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.

Subsea Design Engineer, OceanTools Ltd

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

‘Working with Qimtek has been a very rewarding and beneficial partnership. We have managed to increase our supplier base significantly, which in turn, has enabled up to keep our customer’s lead times at a minimum. We started using Qimtek in 2017 and now worth of work with 10 different UK suppliers to date through the system. Using Qimtek means we no longer need to spend time researching and vetting suppliers - instead, we use this time to concentrate on other important tasks and I would definitely recommend using Qimtek.’
