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

"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 £125,000 worth of initial orders from around twenty-five 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

"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".

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!

Monitor The Qimtek Sales Leads

Keep an eye on the industry!

By setting up a Project Alert, you will be able to see exactly what sales leads are coming through the Qimtek system, helping you to assess the enquiries in real time. You select the processes & materials that are relevant to your business and when a buyer posts an enquiry that matches your capabilities, we will send you the details via email. At this stage, you will not be able to download drawings or view the buyer's contact details, but it will show you just how many leads you could receive as a Qimtek Supplier Member. 

  • View leads in real time.
  • Monitor work in your industry.
  • Assess the Qimtek Membership.

Frequently asked questions:

How does Qimtek generate their projects?

For many of the manufacturing buyers that use our services, Qimtek is the first port of call when they have a subcontract engineering requirement. The buyer will send us the technical drawings for their project, along with any relevant information required to quote, which we then pass onto Supplier Members with the capabilities that the buyer requires. In addition, we have a team of sourcing account managers who are constantly reaching out to new manufacturing purchasers, establishing relationships and ensuring that fresh companies use our sourcing service continually.

What happens if I win a job?

If you win a job through Qimtek, then that customer is yours to keep! Many of our buyers will put out smaller jobs to our members initially to test the water, before awarding larger contracts to them directly. This is the aim of our service - we want to match buyers and suppliers who go onto work together on a long-term basis.

What are the guarantees?

We guarantee to supply you with a steady stream of relevant engineering enquiries, complete with technical drawings and buyer contact details for you to quote directly. We cannot make any guarantees that you will win business, as we cannot control how you quote and how often you quote. However, we are always happy to offer advice on the best ways to approach each buyer to maximise your chances of winning a specific project.

Can I call and speak to the buyers directly?

Absolutely! We encourage our members to call the buyer wherever possible before quoting, as this helps to establish a rapport. It also helps you to assess whether or not the company behind the enquiry is a good fit for your business.

Can I book appointments or be visited by buyers?

Yes! We actively encourage our Supplier Members to set up appointments with the buyers, as this can go a long way towards understanding one another's setup and establishing a good working relationship.

How quickly can I start working on and quoting the projects? 

Once you sign up as a Supplier Member, you can start quoting projects straight away. We will even backdate any live enquiries that match your capabilities to your account, so that you can speak to buyers within the same day of joining the membership.
