Manufacturing Price Quotes - Custom Parts and Assemblies
HOW IS RFQ LINE COMPENSATED?
We are not resellers or middlemen. In today's ultra cost competitive manufacturing environment more and more companies are outsourcing some or all of their sales function. Salaried sales staff, advertising, databases and subscriptions to fee-based Internet marketplace services all add to cost. Our compensation structure is purely performance based. We are paid by the manufacturer, a prearranged sales commission pinned to the dollar amount of business that we generate and service. Formal quotations, purchase orders and invoices are issued directly between the manufacturer and the customer. Our role goes beyond that of intermediary. We become account representatives for the life of the project, readily accessible as a single point of contact.
HOW DO I ENROLL AS A BUYER?
You don’t. There is no enrollment, membership or fee. No login, no passwords. You simply submit an RFQ, just as you would to any other potential supplier.
WHAT TYPE OF PROJECTS ARE BEST SUITED TO RFQ LINE’S MANUFACTURERS?
Our suppliers manufacture built-to-order parts and assemblies. We have earned contracts on jobs of all scale. From prototype parts to batch orders to continuous production cycles requiring tens of millions of parts annually. Complexities range from rough castings to complex, miniature medical devices. We routinely quote parts that have yet to be released as well as parts that have been in production for many years.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO OBTAIN A QUOTE?
We will do everything possible to help you meet your deadlines. In exceptional cases we have been able to submit a quote within several hours of receiving an RFQ. Obviously the physical size and complexity of an RFQ is a factor. We will keep you informed as to our progress leading up to the quote submittal.
WHO ARE THE PEOPLE BEHIND RFQ LINE?
Our account executives have many years combined experience as direct, factory representatives. They are routinely involved in all phases of manufacturing over a broad spectrum of industries and processes.
