said in the development of the renewable energies and also in the integration of our factory in the principal international markets. While the company is working and of course obtaining a benefit, the Ministry will reduce the capital given and will let the company go on its own.
All in all, the Ministry of Industry will help RACE BRICKS to start and will raise the popularity of it to achieve a greater benefit and to let many people in the market, international or not, know the importance and good products this big company have.
We want to respect the environment but I am sure you will understand the difficulties this have.
When RACE BRICKS uses natural gas, we are conscious that is not good for the environment and that is why we look forward to use sun and wind power energy. We expect that the period of using natural gas is going to be short and we will do everything we can, to stop its use and reach the achievement of using renewable energies, which pollute much less and are more environmentally-friendly.
RACE BRICKS need raw materials to produce the bricks, this raw materials are extracted from different places and transported to our factory to be transformed into products. This materials are transported in lorries or vans depending on the quantity of them. We also need transport to send the products to the destinations where they need them. Depending of the distance, it would be by lorry, van, airplane, ship...
Other transport needed is the private vehicles the personal of the factory have. Of course, the people working in RACE BRICKS are going to live near their working place and that is why they use their own car or motorcycle. Even if some person lives very near the factory, he or she can come by bicycle and in that way, the pollution is less. In RACE BRICKS we think that the less pollution, the better.
RACE BRICKS needs several buildings:
-The production plant.
-The store of raw materials.
-The store of finished products (bricks).
-The quality control plant.
-The administrative offices.
-The exposition rooms.
Natural clay minerals, such as kaolin and shale, make up the main body of brick. Small amounts of manganese, barium, and others are mixed with the clay to produce different shades. Barium carbonate is used to improve brick's chemical resistance to the elements.Some clays require the addition of sand.
A wide variety of coating materials and methods are used to produce brick of a certain color or surface texture. To create a typical coating, sand (the main component) is mixed with some type of colorant. Sometimes, some materials are added to produce surface textures.
The machinery is another type of infrastructure which is very important in factories. As you have seen in the video, making bricks need highly developed machines and without them, it will be impossible to produce bricks so fast and with the huge quality they have.
The only necessary technology is for the administrative and production plant and is going to be computers, telephones and private mobiles.
All of these devices are going to be used to direct the factory, this includes:
-Control of the machines.
-Maintain the relationship with other factories related to bricks, for possible unions.
-Maintain contact with the places from where the raw materials are extracted.
-Do and receive phone calls to or from the customers interested in our product.
CLASSIFICATION OF THE INDUSTRY
RACE BRICKS is a capital goods industry. It is also a mixed company.
It is a capital goods industry because transforms semi-finished products into finished products, in this case bricks. Inside the capital goods industries, it is classified as a construction materials one.
As I will explain after, the capital is provided by the Ministry of Industry for a period of time, with the help of my own money, and when the company had launched into the commercial activity and it is a success, the capital will be only provided by me and the benefits of the industry.
STORE OF RAW MATRIALS
STORE OF FINISHED PRODUCTS
USE OF COMPUTER PROGRAMS
In RACE BRICKS we are going to use a very developed computer program called ERP, that means Enterprise Resource Planning.
This program controls if the machinery is working well and how it is does depending on the demand of products. If the products demanded are low, it will slow down the rhythm of the process and if it is a great demand of products, it will increase the rhythm and make the machines go faster to have the products prepared at the right time. Of course, the machines have a speed limit. When this limit is reached, it cannot be faster and the ERP have nothing to do with it.
-Property: 1 person (me).
-Process of construction of the factory: 55 people
-Security: 3 people
-Administrative: 10 people
-Engineers: 5 people
WHY 10 PEOPLE AS ADMINISTRATIVE?
I know that in a company with only 8 workers, it is very strange to have 10 people as administrative, but I though that having a good management is essential, but having a fast one, its is also a very important fact. That is why I decided to have 10 workers in that aspect.
