Buyers Reviewing Qimtek

If you are considering using Qimtek to help you to find new manufacturing partners, check out a few testimonials from buyers across a wide range of industries below and start your project below.

Qimtek has made the process of acquiring quotes from engineering suppliers easy for us. We just upload the drawings and specifications on their easy to use drag drop source system or email them to our sourcing account manager who then sends it onto relevant suppliers on our behalf. What we really liked was that the quotes come directly to us, reducing the time required to find a new supplier, especially for that urgent or difficult part. We have uploaded 2 projects in the past couple of weeks and the quotes came in quickly. We have found new suppliers have already placed the orders with them.

"Qimtek offers a really good free service that keeps in touch with me when I need, and helps by sending information from possible suppliers, as well as finding additional suppliers (all within the UK) when my current supplier base can't manage the requirement. After having looked at similar services, the service offered by Qimtek is definitely the best in my opinion."

Purchasing Manager at ETL Fluid Experts Ltd

“Having worked with Qimtek both directly and via my team for several years now, I have not come across any other company like them in the UK. Having attempted to set up relationships with various other procurement companies across the UK, it was always an uphill battle trying to get things moving for even the simplest of components. With Qimtek we just fire the details across to Aaron & the team and wait for potential suppliers to get in contact with their offers.

This unique service offered by Qimtek allows us to reduce the workload of its key employees, whilst still giving them complete control over our own supply chain, as well as introducing them to new suppliers without the need for them trying to spend weeks sourcing for themselves.

We use Qimtek for both our R&D projects as well as our main production. The additional time we save not having to worry about sourcing suppliers has allowed us to significantly reduce the development time of new lines and get them to market quicker.” 

Their service is second to none. The account managers are extremely friendly and helpful – it’s like they’re part of our team. They take the pain away from what used to be a laborious task giving us the additional time needed to focus on other areas of the business and at no cost.”

Engineering Buyer from Nexen Fork Lift Trucks

"In particular, we really like the easy to use Drag, Drop, Source facility. Via this, we have sourced two new suppliers who provided them with high quality end products and confirmed we will be looking to make longstanding relationships with both suppliers. Try it, it costs absolutely nothing – There is nothing we do not like about Qimtek and we will definitely be using the service again!”

We have recently registered with Qimtek within the last 2-3 months, and have found them to be very helpful and professional with our enquiries into finding suppliers for our manufactured items. The company representative and additional team continue finding the right supplier for our needs. They are also very approachable and helpful in finding numerous suppliers, which makes us as a company more efficient in serving our customers across the UK. We at Ductec are very happy with service Qimtek provide us and will continue to use them in the future. Thank you Qimtek for the great service in finding our manufacturing suppliers.

"What initially drew me to use Qimtek’s sourcing service was the vast array of potential suppliers that are available. I have since formed a close working relationship with one of the members I found and now provide them work directly. Give it a try. Qimtek saves you both time and money, so why wouldn’t you?"

Managing Director for Applied Automation Ltd

Having used Qimtek's sourcing service for only a few months, I have already managed to find 3-4 quality long-term suppliers. I have a dedicated sourcing account manager who has saved me a lot of hassle by finding the right suppliers for me, generating quotes very quickly and saving me a few days' worth of work each time. Qimtek were even able to accommodate a non-disclosure agreement on a sensitive project of mine. I simply requested to have the NDA in place and my sourcing account manager took care of the rest, ensuring that the agreement had been signed before drawings were released to individual suppliers and collating the signed documents on my behalf. The process really couldn't have been easier and it was all completely free of charge.I would definitely recommend Qimtek to any buyers who are looking to save time when sourcing new suppliers. 

Purchaser from JP Exhausts

I have used Qimtek sourcing service several times, using a Non Disclosure Agreement and I must say, it works very effectively and does the job on sensitive projects. It saves us a lot of time as Qimtek collect the signed NDA's before releasing the drawings to potential suppliers to quote. I'm pleased with the responses coming back, and will be awarding my projects to Qimteks Supplier Members. I would highly recommend using Qimtek sourcing service with or without the nda, it's been successful everytime
