Shipyards, boat builders and prestigious yacht refit firms are just some of the businesses enjoying the benefits of importing from a British consumable supplier. DTC have also begun supplying some big name sailing teams with advanced tools and consumables.
Businesses making the shift to purchasing from UK based DTC have seen savings of up to 22%. To put that into context, an average sized boatyard using €5000 worth of consumables a month could switch to buying from DTC and reduce their spend to €3900, a serious saving of €1100.
"Delivery of the products was easy to plan to suit the build schedule of the container workshops, especially with the proximity to the builder. I would certainly use them again at the next opportunity!"
DTC have positioned themselves as a premium supplier of tools and consumable products specifically aimed at finishing industries working with GRP, GFRP and other popular composite materials. The comprehensive range includes abrasives, air tools, spray guns, primer, lacquer PPE equipment including disposable Coveralls and respiratory equipment etc. DTC also stock a variety of specialist tools for their established marine customers meaning they can provide the complete supply.
"The only downfall associated with buying from overseas is the delivery time, we have overcome this by partnering with reliable airfreight services who can quickly arrange deliveries, usually within a few days of ordering. The high volume of orders heading into all major ports each day allows us to combine orders and split the delivery costs" explained Tim Wakeford, Managing Director of Direct Tool Company.
