So Huskypup, you now have an e-commerce website without your address on it? No telephone number as well?
Nope, we are not an e-commerce site, we are the original manufacturer B2B full container load only producer in several key supply countries such as Brazil, China, India, Italy, Spain, Turkey and so on.
We were known globally by our entire industry way before the www came along. The problem that has been more prevalent since 2008 is that seemingly more buyers are trying to by-pass their tradtional wholesale suppliers yet still purchase in what we would describe as small quantities.
In Europe and North America this is not a problem for us since we can direct people immediately to wholesale stockists there and we still keep their full contact details on the sites however for the main factory sites it has become a royal PITA hence the removal of specific details of some of them.
Genuine trade enquiries are not a problem, Joe Public with his funky DIY job in the expanding Asian market are an issue for us.
I hope that explains why I/we/the company does not need our contact information spreading even more.
