    Machining-CNC Machining, High Volume

    This client is looking for a supplier to manufacture newly-designed nuts and P-clips, as well as optional pipework, intended for use by a luxury car manufacturer. Quotes are required for initial samples of 30 off of each, as well as annual quantities of 1700 to 1900 off to be repeated for the next 7 years. Please be aware that price and quality of the finished products is very important. Because of the nature of the parts required, material and heat treatment specifications have been provided - along with the drawings - for supplier reference purposes. This project is currently in the quotation stage; however, it is expected that an order will be placed quickly, with sample components required by the end of June. Therefore, this will suit Qimtek members with current or imminent capacity available.
