  1. Alcomex at the IDA Expo in Las Vegas

    Comments Off on Alcomex at the IDA Expo in Las Vegas

    In the first week of April, Jan, Marco and Mirco visited the IDA EXPO in Las Vegas. The IDAExpo is the premier educational venue for those who derive their living from the door and access systems industry. The goal was to get information about the North American door market and spring specifications and to approach prospects.

    Our expectations after the IDA Expo

    We estimate 4 million garage doors and 1 million industrial doors are produced in North America. Together with a large replacement market for the enormous installed base the North American is estimated to be 3-4 times larger than the European market. 

    Although the challenge caused by the imperial system, the different wire, the used coating, colour codes, spring ID labelling, packaging and transport overseas the first containers are sold and delivered already.

    Our production

    Our production in Pune, ALCOMEX SPRINGS PVT. LTD is doing a great job adapting to the different product, packaging and handling.

    Order intake, confirmation and invoice is handled by Alcomex GmbH in Goch.

    We do realise that the success mainly is due to the scarcity on the North American spring market and that when the local suppliers have recovered, our position becomes vulnerable.Alcomex is starting a new and exciting chapter in the door spring business! Are you looking for door springs or do you want advice? Then take a look at our offer.

  2. The way to an online “one stop shop”

    Comments Off on The way to an online “one stop shop”

    Alcomex’s aims for a “one stop shop” which in general means that you and other customers can find the right spring for the right projects. Therefore, we help calculating the right spring configuration, forces and mounting space. In order to give you advice on which springs are the best fit.

    It is important for us to give European consumers the same one stop shop experience in our e-commerce platforms as well. We created an e-commerce platform based upon four beliefs for easy use:

    1. Find the right spring easily

    With more than 15 categories and 4000 springs in stock it is easy to get lost. Therefore it is possible to filter and sort on all spring characteristics (wire diameter, mean diameter, material, free length, spring force at loaded length). With this option you will easily work your way to the right spring for your project at any time.

    When you don’t have all the information about the spring you need or when you are still having doubts about the spring choice, our technical engineers are happy to assist you.

    2. A safe and secure platform

    In 2020 we heavily upgraded our e-commerce platforms towards Magento 2. With this upgrade you can benefit from the latest web techniques, as it is more secure and safe to store your data. On top of that the platform has also enhanced speed. Resulting in a faster response to your requests and it makes it even faster to navigate and purchase springs online. 

    3. An easy purchase route online

    With tight schedules and busy agenda’s it’s important to get springs right on time. Our online check-out method supports a quick and easy purchase. You can order the springs you need in two easy steps.

    Step 1: fill in your contact information and way of delivery.

    Step 2: select one of our easy to use payment methods (Credit card, Paypal, iDeal, Ban contact or Sofort banking. After your first purchase, we provide “pay on account” as well).

    4. An accessible platform

    Accessibility is important to us. Therefore it is always possible to order springs as a “guest” so no need to create an account. But did you know that you can create your own account in our online store without obligation or costs? This way you can easily order products from stock, view your orders and make repeat orders.

    We are happy to say we can provide customers and potential customers an online e-commerce platform in which they can easily navigate. It is easy to find the right spring for the right price. The checkout process is plain and simple, we have fast shipping and 5-days a week customer service. 
    If you have not seen our e-commerce platform yet, feel free to take a look.
