Nurtured our initial order into a £60k per annum account

30 Apr 2015 by Stafford Engineering Services Ltd

Stafford Engineering Services Ltd are a typical small to medium sized subcontract machine shop who join us as and when they need to have a new business drive.  


'We have been members of Qimtek on and off since 2010. We are pleased to say that during our 1st term as members, we were given the opportunity to quote on a job that came in from one of the largest Machine Tool Suppliers in the world.


Quick Qimtek

05 Nov 2010 by Stafford Engineering Services Ltd

Only 1 month after becoming a member this company had won 3 jobs.

The first was won on response time and professionalism as they were 8% more expensive than the cheapest quote. They worked through the night to complete the work on time but this has concreted a good working relationship, and the buyer has assured them they will be using them again in the future. The second was a small, quick turn around job.
