New B2C online shopping platform for engineering consumables

Home Engineering Electronic - Instrumentation & Control New B2C online shopping platform for engineering consumables

BMG’s online shopping platform now encompasses a newly launched e-commerce service, designed especially for consumers, to boost their buying experience of engineering consumables.

“The success of BMG’s B2B [business-to-business] online platform has inspired the establishment of a safe and efficient means for consumers to purchase engineering components electronically,” said Darryn Wright, Group Marketing Executive, Engineering Solutions Group (ESG) part of Invicta Holdings Limited.

“Our new online facility, which improves access to BMG consumables, forms part of our team’s commitment to meeting exact market requirements. Feedback during the Covid-19 pandemic indicates a preference for online procurement, rather than face to face shopping.

“Through this user-friendly online platform, consumers like woodwork aficionados, DIY enthusiasts, auto restorers, gardening gurus, farmers and plumbers, can purchase the components they require from the comfort of their computers.”

Wright said that like the company’s B2B online portal, the new business-to-consumer (B2C) platform is simple to navigate and allows consumers to browse the site, select the products they want and then pay by credit card or EFT. We have partnered with accredited online payment specialists, Pay Gate, to ensure absolute safety of every transaction.”

Products available online include bearings, seals, fasteners and power transmission components, as well hand and power tools, abrasives, brushware, spanners, wrenches and sockets. Added to this are electric motors and electronic motion control components.

Online shoppers can choose to collect their purchases from the nearest BMG branch or have them delivered. The service is currently available only in South Africa, but the company plans to extend this facility to neighbouring countries soon.
