Online marketplace for sealing solutions

21 March 2019

The UK is the first local market for Freudenberg Sealing Technologies' Industrial Supply and Services (ISS) online platform for sealing solutions and components.

The company says constant time pressures and waiting for orders are a thing of the past with its 24/7 availability and local order processing enabling quick deliveries within the UK. 

Freudenberg explains that the platform is much more than a simple online shop, it is an industry-focused marketplace for the UK that includes offerings from trusted local vendors. To make this possible, it has worked with long-standing local trading partners and integrated them as platform vendors in the project. This means a larger selection of products, as well as comparisons regarding price, availability and additional services. The local order processing also speedy shipping.

Freudenberg is the operator of the online marketplace in the background. Only selected, trustworthy merchants are facing the customers on the platform

The range of products for the UK is limited to seals of the Freudenberg and Dichtomatik brands, but already includes more than 40,000 items – from O-rings to pneumatic seals and rod seals. Freudenberg expects to expand rapidly in terms of entering other regions and extending its product and service offering.

Freudenberg says a big advantage of the integration of trading partners is the possible integration of their broad product portfolio, because the success of industrial dealers is mainly due to their enormous range, flexibility and speed. In the future, ISS will exploit this potential to create the first B2B One-Stop-Shop for seals and related industrial components. Everything on one platform – and guaranteed by certified, trustworthy trading partners.

Premium Freudenberg seals are designed for highly demanding applications, while the Dichtomatik industry-standard seals included on the platform are those for applications which are not safety-critical.
