Keyword:electric chain hoist   Time:2021-5-22 21:22:41

Dear Sir,

 

Thank you for your mail expressing your interest in dealing with us.

 

For sure, we are interested to know more about your line of products, so we would like you to send us your catalogues, brochoures, line of products and your price list.

 

As well, in the event of future mutual business together, we would like to know the possibility of being your sole agent here in Egypt as this is our prefered way of dealing with our suppliers to avoid the order by order cases or multi quotations for same job with different price range.

 

Awaiting your reply at your earliest.

 

Thank you once again for contacting us.

Dear Sir,

 

Thank you for your reply and sorry for the delays in answering you.

 

We do know your product line from before and we are interested in dealing with you. But, before we do start we come again to the sole agent issue - as we will promote your products and we will spend time, effort and money in this process, we do prefer to have a sole agent agreement as we do have with Munck - Norway to avoid having many companies submitting for same jobs with different prices and having the base price known to all people in the market. I do think that if I do the work then gain the results of my efforts - or you have a different opinion?

 

Looking forward to hearing from you and hope that we will have a long fruitful business relationship to both our companies.

 

Thank you

Dear Amany Elbadawi

We can authorize you to be our sole agent but there are limit for sales volume.

This is a good and long term cooperation way but my priority is to have some small orders firstly to check the market, thanks.

Best regards

Dear Sir,

Once again sorro for the delays, I was doing some survey here regarding your line of products.

 

I have a few comments / questions for you:

 

1- what are the terms of your warrenty for the products and what it does cover. As you know, we are the agent here for Munck - Norway and we didn't face any problem with them regarding warrenty, as items damaged during that period are replaced with no charges to us or the client - we replace first then we do investigate to check the situation.

 

We were dealing with other suppliers like Kuk Dong and Black Bear but, we faced many problems with them concerning warrenty and quality so we declined dealing with them.

 

2- what is the volume of sales if you have expectations for per year, taking into consideration that the first year will be slow due to promoting the products and due to the slow economy at the moment inEgypt.

 

3- any updates or modifications that were carried out on your products lately in the past 5 - 10 years? we learned that some European crane manufacturers were dealing with your products in 2005 and they declined because of repeated malfunctioning after 2-3 month under normal working conditions and, poor quality of parts? any comments on this issue?

 

Awaiting your reply.

 

Thank you

Dear Amany Elbadawi

1, Warranty is 1 year and covers all the problem by quality, normally customers send back damaged item to us and we will repair and send, customers just bear the transport cost for sending back goods to us.

2, We promise 2/3 sale volume as Munck first year.

3, We have already updated products and within 5 years I think no need to update or modification, yes, 2005’s version is the old version and exactly some problem occur, so we update and replace some parts even bearing, cable and electric part and now few problem happen.

Thanks and best regards

Dear Yang,

 

Thank you for your clarifications. We will start promoting your products, but so far we didn't reach an agreement with you. What I do need from you till we reach an agreement is that you do not sell any products directly to any other company or through any channels in Egypt but us. As well, if you do get any price quotation inquiry to send it to us to handle and advise the other party that you do have a representative office in Egypt (us) that will handle his query, we don't like to be working from one side to promote your products and find out that someone else is dealing with it - it is a closed market here and we all know each other so it will be noticed.

 

Kindly send us your suggestions regarding the Agency agreement.

 

As well, we would like to get your factory address and the nearest sea port from where goods are collected so we can get a shipping quotation from your factory to Egypt.

 

Awaiting your reply at your earliest.

 

Thank you

 

Amany

Dear Amany

Attached Sales Agency Agreement.

Pls fill the amount of sales volume (marked in blue) by yourself, which we promise 2/3 of Munck in the last email.

Factory address: Taizhou, Zhejiang, 318053, China.

Nearest sea port: Ningbo & Shanghai

Best regards

Yang

 

11/19

Dear Yang,

 

I will send you the agreement signed in a later e-mail.

 

As for the amount of sales, 2/3 of Munck sales for last year? for the past 2 years here in Egypt as mentioned earlier the economy is almost cripple, orders are not that much as a result of the status that the country reached now. I would like to get an estimated figure from you to what the sales value you are expecting in the first year.

As well, ELK and Munck carries different range of products with different capacities and specs., so I believe we can not relate the 2 sales figures.

 

I have another question for you, what will be stated as country of origin in your certificate of origin? I know that you get your parts from Japan and it is manufactured in China.

 

Awaiting your reply

 

Amany

Dear Amany

I think 200,000US$ for the first year.

Certificate of origin:China.

Best regards

11/20

Dear Yang,

 

The amount that you mentioned in your mail (200'000.0 $) is too high for now for so many reasons, like:

 

- economy in Egypt as  mentioned several times is not that great at the moment and it will not accommodate huge sales - people here do not know what is next 

- there are 2 other competitors in the market of same range of your products with same prices and less, and the goods are of Taiwan origin, which customers here prefer than goods of Chinese origin

- there is no list of references yet for your products - which we will be working on - and the brand name and products range has to be promoted here excessively - with other European brands, American, Korean and Taiwanese it will be tough to promote ELK in the Egyptian market. (this require time, good plans, promotions and assistance)

 

If it is feasible, then we start promoting your products and take a time period of one year to see the total amount of sales during this period. But, we need your full support regarding the quality of items to be presented in the market to help us build ELK name in the market and the full trust of our clients in the products.

 

If the above suits you, we hope so, then we will need paper brochures and catalogues for ELK products.

 

Awaiting your reply.

Dear Amany

What’s your idea sales volumes?

Best regards

Yang

 

11/22

Dear Yang,

 

Due to the current situation here, I can not give you an estimation to the first year sales. But, I have an offer for you, we will not sign an agency agreement with you at the moment instead, we will start promoting your products and accumulate our progress from now till December 31, 2013. If we are both satisfied with the outcome, the products, quality and services then we will proceed with the agency agreement.

 

If the above suites you then kindly,

- send us any inquiries that you will receive for the Egyptian market

- reply to all requests that you do have an agent inEgyptand refer us (e-mails) to them and advise us to contact them

- send us your products catalogs

- advise if your prices are net or we do have a discount on it

 

Awaiting your reply

 

Thank you

11/24

Dear Yang,

 

As I can't promise you a total sales value for the first year - and you are not accepting to give me one year trial without submitting offers to any one that asks you - I am stuck with 2 options:

 

1- either for you to accept the that we do sign the agency agreement without an estimated first year sales value - and respect the idea that you refer to us as your agent for this year so my efforts for promoting your products will not go in-vane and someone else will just gain from my work, or

 

2- forget about the agreement and we will deal with you on a job by job bases 

 

Kindly advise

 

Thank you

 

Amany
