Qimtek Supplier Membership

Check out what our supplier's say...

Considering joining as a Supplier Member to access projects and buyer contact details so you can quote? Check out what some of members are saying about Qimtek.

We have been members of Qimtek a couple of times now and use them when we have gaps to fill or on a hunt to grow the business with new customers. We have won lots of individual orders that have gone on to provide us with repeat business. This is a mix of different clients from a wide range of industries and they have gone onto place more than £250,000 of first orders with us.  Whats even better, we are actually doing regular work for several of these companies now – cumulatively they are spending in excess of £150k per annum with us. The good thing about using Qimtek is that I receive the lead, knowing it has been fully qualified before I call and quote the buyer. I would highly recommend Qimtek as a cost effective way of looking for new customers.

Machine Shop Manager, Bacon Engineering Ltd

We signed up to Qimtek in the middle of COVID and the national lockdown.  Their onboarding was smooth and quick, and we have won a couple new customers already.  Qimtek has been a huge help for us winning more work during such a challenging time!  In less than 4 months’ service we have already won enough orders to cover the annual investment.  We would highly recommend them. They are a friendly and informative service with a clear and concise website. A great avenue to connect with specific and potential new clients. Within a short period, we have seen a positive up-turn in orders thanks to the new opportunities created through Qimtek Ltd."

Managing Director of Contracts Engineering Ltd

I joined Qimtek in January 2021 to increase my customer base after having to relocate my business. The aim was to secure work quickly and so far I've managed to secure 5 new customers which is above and beyond what I expected. What I like best about Qimtek is the ease of use of the sales platform and being able to talk to someone if I need any advice. I'd happily recommend Qimtek to other companies.

"Vision Engineering Manufacturing and Optical Services (VEMOS) has been members of Qimtek since March 2020, and have developed valuable relationships a wide variety of clients in a variety of sectors."

Marketing Manager 
Vision Engineering Ltd

The variety of enquiries that come through really suit our business needs. As a result, we’ve been able to form quite a few well-established relationships with buyers, who continue to provide us with ongoing work. The Qimtek team have provided us a lot of support over the years. Just one example, through our association with yourselves we turned over £3.5m with a customer last year that we found at Subcon 2017.  This year (2021) the forecast is for £6m. We would definitely recommend them to other companies!

Director, Warren Services Ltd

As a new business we were looking at ways to find new clients to help us grow. The problem was that we didn't have the contacts to call but more importantly the time as we also needed to run our machine shop. After an initial demonstration of the Qimtek services we decided to give it try and I am pleased we did. We joined in August 21 and by October we have won 7 customers, some of which have already placed repeat and additional work with us. Qimtek is what it is, they find you leads, you log in to your account, download the drawings and speak to the buyers directly. I'd give them a 9 out of 10 for the qualification and information provided as it usually spot on, which helps us when quoting.

Managing Director, Mini Milling Ltd

We are a small subcontract engineering shop in Leeds West Yorkshire specialising in Milling Turning and Fabrication work. We have been members of Qimtek for about 10 months now and already we have secured jobs from 27 different manufacturing companies bringing in nearly £30,000 of initial business. I would recommend Qimtek to anyone who was wishing to expand their business - Our work was mainly West Yorkshire based however the customers I have received from Qimtek are nationwide. We can only hope for ongoing success through Qimtek in the future.

Director, Elliot Engineering 

We have been using Qimtek on and off for a number of years now. When we see a gap in our capacity or we are ready to grow the business again we tend to re-join. We really like the  prequalified machining leads which helps us to find new people to speak to and gives us that all important foot in the door. What's great is that after just two weeks of being members again we have already won one job valued at more than the cost of membership from what looks like a decent potential long-term customer.

Rotec Banner

"We initially joined the Qimtek membership in order to increase our existing customer base. 14 years later and Rotec have secured lots of initial orders via the membership, with many of these customers, going on to place additional orders directly".

Senior Sales Engineer
Rotec Engineering Ltd

Rotec Engineering is an advanced manufacturing business serving clients from many industrial sectors including Automotive, Medical, Defence and Electronics. Our state-of-the-art production facility boasts the very latest CNC fixed head turning, milling, and sliding head machines, which enables us to provide customers with a rapid turnaround at highly competitive rates.  We initially joined the Qimtek membership in order to increase our existing customer base. 14 years later and Rotec have secured in lots of initial orders via the membership, with many of these customers, going on to place additional orders directly.

Sales Engineer from Rotec Engineering Ltd

We have been members of Qimtek for a little over 5 weeks now and received almost 80 jobs to look at. We are pleased to say that we have already won two orders from two different companies that could go on to become long-term customers if everything goes well. As a small business it's hard for us to afford a full time sales person but still needed to be proactive in looking for new business. Performing sales myself is too time consuming as I need to be on hand to quote and help in the machine shop. Qimtek offers us a cost effective alternative, sending us projects directly to my email inbox where I can simply click a button to download the drawings and buyer contact details, saving me lots of time. 

Managing Director, H J Jennings Ltd

With no sales team in place, we made the decision to join Qimtek back in 2007 as it was a cost effective way of generating leads. Since then we have secured lots of initial orders and an estimated £5million worth of business directly. In the first two years, we picked up 2 new clients that, for the next six years, were the largest customers we had dealt with. The membership is very straight forward. You set your lead parameters; you receive relevant projects to quote on directly, then you convert them into sales. Qimtek has been a very good tool for RDL and I have spent the last few years recommending Qimtek to others – some of which are now members themselves.

Troy Barratt, Managing Director,
Contracts Engineering Ltd

We were very curious about Qimtek’s live lead service and decided to take the plunge and join the membership. We have successfully secured in excess of £170,000 worth of initial orders from around 50 new customers. Our favourite aspect of the membership is retaining control over the quoting process as it allows us to pick and choose the work we want to quote for and when, depending on our capacity constraints at that time.

General Manager at Premax Engineering Ltd

As small business members, we are viewing only a quarter of the UK but we have been able to secure 38 different customers who placed over £75,000 worth of initial orders. Some of these customers have then gone on to place business with us directly and have become some of our largest long-term clients. The membership gives us access to areas of the UK where we previously had no coverage. If you are looking to fill capacity and gain new customers then join, there are no downsides to the service. However, when quoting on projects, be realistic, be competitive but above all else be bold and success will soon follow. Thanks to our new customers, who have gone on to become key accounts, we have been able to continue their growth and success at an impressive rate.

Director at Coltech Precision Ltd

Qimtek’s membership provides us with a stream of enquiries, which ultimately allows us to pick and choose enquiries we can and want to quote on. We have been able to turn these initial orders into ongoing relationships. We have visited customers and customers have visited us. If you deliver their job correctly and on time, it’s onwards and upwards from there, and for that reason, I would recommend Qimtek to others.

Warren Services Banner

"We have secured in excess of £535,000 worth of initial orders from over 20 new buyers. We estimate that leads generated via Qimtek have turned a profit of between £2.5million and £3million."

Clive Poyner
Warren Services Ltd

We signed up to Qimtek one week ago, as we felt it would be beneficial in helping us to find new business. Within the first week, we had made contact with a client and manufactured some test bends. The client then came to visit us and we gave a tour of the factory. Within an hour, I had a purchase order for 50 aluminium frames, with scope for more orders in future. A great start to what I hope will be a long and successful relationship with Qimtek.

Managing Director, Alpha Engineering Ltd

Having invested in some new machinery we were keen to find new leads for ongoing work. As a small company, the time and staffing element of finding new work was daunting and our success rate was low. Qimtek allows you access to the right people and gets your foot in the door, saving a lot of leg work! In our first 2 weeks of membership, we had a steady stream of quotations. The easy-to-use platform allowed us to register interest and quote on jobs that were relevant to us and had genuine buying intent! Within the first 2 weeks, we secured 2 purchase orders - both in industries that we had never explored before. The platform is simple and easy to use - after a short online demo, we found ourselves navigating it confidently and ultimately winning work!

 Managing Director, NSK Precision Engineering Ltd

Since joining the Qimtek membership in 2010, we have secured in excess of £275,000 worth of initial orders from over 40 different industry buyers – most of which has led to repeat business. We have moved into more profitable sectors and doubled our sales as a direct result of joining Qimtek.  Competition can be tough sometimes, more so as Qimtek has grown, but we have formed several good relationships with buyers and continue to do so. Whilst I couldn’t put a timescale on this process - as each buyer works differently - we did pick up our first order after just a few months.

"We are happy to say that 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".

Pete Hocknell
Engineered Fabricated Solutions Ltd

Joining Qimtek was a cost-effective alternative to employing additional sales staff. We receive a large quantity of qualified, live opportunities, from a variety of different industries, directly to our inbox. Although we are not fully utilising these leads at present, in just a few months of membership we have already arranged site visits with some really nice companies, as a result of responding to the RFQs.

Sales Engineer from RM Manufacturing Ltd

We they have successfully secured £90,000 worth of initial orders, many of which have gone on to place repeat orders. Qimtek is a very useful tool, which I use every day and particularly enjoy the varied opportunities to offer quotations to new and existing customers. However it is good to know that realistically, it can take anywhere between a few months to a few years to build long-term relationships. We have been successful over the years and have many new and returning customers.

Director at Herve Engineering Ltd

We set ourselves a target to win orders and cover the cost of the membership in 3 months. We surprisingly achieved this by the end of week one and gained valuable new customer contact information. We spent months in 2018 trying to win work with one new customer, but could not get past the front door. Quoting via Qimtek allowed us to not only get the right contact information, but also win their projects and produce their parts.
