JUSTIFICATION OF LOCATION
Best location is one, which is followed by availabilities of
infrastructure facilities with Raw Materials, labour, transportation, Govt. facilities,
if available & marketing etc. All these factors easily available at cheaper cost best
suits the factory site. These factors must be taken into due consideration before
deciding location of the unit so that any difficulties might not rise-up in future.
(a) Raw Material –
The first & foremost factor that affects the factory location is
availability of Raw Materials. Raw Material is of prime importance for the smooth
functioning of any production unit. In this unit 60% of the total cost is material
cost. The wax & thread rolls are easily available in Metoda so this site has been
(b) Supply of Labour –
Labour supply must also be cheap & readily available in ample
amount so that the work does not break down due to labour inadequacy. Making
candles is 99% manual work and therefore the need for semi-skilled & unskilled
workers arises. Here the labour is cheaply available.
(c) Transport Facilities –
A good transportation facility is very well required so that raw
materials reach in time to the unit & finished goods to the market – be it to the
wholesalers or to the retailers. A good deal of proper & cheap transport facility is
needed. Metoda has railways & roadways facility, which help to cater all markets.
At present the target market for my product is Gujarat & Maharashtra whereby
Roadways & Railways facility is easily available from Metoda.
(d) Infrastructure Facility –
For smooth functioning of any unit even the infrastructure facilities
must be properly available. Telephone, Fax, Banking, Insurance, Postal, Water,
Fuel, etc must be available at cheaper & regular interval. These are all available in
The brand name under which “AV” industry is going to manufacture
the candles is “INDIGO”. Indigo candles will be available in red light brown &
These candles can be used during marriages, festivals, to decorate the
hotels and restaurants as the wick, which will be used, is of good quality as the
making of candles is related to quality consciousness rather than quantity.
Later on, perfumed and aromatherapy candles will also be
Market Potential is the scope of your product occupying space in existing
market. Your customers, your market share, your contribution in the market
already existing, share in whole industry – all these aspects are covered under the

These days the artificial lighting concept as vanished and now people prefer
natural lightening during festivals and occasions, especially religious and
marriages. Therefore demand for candles will increase.
As all the classes of people can afford the candles the sales will definitely
increase, as the new concept is very catchy.
In the field of marketing, channels of distribution indicates the routes
of pathway through which goods and services flow or move from producers
to consumers. The route of channels of distribution includes the
manufacturer and the consumer as well as all intermediaries. These
components are linked in the channel system by one or more of the
marketing flows, such as transfer of title of ownership, physical distribution
of merchandise, transfer of title of ownership, physical distribution of
merchandise, transmission of marketing information and the flow of money
in the form of payment of prices and other dues.
The channel of Candle distribution of is as follows:
Dealers & Retailers
The raw materials are the base for the products without which the final
product is not possible. The raw materials used in making candles are:-
• Paraffin Wax-Wax is very essential for candle making. This can be
purchased at a candle making supply store and comes in the form of
granulated wax. Ensure that you buy it from quality suppliers, as it
can have a bearing on the final product.
• Color Dyes and Stearic acid - Use stearic acid to harden the candle.
It also helps the candles release from their molds by causing the wax
to shrink as it cools. Apply your creative ideas and use different or
blended colors to your candles. You can get color dyes from the
candle making supply stores and the use of these dyes depends on the
size of your candle. You can find these dyes in block, chips and liquid
form. Color dyes are highly concentrated and must be used sparingly.
• Moulds- Shop around to find out different designs of candle making
moulds. Moulds come in all shapes and sizes and you can put them to
best use by your creative efforts. You are limited only by your
• Ladle and Spoons - Use handy metal spoons or ladle to stir the wax
and pour it out.
• Wick - There is a wide range of wick types and sizes available in the
market. Choose a wick that is suitable for the size and shape of candle
you are making. The most common candle-making wick is braided
cotton that has been treated chemically to improve the quality of
burning. If the wick is too small, the candle will not burn well
whereas a large wick will cause a smoky flame
Paraffin wax melts at 130 degrees. While the wax melts, measure the size of
wick required for your mold.
Tie the wick to the center of the pencil or dowel.
Suspend the wick in the center of the mold with the help of small weight on
the other end.
Add stearic acid and color in another pot and allow them to dissolve. Once
the temperature reaches 190 degrees, combine the mixture into the pot with
the paraffin wax.
Stir and blend them together completely while maintaining the temperature
at 190 degrees.
Finally pour the contents into the mold and let the mixture cool. As the wax
cools, it will contract and a small well will form around the wick.
Touch the candle; if it is cold it is time to remove it from the mold. Safety is
critical in candle making especially when it comes to wax melting.
Wax melting is one of the dangerous aspects of candle making.
Keep attending to your pans once you heat wax. The characteristics of a
good candle are absence of bubbles or lines and long and even burning of
The color must be well distributed and the fragrance it emits must be
pleasant without being overpowering.

Finance is an important function of business. The application of

Financial planning is an important function of a financial manager whether a

do financial planning for an existing as well as new business.
A financial plan is a statement estimating the amount of capital and

well as short tern financial needs.
0 Long term financing is generally needed for fixed capital requirement i.e.
purchase of fixed assets.

BREAK EVEN ANALYSIS
Break even point is the point of sale at which company makes neither
profit nor loss. The marginal costing technique is based on the idea that
difference of sales and variable cost of sales provides for a fund, which is
referred to as contribution. Contribution provides for fixed cost and profit.
At break-even point, the contribution is just enough to provide for fixed
cost. If actual sales level is above break-even point, the company will make
profit. If actual sales level is below break-even point, the company will incur
loss. When cost-volume-profit relationship is presented graphically, the
point, at which total cost line and total sales line intersect each other will be
the break-even point.
Break-even point is that point of achieving; where total revenue &
total expenses are equal. It is the point of zero profit. If the sales exceed
BEP the business will earn profit & if it decreases from BEP the business
will incur loss. Thus, BEP can be defined as the minimum level of
production & sales & company must attain in order to be economically

financial statements, expressed as ratios, reveals the profitability, liquidity,
solvency as well as the overall financial position of the enterprises.

would help them in taking important policy decisions. Diverse groups of
people make use of ratios, to determine a particular aspect of the financial
position of the company, in which they are interested.

“Profit planning is the planning of future operations to attain
maximum profit or to maintain a specific level of profit.”
Profit is not merely a result of enough financial investment but it is a
result of collective efforts of management, their decision capacity, proper
planning of production and marketing and proper use of professional skills.
Profit means excess of revenue after deducting all expenditures,
inclusive of all cost.
