New Markets For Our Products

Re-posting

Hi

We are a trading company supplying metal products for mainly

automotive use to markets in Europe and USA. These metal products are

sourced from China/India/Korea.

Our USP is low cost sourcing and breadth and scope of supply chain

services. We can design the part, source it, ship it, chase it,

customs clear it and deliver it to the customer.

Current customers include tractor manufacturers, truck transmission

manufacturers, construction equipment manufacturers, street furniture

wholesalers, precision automotive parts fabricators et al.

Our parts are proprietary, i.e. they are made for the specific model of

truck, tractor or whatever, manufactured by our Customer – they are

not generic parts although we do supply some nuts and bolts which are.

The materials we supply are iron, ductile iron, steel, stainless

Steel and aluminium amongst others. This might be in the form of

castings, machined castings, forgings, die castings, fabrications etc.

We are looking for new customers in Europe, Canada, North and South America.

These customers may not be in the automotive sector. There may be

market sectors out there that we have not thought to consider. As an

example it may be that the medical sector might take stainless steel

parts.

We are looking for research which might identify markets for our metal

products that we have not recognised or considered up until now. We

are also looking for more logistics customers i.e. moving goods around

and maybe storing them in our warehouse, but this is not the priority.

The answer I am looking for is a list of market sectors as opposed to

Customers. Industries and markets that would potentially use metal

products in some way.

Is this an area that you can help us with? If so, what would be your fee?

What additional information would you require?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Best Regards

Mikejr

  2. Dear Easterangel

    Thanks for the answer.

    Its not quite what I was expecting though. The sectors you quote are

    the more obvious ones. Some of the metals you have researched are

    elements rather than finshed products – caesium for example. We don't

    get involved in metals per se, but fashion products out of them, and

    mainly the metals I quoted to you.

    What I was hoping for was a little more lateral thinking. By way of

    example, we may supply parts for the railway industry – track parts –

    chunks of machined metal that hold the rails down – that kind of

    thing.

    I suppose part of what I am saying is think more industrial and less

    domestic. Think more component and less finished goods. More wholesale

    and less retail.

    Another example might be machined metal parts as component parts for

    pumps, or for heat exchangers or any other application requiring

    precision components. The main thing would be that these parts are

    used in enough volume to justify developing and supplying them in the

    first place.

    We supply quite a range from small high precision parts stainless

    parts, to very large (1/2 ton) steel parts.

    Anyway this is a useful start and I am very grateful for your prompt

    response. You have given me some ideas already, but your response is a

    bit too generic. I am sure there is more detail to find.

    What do you think?

    Kind regards
