What is an RFQ?
A Request for Quotation (RFQ) contains critical pieces of information that allow us to plan the entire manufacturing process of your parts, assign a lead time, and provide you with an itemized list of prices. It is a package of documents that you submit to us which contains drawings (PDF and DXF format), parts list, materials, special requests, etc. The more detailed and accurate your RFQ, the better we can assess all alternatives and give you the best price. Then, when you are ready to send a Purchase Order, we can start the manufacturing process straight away, allowing for shorter lead times.
What is required for an RFQ?
- Full dimensional drawings (PDF and DXF)
- Part name
- Material Type
- Material Thickness
- Overall dimensions
- Tolerance (if applicable)
- Any other special information such as finishes or quality instructions
- Date required by (if date required is less than 2 weeks)

Conditions for Re-Quote
We understand that sometimes orders may change and we will work our best to get your order
fulfilled as quickly as possible. There are conditions, however, for each quote that need to
remain in order for the quote to stay valid. We may need to requote if:
- The quote is outdated (older than 30 days)
- The part number OR revision has changed
- Finish has changed
- Rush placed on order
- Delivery requirements changed
The Purchase Order must reflect the Quote (with the Quote number on the PO) otherwise we
will need to requote the job. Please note that requoting can take from 1-3 business days. If you
have any questions about the process, please do not hesitate to contact us at
