Harmful asbestos roofs lead to cancer

Asbestos was a popular fireproofing material once used in thousands of commercial and consumer products. It wasn\u2019t until the late 1970\u2019s that the use of asbestos was banned after the Environmental Protection Agency classified it as a known carcinogen. By that time, however, asbestos had been widely used in a large number of construction products, including roofing products and was a potential source of great harm to those who came in contact with it. Asbestos was forbidden in Lithuania only in 2005. It is estimated that there are around 1 million tons of asbestos in Lithuania which is 96 % of roof material.

Asbestos can cause:

  • Mesothelioma – a cancer which affects the lining of the lungs and the lining surrounding the lower digestive tract.
  • Asbestos-related lung cancer – it is estimated that there is around one lung cancer for every mesothelioma death.
  • Asbestosis – a serious scarring condition of the lung can cause progressive shortness of breath, and in severe cases can be fatal.
  • Plural thickening \u2013 the lining of the lung (pleura) thickens and swells. If this gets worse, the lung itself can be squeezed, and can cause shortness of breath and discomfort in the chest. More about influence of asbestos find here: here

Our Business

KREINER was established in 2009 in Alytus, Lithuania after the team realized that we do not have specialized roofing shops where people can buy roofing materials, get roofers advice and do not have to spend all savings. People used to buy roofing materials in huge construction box stores where they did not get full roof complex and had to waste a lot of time while putting together all the required materials by themselves. Our business was profitable for the second year, therefore, we decided to invest in logistics so that roof complex can reach its customer as quickly as possible from the moment it was received by KREINER. In 2014 we have opened trade salon in capital of Lithuania (Vilnius) and after successful year another trade salon was opened in second largest city in Lithuania (Kaunas).

The production and logistics capacity that we have now would be enough to serve the entire country of Lithuania, however, we still need to open departments in 4 more cities of Lithuania and hire 7 sales agents. In order to implement the 1st stage of expansion, an investment is needed to open trade salons, hire and train new employees and invest in IT selling and logistic systems.

Furthermore, we have a good selling and delivery system so that a customer could buy a roof complex without leaving his home and get it in the shortest possible period of time. We consult, measure, count, get reliable roofers and take care of a customer until the last screw is screwed into the roof. The current system could be extended to other types of roofing or similar building materials trade.

Market overview

The roofing materials market in Lithuania is approximately 60 million €. There are about 440 thousand individual houses in Lithuania and more than 60 % of them have old asbestos roofs. Asbestos is harmful to health and causes respiratory cancer. Because of that recently the Lithuanian Government set aside a lot of money to remove asbestos and even gives 50 % of the money needed to acquire roofing materials.

We are currently selling more than 200 roof complexes per year whose average unit value is 2700 €. Furthermore, KREINER also provides roofing and its materials for the construction of new houses and, according to economic prognosis, people will buy more houses, flats or build their own because bank interests are going to be very low. Because of this reason market also might be largely extended by this segment of people.

Competition

There are many small players in the roofing market in Lithuania. However, most of companies cannot offer timely and full roofing complex. There is one main competitor for KREINER that has a similar conception, but KREINER wins over the price subject while the quality is the same.

2 stage expansion

Our plan is to have 2 stage expansion:

I stage. To open trading salons in 4 biggest cities in Lithuania (Klaipeda, Siauliai, Panevezys, Marijampole) in 2016

II stage. To open trading salons in neighbor countries: Latvia, Estonia, Poland and Belarus starting from 2017
