Manufacturing Great Relationships!

Across all industries, the nature of sales is often misunderstood and engineering is no exception. Many companies put all of their efforts into chasing new business opportunities and bringing new customers on board; however, it's essential that we don't forget to look after our existing customers in the process. Getting a new customer to put enough faith in your business to place an order is often the biggest hurdle to overcome - once this has been accomplished, it's important that we continue to successfully manage the relationship so that it reaches its full potential...

Is The Qimtek Membership Right For You?

If you’re considering joining the Qimtek membership to win new business and grow your customer base, then great! We can provide you with a steady stream of live engineering projects that match your in-house capabilities, complete with buyer contact details and technical drawings.

How to Grow Your Engineering Business.

When it comes to growth, small subcontract engineering companies are often left wondering how to take their business to the next level. As I discussed in my previous blog, expansion can often seem daunting; an abundance of competitors - as well as cash flow dilemmas - may put off many businesses from taking the necessary steps to progression. Although professional expansion can often seem like an uphill struggle, it doesn’t have to be a complicated process. By strategising your intended growth, you can set your own optimum pace to meet your long-term objectives. Here are a few tips to help you successfully grow your subcontract engineering business...

Frequently Asked Questions From Other Suppliers:

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.
