FluidPowerNet caught up with Jordy Grimminck, Sales Manager at Maxodeals, to find out more about what they achieved throughout 2020 and what were the main reasons behind it.
Maxodeals, based in the Netherlands, serve customers worldwide by quickly delivering from a stock of more than 20,000 automation and electronic parts. Their vast assortment also includes a range of pneumatic and hydraulic parts.
Despite the unexpected challenges 2020 had in store for everyone, the company has grown throughout the past year and as a result of their growth, Maxodeals have moved into larger premises.
For Maxodeals, which has served customers from Roosendaal (the Netherlands) since 2014, the time had come to expand their workspace.
Jordy Grimminck, Sales Manager at Maxodeals explains, “Last year, like everyone else, we were confronted with unexpected difficulties. Nothing could be taken for granted anymore and all our daily processes had to be scrutinised. Fortunately, together we dealt with this in a creative way.
As a fully online focused company, we were able to maintain our high level of service. Our efforts actually resulted in a considerable growth. Needless to say, we’re very proud of that!”
This development is remarkable considering the situation throughout 2020. What are the main factors behind this success?
“There is an array of reasons behind our success in 2020, for example we have built up a great system at the business, where customers’ questions are immediately answered by phone, chat or e-mail. This has subsequently helped our frequent positive reviews for the business.
Furthermore, all items, both new and used, are stored in our warehouse, ready for direct shipment and orders which are placed before 17:00 (CET) will be dispatched the same working day.
On the other hand, the assortment of parts here at Maxodeals includes a wide range of automation and industrial parts like PLCs, hydraulics and pumps.
We have more than 20,000 different products in stock from a wide range of brands. Thanks to clear item-specific product photos, unpleasant surprises aren’t an issue. What you see is what you get.”
What brands does Maxodeals have in stock?
Siemens, Allen Bradley, Schneider, Parker, Sick, SEW, ABB, Festo, SMC, Indramat, Rexroth, Control Techniques and many more.
So where is Maxodeals new premises and will this space accommodate any future plans?
Maxodeals moved to another location in Roosendaal in the south of the Netherlands, just a few kilometres away from its old site. The new office space of 250 m2 offers room for sixteen workplaces and the warehouse occupies an area of 2000 m2.
Jordy explains, “For the time being, our storage problems are now solved, and we do have some spare space at the back of the office. If necessary, we can always use this area to expand in the foreseeable future!”
