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."

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!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can we contact 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.

If we win a project, can I go directly to the buyer for other quotes?

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.

How does Qimtek generate 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.

How many people are quoting each project?

Each project typically receives 2 to 5 quotes from our members on average; however, this depends on the process, the buyer's location and current market conditions. We also have a few projects that go unquoted depending on the capacity of our Supplier Membership at the time.

Are there any 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.

Do we pay commissions on projects won?

No - we charge a flat monthly fee to receive our projects and no more. You will not have to pay any commission on work that you win.
