2014-01-30 17:05:24 - G.L. Huyett, a manufacturer, master distributor, and importer of non-threaded fasteners and grease fittings, proudly announces the launch of their new e-commerce website, huyett.com.
Minneapolis, Kansas; February 1, 2014 – G.L. Huyett, a manufacturer, master distributor, and importer of non-threaded fasteners and grease fittings, recently launched a new e-commerce website, www.huyett.com. The site provides 24-hour access to more than 95,000 parts in over 600 product lines. The company also manufactures shafting, turned parts, keystock, and machine keys.
With the launch of the e-commerce website, the company’s VP of Marketing, Greg Tabor, explains “In today’s market the launch of a new website may not be seen as groundbreaking, but within our niche, we recognized a need for and developed an e-commerce site that provides photos of every product category, individual prices, illustrations, technical drawings, and complete technical specifications of every part we sell.”
The new site makes
it easy to find and buy parts ranging from industrial pins and retaining rings to grease fittings that are often difficult to source, hard to manufacture, or difficult to buy. Timothy O’Keeffe, G.L. Huyett’s CEO recognizes that “More often than not, companies that make these parts are difficult to buy from because they really only want to sell them in high volumes, which makes it difficult for companies to get their hands on what they need without buying more than they need or want to buy.”
By sourcing parts from manufacturers worldwide, G.L. Huyett makes buying small quantities easier. Jessie Baker, Customer Service Group Manager notes, "We already have a highly-trained sales staff that know our products inside and out along with the ability to do custom manufacturing and provide engineering support. By adding a website with all of our product information, we make it easier for our customers get what they want and need even faster."
“Our objectives in developing the site were clear,” says Tabor, “G.L. Huyett has been printing comprehensive product catalogs loaded with information gleaned from decades of sourcing and manufacturing. By augmenting our printed materials with a cutting-edge website we make buying easier by providing our customers with options that let them search, research, and buy when it is convenient for them.”
Huyett.com features sophisticated search capabilities that let visitors narrow their search results by attributes. There is an information-rich Knowledge Vault™ full of training materials, resources, and catalogs geared towards steelmaking, manufacturing processes, and best practices. “New tools allow our customers to manage their accounts online, view their order history, save their favorites to expedite reordering, get quick quotes, and see quantity breaks and negotiated pricing,” adds O’Keeffe. “We hope to migrate our current customer base to an e-commerce platform instead of an ‘email-RFQ-email-quote-email-PO’ paradigm.”
