A website that will provide a business-to-business European marketplace for textiles manufacturers and suppliers has been launched by a Netherlands-based company.
The new company - www.textiles-online.com - aims to give suppliers and manufacturers a platform on which to advertise their services across Europe and to search for potential new customers or suppliers by area and speciality.
The company intends to advertise the site across Europe via avenues including Google Adwords, fax mailings and relevant trade fairs.
Interested suppliers who register on the site will be given 10 advertisements for free, each of which runs for 30 days. They will then be charged per advert rather than via a monthly subscription. Only buyers and sellers with a valid VAT number will be able to register.
