How to start a plating business


I am interested in starting up in a brand new electroplating business in South Africa. I am currently a chemistry student in new zealand, and have investors in business secured. my previous electroplating experience is fairly limited but I am quite familiar with basic technical aspects. one problem I have little idea how much a business would start to cost including initial set up for a gold, silver, copper, nickel, chrome and zinc capabilities (about a ton of product a day). I have some contracts in mind and would have no problem finding custom. what I want to know is how do I start a business from scratch, with my limited experience I am slightly anxious about letting down my investors. I am currently 23 and have limited business experience but am confident that I can start a successful business in this area. If any of you are interested in helping me please reply. Thank you.
