Over 150 users and over 100,000 lines of inventory uploaded…
Three months after FluidPowerNet was officially launched at Fluid Power and Systems expo in Birmingham, UK, the marketplace now has over 170 users and 118,000 lines of inventory and the wanted pages on are buzzing with activity on the FluidPowerNet members section.
In the last month, ‘Beaumanor Fluid Power Products’ have added 34,000 lines of inventory to the site which has been a great help building the FPN search function – the more inventory loaded, the more of a powerful resource it becomes!
We are really pleased how the last three months have gone. We are working hard on the marketing in the UK and Europe and are seeing companies from different countries join the site every week. We are also starting to see real-life examples of how FluidPowerNet is helping companies…
This month we had a company in Poland (Margo) who was quoted a 19-week lead time from Rexroth for an R900587557 and by being connected to FPN Margo found the part from two companies – one in the UK and one in Germany who delivered the part in 2 days!
We have also had a UK company who was let down by a Festo delivery and needed to find a part urgently, being a part of FPN meant he was instantly connected to 170 companies making it a quick and easy to get his requirement across to so many people instantly.
Commenting on the current position of FluidPowerNet, Nicola Beer, Business Development Manager is excited to see so many companies embracing this new part of the fluid power industry:
“The first 3 months have been great, and we are working hard showing companies FPNs potential. We are currently offering a concierge service, helping people in the industry with their needs showing them how to use the site and helping them to find the parts directly. Hopefully, this will help to give FPN the boost it needs to get the marketplace going.”
Nicola Beer and Matt Woodhead are touring the UK over the summer to meet fluid power companies and demo the site showing companies first hand how our service can help their company.
