"Our products are clearly defined, so they are well suited for e-Commerce," explains André Langer, Sales and Marketing Manager at Husemann & Hücking Profile GmbH, a specialist for open or welded special profiles and profile systems under the brand names WP PROFIL and KP scharfkant. The company, headquartered in Iserlohn, Germany, manufactures and assembles steel, stainless steel and non-ferrous metal profiles for a wide range of applications.
"It was already clear to us last year that we did not want to shut ourselves off from the online world and e-commerce," says André Langer. However, it soon became clear that it was impossible to set up our own online shop. "The people acting at XOM Materials quickly convinced us with their market knowledge in the product area of steel and the steel trade. The communication and understanding of our products could be implemented quickly and very professionally".
After all, an online shop also includes other things such as data protection regulations, the uploading of product data, access regulations and customer registration - "managing and keeping an eye on all this yourself is expensive and time-consuming".
