Seller & Buyer Testimonials
As one of the early users of the platform, we recognized the value provided through more efficient sales processes. Vanilla Steel is especially helpful in targeting buyers outside our core markets, allowing us to offer our material to buyers we typically do not address through our regular sales channels.
We have been working with Vanilla Steel for almost 2 years. First we sold our second choice there. After creating our own digital sales department at www.stahlo.de, we also offer Prime material now. Sometimes we even try to pioneer the steel market. By offering Green Steel with Vanilla Steel, we actively promote transparency with our own CO2 label and jointly reduce carbon emissions.
This platform has allowed us to expand our customer base in Central and Southern Europe. Vanilla Steel supports us in solving problems with the end customer and offers us the possibility of supplying a wide range of products, reinforcing our commitment to online sales.
Juan Silvestre Latorre
We understood the potential of this platform from the very beginning and after two years of collaboration, we can confirm that working with Vanilla Steel is the right choice to reduce our inventory levels and to find new customers.
Stock & Assortment Manager
We have been working with Vanilla Steel both as buyer and seller for a few months, completing a number of transactions almost on a weekly basis. We recognise the value of the platform in promoting and encouraging networking among different players in the industry. Particularly on the buy-side, Vanilla Steel is for us a valid resource to find opportunities and establish relationships with new partners.
Through Vanilla Steel we, end-users, can finally experience transparency in the steel-buying process. Finally a “catalogue-like” experience with transparent prices without the need to ask for countless offers from different suppliers.
