Case Study: Engineered Fabrication Solutions

Opportunities provided to us by Qimtek have led to EFS securing two key partners whose overall spend will increase our turnover by over a £1million per annum this year (2021) and hopefully increasing in the future. EFS continues to source leads obtained through Qimtek and the quality of their leads along with the suitability to EFS have become a primary source of new business.

EFS Growing With Qimtek

Having utilised the Qimtek service to quote varying projects during difficult times in early 2020, EFS Ltd made the strategic decision to invest in and grow its sub-contract sheet metal service.

The results of which led to capital investment in new laser and punch machinery to support its already well-established infrastructure from its 50,000 sq ft site in Somerset, along with the acquisition of a Business Development Manager tasked with growing the department.

EFS subsequently identified two large scale projects posted on Qimtek through August 2020: A world leading systems provider for enclosures, power distribution and climate control into the IT infrastructure, detailed a critical high-volume component required to support one of its key customers in the social networking industry.

Having opened lines of communication with the Supply Chain Director who posted the opportunity, EFS developed a successful proposal, accounting for the tooling & equipment required to commence and maintain long term supply of the product, with the view to becoming a key supplier for this world leading organisation.
The proposal was followed by a full audit in latter 2020 and pending sample approval the commitment to commence on-going schedule production from April 2021, during this process EFS has also grown its portfolio of products with the customer.

The next opportunity was by a market leading retail storage solutions company, after a long period of negotiation EFS were not successful with initial proposals against this opportunity.

However, as a result of this process EFS developed a strong relationship with the purchasing team and were included on multiple RFQ’s, one of which demanding a fast response and setup to supply circa 20 thousand ticket dividers to UK wide hardware stores through Q1 2021. Following commercial agreement EFS entered a successful period achieving a highly demanding weekly schedule. EFS’s commitment to this project and ability to ramp up production has led to very positive feedback and the work is now dovetailing into the next project for the supply of display units, again direct to hardware stores throughout the UK.

The above opportunities sourced via Qimtek have led to EFS securing two key partners whose overall spend will increase turnover by well over a £ million per annum this year increasing in the future.
