Pre-investment studies and advice
Any wood products company or a plantation developer needs a detailed and thorough planning process prior to deciding to design and build a new manufacturing facility, or prior to establishing a plantation. Indufor has extensive experience in the various stages of the planning process.
Strategic Industry Segment Planning
The first steps in the planning process are conceptual and depend on the company’s overall strategy and vision. Indufor can help already in this phase in determining which products and which manufacturing or timber growing regions best benefit and suit the company’s overall strategy and long-term vision. Indufor can also help towns and other communities in determining what type of manufacturing would best fit their region and/or whether plantation establishment would be feasible in the area.
Feasibility and Pre-Feasibility Studies
Once the conceptual planning is done, coupled with the selection of products and likely locations, Indufor can assist your company further in developing pre-feasibility studies and bankable feasibility studies for your manufacturing plants and forestry operations. Using an independent third party to complete these studies helps you in securing financing for the investment project.
Indufor’s feasibility studies cover all aspects of the business from raw material sourcing to markets and capital and operational costs. The company has a long experience in various wood product industry segments and timber harvest operations. A particular area of strength is Indufor’s knowledge of the Russian industry and operating conditions.
Once the feasibility studies are completed, Indufor staff can also assist your company in finding investors to your project, whether they are strictly financial or also operational.
Due Diligence Studies
Financial institutions commonly want an outside party to review any business plans and financial projections made by a company, prior to agreeing financing. Indufor can complete these due diligence studies in a prompt and cost efficient manner. Due to its extensive experience, Indufor can compare your projections to other similar projects based on actual plant performance figures.
