    Tip #3. Rely on more than one source for your materials

    Is it sensible to rely on only a single source?

    What would you do if your current supplier didn’t have in stock the materials you need? It’s a bit like the old cliché of putting all your eggs in one basket.

    We have over 350 leading polymers suppliers in the UK and Europe, meaning we offer our customers much wider options in acquiring their materials.

    There’s another important factor to consider here as well.

    If you have a single, or only a few suppliers, then you may suffer long lead-times to actually get the materials you need.

    With one phone call to us, you broaden your search.

    Let us check stock at warehouses right across Europe, then your lead-time can often be reduced meaning better efficiency and productivity.

    We can offer you all the major specified grades. We also price-check the same product across multiple suppliers and countries, so that we can give you the best price every time.
