A special word about Charity Appeals
We're sorry that we have to ask you not to contact us for charity appeals, although we're not the mean minded Scrooges that this may imply. We support Charities as much as we are able, but with limited resources, it's important that our efforts aren't diluted. We have chosen The Woodland Trust (www.woodland-trust.org.uk) as our nominated charity, and support their work in reversing the decline in Britain's Woodland Heritage.
As you will see from our main site, we sell a wide range of products related to water treatment, but we're always looking for new and innovative ideas. We'd love to consider selling your product, especially if it meets at least some of the following criteria:
Is it a new design?
Would it appeal to customers who buy our existing products?
Does it have innovative features?
Is it an improvement on what we currently offer?
Does it fit into our existing product portfolio?
Is there a proven demand for it?
Is it good value compared to similar products?
Are there logistical advantages?
Do you offer adequate spares backup, technical information and support?
If you can answer "yes" to at least some of these questions, we'd be pleased to hear from you.
Business Equipment, Supplies and Services
A wide range of supplies and services are used within our business. Keeping up to date with developments in products, services and technology is important in order to ensure we remain effective, productive and competitive and we rely on suppliers to help us do this. Your product or service is more likely to be appropriate for us if you can demonstrate how it would help us achieve any of the following compared to our current arrangements:
Increase our level of customer service
Benefit the environment
Suppliers of products and services to small business often operate in an extremely competitive market, especially in certain sectors. There are several areas, for example Office Stationary, where we are not planning to review our purchasing policy for a considerable time. For further information about our requirements for specific goods or services, please contact us.
By far the best way to contact us initially is by email to firstname.lastname@example.org giving brief details about your product or service and why you think it may be of interest. Also include, if possible, a link to your web site. Please don't send any email attachment, multiple messages or add us to any mailing list. Email spam is automatically deleted unopened. Alternatively, send brief written details to us by post to:Greens Water Systems Longacre Business ParkWestminster RoadNorth HykehamLincoln LN6 3QH United Kingdom.
Initial information should ideally be no more than a couple of sheets of paper. We will carefully review the information normally within 10 days, and if appropriate, we'll contact you to request more details, and to open a formal dialogue. Please avoid phoning us until after we've contacted you. If you don't hear from us, please be assured that we value the information you sent, and the trouble you've taken. Unfortunately though, your offering is not appropriate to us at this time.
How not to contact us!
If you're a prospective new supplier, please don't make your initial contact with us by phone or unsolicited fax. And definitely not on our Freephone Sales Number! Always use email or post instead. We don't have resources or procedures to handle inbound calls other than to our Customer Service Agents. If you ignore this advice, our staff are instructed to simply refer you to this web page and terminate the call as quickly as possible.
If you're an established supplier please think twice before phoning unless it's urgent - why not email instead? It's important for us to keep our phone lines as free as possible in order to offer the high level of service our customers have grown to expect. You could prevent a customer buying one of your products!
Thanks for taking the time to read this page. We hope that your product or service proves suitable for us, and that a long and mutually beneficial business relationship develops.
