The UK engineering sector is significant – it pays the wages of more than 5.7 million employees (around one fifth of the UK workforce). And this is a well-paid, intelligent workforce where employees’ average wages are much higher than the rest of the population. The sector continues to grow year on year and this presents more opportunities every year for suppliers of products, services, and solutions to the sector.

The range of engineering companies and disciplines is diverse and, with our list of UK engineering company decision makers, you can promote your company  and what you’re selling direct to the people who have the budgets and the responsibilities to buy your products, services, and solutions by email, phone, and post.

Our database of engineering company contacts contains the following:

  • 54,428 engineering companies (including business mailing address),
  • 54,428 engineering company contact names (including actual job title)
  • 46,207 direct phone numbers, and
  • 21,616 direct engineering decision maker email addresses

Contact us – tell us what you sell and who buys from you. You don’t have to buy the entire dataset from us – we only want to sell you the contacts of greatest value. Within 24 hours, we’ll come back to you with a fully-costed count and a quote.

What job titles do the contacts on the database have?

The vast majority of the decision makers on our database are senior contacts. We’re also able to provide you with information on health and safety managers, facilities management, quality control, and operations managers within these companies.

We can provide you with contact data on people in over 60 engineering job categories. The most popular requests are for acoustic engineers, agricultural engineers, biomedical engineers, chemical engineers, design engineers, imaging engineers, mechanical engineers, process engineers, sales engineers, structural engineers, systems engineers, tool engineers, transport engineers, and vehicle engineers.

If you have a specific type of buyer or category in mind or want to target engineers involved in particular types of work, please let us know when you call.

What data do you hold on the top engineering companies and contacts in the sector?

We hold the following information on our list of decision makers within the engineering sector:

  • contact title for salutations (for example, Mr, Mrs, Dr, Miss, and Sir)
  • contact name (separate fields for first and last name for business contracts contained on the data file at each company)
  • company name (trading name and the official company name at Companies House)

Is email marketing a successful way to generate more sales from engineering firms?

Email marketing campaigns are one of the most successful ways you can present information about your products, services, and solutions to decision makers within engineering companies.

Our list of engineering company contacts is also a B2B email database which your marketing teams can use to send out broadcasts.

Some of our engineering list clients do not have the facilities to send out email campaigns. If this is you, please ask us about our managed B2B email marketing campaign service when you call.

Can you generate leads and sales by cold calling decision makers?

Some decision makers within engineering companies prefer to get to know their potential suppliers personally before making a purchase. Telemarketing can generate a significant number of leads from decision makers who prefer this more personal approach.

B2B telemarketing data is included as standard on your database of engineering companies and your team can begin to use that data straight away. If you do not have your own telesales team but you’d like us to get in touch with the decision makers on the database on your behalf, please ask us about our managed B2B telemarketing service.

Which products, services, and solutions do engineering company buyers purchase?

Many suppliers already take advantage of the opportunities to generate new leads and sales from our database of engineering companies and to build their customer database. Three main examples are:

1. Employment and jobs

The engineering sector is one of the UK’s leading employers requiring some of the country’s most talented people to work in a variety of roles on projects.

The engineering industry is often in competition for quality people with manufacturers. Both sectors suffer from significant skills shortages so, by getting in touch with decision makers and getting to know how many and what type of engineers they need, there is a good chance of placing staff and building a long-term relationship.

You may also wish to use the database if you are involved in graduate recruitment as many employers in the industry run schemes to attract newly-qualified talent.

2. Funding

Can you work with engineering companies to help them find the funding they need for new projects? Or can you help companies raise funding by claiming on R&D tax credits?

The planning and execution of particular major engineering projects is particularly capital intensive and companies need to ensure that they have the funding in place before they can proceed with a project.

3. Management support

Management teams in both engineering and manufacturing companies employ the services of business consultants to help them:

  • access new markets,
  • achieve the highest standards of efficiency in the industry, and
  • for general advice on business, operational, and financial management.

If you or your colleagues have experience in guiding companies in a process- and innovation-driven sector like engineering, our database provides you with the opportunities you need to start new relationships with management teams and leaders by demonstrating your track record in current or previous work roles.

Do you offer a support service to customers post-purchase?

We offer a comprehensive after-sales service to clients for the duration of the 12 months’ usage licence.

Our technical service team will help you with any queries you have on usage of the data. You can send the emails or postal marketing you’re proposing to send to the decision makers on our list to our advertising service team – they’ll get back to you within 24 hours with information, insights, and suggestions on how to maximise the level of responses you receive.
