I am writing to you because we have been having a bit of trouble with one of our suppliers who makes the lightweight batteries we use to power our vehicles. I am pretty sure you don’t have a local distributor of your products in this country, which I am writing to you direct to see if you can help us out. I did try to call, but you weren’t available
We require 4,800 units and delivery must be completely by 15 January, 20. A full specification of our requirements is given on the attached sheet, together with our technical brochure.
I would appreciate it if you could quote us your best CIF price, giving a full specification of your product and shipping date. Of course our technical department would need nto have some samples of the batteries to test in our laboratories before we would place a firm order.
We usually deal with new suppliers on the basis of payment in our currency by confirmed irrevocable letter of credit.
Assuming the lab tests go well, and you can quote us a competitive price, we would certainly be able to place more substantial orders on a regular basis.
I will be out of the office for a couple of weeks from tomorrow. In the meantime, do get in touch with one of my assistants if you need any more information
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Give my regards to Jeanne and the kids
Fred A. North , Buying Manager
