We understand that budgets are tight for a lots of companies right now, which is why we want to make you aware of the free products and services we offer to manufacturing buyers and engineering suppliers alike:

Free Sourcing Service:

If you're looking for a new engineering supplier then Qimtek can help - with absolutely no cost to the buyer. Our sourcing service is 100% free from start to finish, whether or not you decide to work with one of our supplier members. We can source suppliers for all manner of engineering processes, from machining, fabrication and sheet metal forming, through to profiling, injection moulding, additive manufacturing and so much more. All we need are the applicable technical drawings and a few other details to get started - many of our buyers even start to receive quotes the same day!

In addition, we can also cater for sensitive projects, as well as excluding any suppliers whom you may already be working with. All communication remains directly between yourselves and the suppliers, allowing you to assess who is the best fit for your project.
