Minneapolis, Kansas (PRWEB) October 13, 2014
G.L. Huyett, a manufacturer, master distributor, and importer of non-threaded fasteners and grease fittings, recently launched a new e-commerce website, and is now offering 5% off all orders over $100 placed on huyett.com. The company also manufactures shafting, turned parts, keystock, and machine keys.
Greg Tabor, Vice-President of E-Commerce and Marketing, explained, “Since the launch of our e-commerce site last year the response has been extremely positive. Customers are able to easily search, view images, and see technical information for our products. This has improved the customer experience and allowed them to get the right item the first time. With this success, we want to encourage more of our customers to take advantage of this resource by offering a substantive incentive.”
The Company’s user-friendly e-commerce website lets their customers search, find, and buy the parts they are looking for 24-hours a day. The site also provides visitors the opportunity to learn, search, shop, and buy when it is convenient for them, while making it easy to find and buy parts that are often difficult to source, hard to manufacture, or difficult to buy.
John Hudson, Senior Customer Service Representative, told us, “Our ultimate goal is to make our customer’s buying experience as easy and trouble-free as possible. We will always have a trained and talented inside sales staff providing exceptional service over the phone, but want to make sure customers know there is an alternate resource for those that like the ease and convenience of researching and ordering online.”
“The. G.L Huyett website is a major timesaver for us! It has noticeably reduced the number of phone calls to check on quantity price points. To say that the Huyett website is a hit is an understatement!”
