Powering the cleantech revolution with Enequi

Supporting Sandvik to launch a new coiled tubing service in China
28 days. Not exactly Amazon shipping times. But when you’re delivering tons of stainless steel coiled tube products across China and the Asia Pacific region, it’s pretty fast. At least compared to waiting four to six months for longer length reels to arrive from abroad. Thrilled to help Sandvik launch this new service in the region with a host of digital tools – and now very successful sales!

The aim was to capture the hearts and minds of hard-to-reach CFOs and CTOs – and generating leads.
