Qimtek uses its own service and found Roo Engineering

Qimtek recently used its own sourcing service to find a supplier for our promotional phone holders. Handed out at various industry events we exhibit at throughout the year, our branded phone holders are a popular promotional item. Therefore, it goes without saying that the quality of the holders has to be extremely high to reflect the standard of service our buyers can expect to receive from our members. The sourcing process gives us a valuable opportunity to test the quality of our membership, from the quotes we receive right through to the final product.
