The biggest change to happen to Transpower Drives in its 40 years of trading, (YES we have been around since 1982). We are opening a web store, Yes the website has been revamped and replaced with THIS bright new One, which has a fully integrated E-Commerce, WEB STORE. The store is fully integrated with our Merlin business software package, this integration brings many impressive advantages, We are able to add any stocked item to the website, within minutes, With all the information you could need. And the biggest change for our customers, it will allow you to see if the items you are looking for are in stock or not, plus the system will allow account customers to log on to their own account and purchase directly from the site, using your part numbers (as long as we have them) and using your own Purchase Order Numbers.
We are also starting a click and collect service, on all in-stock items, So if you see a product on the web store and it's in stock you can order it and once you have had the confirmation e-mail from us you can come over within the hour to collect from our Wellingborough Trade counter. This is just one of the many new and exciting things that will be happening over the next couple of months. Keep your eyes open and remember to drop by here every now and again to get the latest updates on the Transpower Group.
We have just taken delivery of our latest machine for the Apple Gears Workshop, A HURCO TM10i CNC Lathe, This has been a major investment for the group and shows that we are serious about the work that we produce, This Lathe will help us work smarter and more efficiently, to move your job out the door faster, but keeping the Tolerances and the quality of the work to our usual high standard. We have sent Three of the Companys Turners to Hurco to be Trained, and the in house training has been completed, I'm sure it will be a massive asset to the whole group.
