Australia’s manufacturing industry has been rapidly evolving over the last 10 years with the accessibility of CNC machines giving rise to a general increase of cost effective onshore custom engineering through both the existing players as well as the new crop of more specialised custom engineering shops entering the market to support demand.
This has seen an industry that traditionally worked to a more methodical pace, become much more dynamic, knowledgeable and competitive, which naturally flows on to demand for quick turn arounds on information, pricing and sourcing engineering materials.
Observing this trend Craig (ePols founder) recognised that the traditional model of reps on the road and bricks and mortar wasn’t going to cut it. With the new breed of engineering firms having greater expertise in-house, and working to tighter time frames, meant that having transparent and on demand access to material supply, timings and reliable logistics, would be a game changing advantage for the new breed of progressive engineering firms.
With these core insights firmly in place, the ePol procurement system was developed with an emphasis on delivering these key functional benefits to our customers – Since launch we’ve never looked back, developing an enviable industry reputation and loyal customer base who wouldn’t dream of going elsewhere.
Now in our next phase of growth, we’re continuing to listen to our customers’ needs and are continually developing and refining our offer, with the goal of helping our local manufacturing industry grow further and be their partner of choice.
