Qimtek has recently reached an important milestone, as we can confirm that over 320 million components have been outsourced through our network to date.

This figure equates to 16 million parts per year, or 4 million parts per quarter.

Now in our second decade of bringing manufacturing buyers and subcontract engineering suppliers together, this figure is testament to the popularity and success of our free sourcing service and encompasses a wide variety of engineering processes. From machining and fabrication through to injection moulding, casting, profiling, electronics, additive manufacturing and many more, we have successfully found suppliers for buyers requiring all manner of services, in a wide variety of vertical industries.

This figure equates to 16 million parts per year, or 4 million parts per quarter.

Although there are inevitable fluctuations in the amount of work outsourced, the total number of parts outsourced through the Qimtek network equates to an impressive average and proves that business is there for the taking for our subcontract members. The difficulties brought about by the worldwide materials shortage and the aftermath of Brexit have meant that 2021 has been a frustrating year for many; however, the figures don't lie and serve as a positive reminder of the continuous buoyancy of the UK's subcontract engineering industry, despite the recent challenges.
