In January we mentioned that we were planning some big changes for the year ahead. Behind the scenes, we have been coding thousands of new product, and have had successful discussions with new and existing suppliers about our ideas for the coming 12 months.
We will be making some minor changes in the next month to the current stock services website, adding new products, and grades of material, and will then be on track to develop our new website. The new website is due to be online by the autumn of 2016.
In the short term, we will be out visiting existing customers, discussing our increased range of materials that we can offer to you. This will include pipework in grade 310, UNS S31254 SMO as well as EU origin 304/304L, 316/316L, Duplex and Super Duplex material.
We will also be offering an increased range of seamless and welded fittings. This will include 310 and UNS S31254 materials, as well as a more comprehensive range of stainless steel flanges.
We will continue supplying difficult to source fittings and flanges from our overseas partners, so keep trying us for these enquires. We are experts in airfreighting hard to source items manufactured on quick lead times.
The new Website – what is it going to do?
We have been tinkering with several different ideas when it comes to our new website, and we have some ambitious plans including:
- Increasing our stock ranges in both EU origin and NON EU origin materials available on quick delivery times.
- A re-focus on piping products, with new ranges and grades, again available on short deliveries.
- A client area which will allow users to log into their company account and request copy invoices, test certificates and despatch notes for your orders.
- A continuation of the ‘request a quote’ function. As well as the ability to re validate quotations that have expired.
- We will also be adding an online purchasing function, allowing you to place your orders online, making your payment by BACS, Credit Card or on agreed credit terms.
The idea is to make dealing with us – before, during and after a sale – even easier than it currently is! Surely not possible I hear you cry 🙂
We are also looking for UK and European manufacturers to contact us.
We plan to develop a manufacturing section of the website, which will allow users a quick way to request prices for items that are not commonly held in stock.
This will allow our clients, both new and old, to quickly receive prices and place orders for a whole range of steel products, including pipes, fittings, flanges, gaskets or valves to name but a few. We will endeavour as always to quote unusual grades or sizes of material, including items produced specifically to your drawings quickly and competitively.
For us to do this, we will need to know about your manufacturing capabilities. So get in touch with us to discuss what you do amazingly, and we may be able to open some new doors for you.
We have a few manufacturers onboard already, but will need more as we grow the website in the coming years.
Please share this article with anyone you think may be interested. Click the above image or here to send us an email about your capabilities and we will discuss them with you. Hopefully we can help each other sell more products online!
Speak to you soon, and thanks for reading 🙂
