Time UK Factory Limited, which was set up to produce PCs and plasma TV products for retailers and trade customers in the UK and Europe, is starting a direct sales operation called TIMEUK.COM
Time UK Factory Ltd. runs all of the manufacturing facilities at Time Technology Park; these were acquired from the administrators of VMT Ltd. VMT produced PC and plasma TV products for Granville Technology Group Ltd, which went into administration in July 2005. Granville was a reseller of TIME branded products.
“Since last year, our aim has been to have a varied range of retailers and trade customers," said Salim Hasan, Director of Product Development at Time UK Factory Ltd. “Although we knew it would be difficult to find a single trade customer the size of Granville, there are many potential UK and European customers that together would, in time, see similar levels of production at this site again. The launch of the direct sales arm – TIMEUK.COM will provide us with an additional route to market, but we do not intend to compete with our trade customers”
He continued “We have employed staff from the local area who have previously worked in consumer electronics assembly and therefore have the relevant skill set. This, combined with the goodwill and support shown by all concerned, including support from the original founders of TIME, will help to maintain this factory as one of the largest IT manufacturing sites in Europe. ”
Bill Slater, Director of Sales for TIMEUK.COM, commented “The factory have had many enquiries from end user customers wanting to buy TIME products direct and we can now fulfil this need. As a separate sales operation to the factory, we will also be able to sell other leading brands.”
He added, “Our aim is to offer high specification and quality products at direct prices. The emphasis will be on offering better value and support than our main competitors, not purely on having the lowest prices.”
Time UK Factory Ltd. is physically, the largest factory of its kind in the UK with massive production capacity. This same factory facility at Time Technology Park has in the past manufactured and configured computers for many well-known brands, such as Tiny, Colossus, IBM and Compaq, in addition to TIME branded PCs. The factory uses the latest state of the art production and management processes to ensure the highest levels of quality and just-in-time delivery to its trade customers. For major customers the factory produces retailers’ own brand, as well as TIME branded products.
Time UK Factory Ltd. provide local logistics and support to European retailers and resellers, the factory is helped by EEC duties on flat screen LCD & plasma televisions, as this allows it to compete very effectively against imports from the major Far Eastern manufacturers.
