SWOT ANALYSIS ON Koch Industries - November 30th, 2010

SWOT ANALYSIS ON Koch Industries : Koch Industries, Inc. is an American private energy conglomerate based in Wichita, Kansas, with subsidiaries involved in manufacturing, trading and investments. Koch also owns Invista, Georgia-Pacific, Flint Hill Resources, Koch Pipeline, Koch Petroleum Group, Koch Fertilizer, Koch Engineering, Koch Minerals and Matador Ranching Company.

Koch companies are involved in core industries such as the manufacturing, refining and distribution[1] of petroleum, chemicals, energy, fiber, intermediates and polymers, minerals, fertilizers, pulp and paper, chemical technology equipment, ranching,[2] finance, commodities trading, as well as other ventures and investments.

In 2008, Forbes called it the second largest privately held company in the United States (after Cargill) with an annual revenue of about $98 billion, down from the largest in 2006. If Koch Industries were a public company in 2007, it would rank about sixteenth in the Fortune 500.

Fred C. Koch, for whom Koch Industries, Inc. is named, co-founded the company in 1940 and developed an innovative crude oil refining process.[7] His sons, Charles G. Koch, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, and David H. Koch, executive vice president, are principal owners of the company. Charles and David Koch each own 42% of Koch Industries, and Charles has stated that the company will publicly offer shares "literally over my dead body".

Koch Industries is also known for its sponsorship of free-market foundations and causes


Strengths

* Leading domestic producer of canned, bottled, and packaged goods in Mexico.
* Strategic alliances with global players and distribution deals for the Mexican market.

Weaknesses

* Multitude of strategic alliances might lead to dependencies and conflicts of interest.




Opportunities

* Ideally positioned to benefit from the growing demand for high-quality branded products as disposable incomes grow.
* Potential to raise production volumes via exports to growing population of Hispanics in the US.

Threats

* Higher prices for key raw materials likely to impact cost of goods sold.
