If your mission involves finding the cheapest cotter pin or rubber washer on the planet we're probably not the answer. On the other hand, if you're sourcing a built-to-order part and are intent on striking that fine balance of price, precision and stable product flow, you're at the right place. Our affiliate suppliers, many of whom have been with us for over 10 years, stand ready to support your efforts. RFQ LINE is in the unique position of being able to offer an impartial assessment of your part or assembly. Whether your component is in the concept, critical design or build phase we can offer valuable input from the factory floor. If you're shopping an existing part or assembly we can save you time and assure you that only the most qualified potential vendors are looking at your prints. Or, if you need cost inputs for a new product, we'll put forth the most competitive pricing that we can.
THE QUOTING PROCESS
It begins once we receive your inquiry (RFQ). An instant RFQ may be created via our GET QUOTE page. More complex or voluminous inquiries may be uploaded as compressed files. After reviewing your RFQ, suitable potential suppliers are identified from within our base of affiliate manufacturers. At this point the basic criteria to be met includes having the proper production equipment, available capacity and any required quality control certifications. Alternate production processes may be identified in order to minimize cost - cold heading vs. machining. Ultimately we will submit that proposal which appears to offer the best overall benefit to the customer. It will be presented on our affiliate supplier's quote form with terms, conditions and lead-times clearly and completely stated.
BEYOND THE QUOTE
The next step is up to you. If our proposal proves to be advantageous and further action is warranted, RFQ LINE stands ready to serve. Beyond the quoting process we provide total end-to-end customer support. From facilitating factory audits to sample part submissions to order fulfillment, we serve as a single point of contact, readily accessible as needed.
Introducing a new vendor into your supply chain is time consuming and poses certain risks - we know, we've been through the process many times. When it becomes necessary, RFQ LINE is here to support your efforts. The quote that we put forth represents the "best" from within a select group of suppliers. Over the years we've helped both start-ups and major OEM's achieve a number of critical objectives in an increasingly competitive global marketplace. How can we help you?
