Textile factory owner: waiting for the second half of the order peak
In the second year of the lunar new year, Wang Xin, who had opened a textile mill in Xiamen, returned to Quanzhou from the old home of Quanzhou. He planned to start work in February 1st, and was ready to start the peak of the order in the first half of the year. Up to now, the factory has not yet started.
Like most provinces and cities, Fujian will resume its working hours in February 10th.
"Although the factory area notifications 10 can start, but many workers are not in place, started and no workers."
Wang Xin's factory mainly produces flat knitting ribs, which are commonly seen as shirts, T-shirt cuffs, necklines and other parts. Most of the orders are from Europe and America. Wang Xin now rents about 800 square meters of factory buildings, employs more than ten workers, a year's turnover of about six million.
Now, Wang Xin is faced with the difficulty that more than ten workers do not have one in place. When everyone returns home on New Year's day, the road is far away from traffic jam and no one comes back. After madding the mask, it is difficult to buy the mask. Wang Xin can only find out from many different channels.
"Employees who participate in social security in Xiamen can take part in the Yaohao collar masks. One can get a few points, and the other is to find friends with channels to store some."
Like many small and micro businesses, Wang Xin's cash flow is only enough to support factories for two months. The monthly fixed cost wage is fifty thousand or sixty thousand yuan and the rent is more than 10000. The rib knitting machine is a subdivision area under the textile industry. It belongs to traditional industries. The threshold is not high, and the competition is fierce at present.
Although the fixed cost is not too high, it will not be able to make the purchase without a long time. Generally speaking, foreign enterprises provide samples, and Wang Xin's factory is responsible for giving feedback to the enterprises in Europe and America after making the finished products. If the designer feels that he can't do it, he needs to continue to make modifications, and if he can, he will place the order directly. From development to order, it usually takes two or three months, sometimes half a year.
For Wang Xin, the peak of the annual order is one after the Spring Festival, one at the end of the year, and it has not yet started, plus two or three months from design to finished products, probably in the first half of the year.
"It's too long to stop working. Once you have orders, you need to buy raw materials such as yarns. This part of the expenditure is big." However, Wang Xin does not plan to scale down and dismiss employees at the moment. "We will start the work in two days and start looking at the order opportunity while we start."
Restaurant owner: cut shop and save yourself
Hotels, restaurants, entertainment and other consumer industries suffered the most serious impact this Spring Festival. Mr. Cai, the owner of three chain stores, lost a lot of money in the epidemic.
During the Spring Festival of the past year, Cai's restaurant was always full. The restaurant's taste accords with local characteristics and innovation, and is very popular among locals. Before and after new year's Eve this year, everyone's mood was tense. At the beginning of the year, customers began to cancel their original plan. Cai always knew that this year's situation might not be good.
According to its introduction, the cost of three restaurants is about 1500000 per year, averaging more than 100 thousand per month, and the wage cost of more than 100 employees is 3.4 million per month.
"During the Spring Festival, we earn 300 thousand a day, 5 days in a conservative way, that is 1 million 500 thousand. It is certain that the Spring Festival will earn less than about 1000000 this year. Before the Spring Festival, the ingredients of the reserve have also been disposed of, and there are also many losses.
Without the income of the Spring Festival, the cash flow of restaurants is even more intense. Now, Mr. Cai's strategy is to shut down stores, lay off workers and reduce the size of the winter.
"The last newly opened restaurant is also being renovated, and now it is suspended. Some of the employees are also dismissed first. They are not sure when they can open the shop. The staff are afraid to come over now, and then re recruit after the turnaround."
Convenience store owner: re opening after rectification
Like Mr. Cai, Ms Shi's convenience store has been shut down, but now it has been reopened.
"During the Spring Festival, masks have not yet been bought, and they dare not let their employees go to work. After the protective materials are put in place, the government will file applications for re opening, which will probably be closed for five or six days."
For Shang Chao, it belonged to people's daily necessities. This time, the impact of the epidemic was relatively small, plus the cooperation with the express delivery platform. For Ms. Shi, although the turnover was not as good as the Spring Festival in previous years, the peace time difference was not large.
There are 11 chain convenience stores under MS Shi. Overall sales were good before closing. After the reopening, the convenience stores are very different. "The convenience stores opened in the community increased more frequently than usual, and the convenience stores in hotels and commercial streets decreased significantly."
Because the convenience store belongs to the franchised brand, it has not received much impact on the supply and logistics aspects. The head office will protect the goods of all stores, though the speed limit is limited, but the impact is not large.
Building materials wholesale boss: the plan was disrupted.
For Mr. Wang, owner of Fujian Tai Long Building Materials Co., Ltd., the plan has not changed rapidly, and the development plan for this year has been disrupted.
"Originally planned to grow by 40% this year, the employees were well stocked at the end of last year, but now it may seem to slow down."
Now, Mr. Wang's company has not yet started work. Before the protection of masks, disinfectant and other protective materials, it has been declared to start. However, the production enterprises in his factory will give priority to work and wait for Mr. Wang's trade enterprises.
The main service of Tai Long building materials is the two level distributors in Fujian Province, and some of the building materials stores in some cities and counties, most of which have not yet started.
"Downtime has a huge impact on us. The cost of our rent now accounts for 30% of the total cost and thirty or forty of the staff's salaries account for 60%. It is also very contradictory now, for fear of the special situation of employees and the loss of employees. "
For Mr. Wang, the cash flow on the account is enough to support for 3 months. Mr. Wang has now received some scattered orders, mainly from hospitals and municipal works.
Last year's turnover was about about 30000000, but wholesale margins were relatively thin. "Although some friends now say that banks can provide loan help, wholesale profits are thin, and they will not consider loans for the time being."
