Treatstock is a global manufacturing marketplace. Our team has invested all of our efforts developing new features and tools for solving the main problems of B2B manufacturing.
As a result of our research and through observation, we have selected the main difficulties of companies that use manufacturing services:
Waiting for a quote is a common problem, especially when you need to meet a deadline. Lack of employees for the manual valuation can lead to a very long delay, which can be an issue when the customer needs manufacturing services on a regular basis.
Regular manufacturing vendors don't have objective reviews, that's why there is a risk of poor quality. In addition, it is extremely hard to get your money back if the manufactured product has a defect.
It is hard to find a good price without a wide range of offers. There is always a risk of losing money in case of fraud or unsatisfactory quality. In case a company decides to launch its own manufacturing, it will need extra investment for expensive equipment and new specialists.
Each of the problems listed above can be crucial for a company, so we have developed Treatstock. It is a B2B marketplace where manufactures provide a comprehensive array of technologies. As a result, manufacturing has become more affordable and efficient. Here are some of the solutions that we offer:
Treatstock is an online marketplace for customers to get instant quotes and where manufacturing companies can accept orders automatically without calling or writing emails. This way, you save precious time to focus on more important tasks.
Thanks to reviews, our clients can decide how reliable and trustworthy services on Treatstock are. Our support team helps to check the quality of the product before the order is approved. In case of poor quality, money is returned to the customer.

Our marketing team regularly studies the manufacturing market, including CNC machining, additive manufacturing and injection molding. Our research shows that the market is constantly growing and leading consulting agencies prove this in their reports.
The market of CNC machines on a global scale will reach the value of $93.45 billion by the year 2024. According to a report published by Transparency Market Research, the global market of CNC machining will rise from a value of $52.68 billion in 2015 to $93.45 billion by 2024. According to the machining centers market report, the growing demand for fabricated metal products will be a key driver for market growth. The global fabricated metal products market was valued at $1.81 trillion in 2015 and will likely reach $2.35 trillion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.36%. The US accounted for almost 20% of the entire global fabrication metal product market.
According to the leading consultancy firm in the 3D printing industry, Wohlers Associates Incorporated, in 2016 the additive manufacturing industry surpassed $5.1 billion. The global value of the industry is currently estimated to exceed $10 billion by 2021. Metal Powders 2017 Report revealed that the primary market for metal additive manufacturing exceeded $950 million in 2016. Over the next decade, the metal 3D printing market is expected to exceed $6 billion.
The global plastic injection molding machine market is expected to reach $217.6 billion by 2020. According to “Grand view research”, the global metal injection molding market size is anticipated to reach $6.52 billion by 2025. The injection molding technique is preferred by manufacturers as it is cost-effective, requires less production time/finishing, and reduces the wasting of raw materials.
Online shopping has become a rising trend worldwide. Every year, the quantity of online sales is constantly growing. Business customers use Treatstock to get manufactured parts, though it is still only about 10% of overall sales. Treatstock can be one of the key factors that will stimulate ordering manufactured products online.
Our goal is to make the manufacturing process as affordable and quick as possible. Treatstock is focused on further developing the e-commerce ecosystem that benefits both customers and manufacturing service providers. We plan to stimulate global online sales for the manufacturing industry from 10% to at least 50%. To make this happen, we created the digital infrastructure that enables instant quotes, making orders automated. To increase growth, we have partnerships with websites providing 3D models, like Thingiverse, and use referral marketing for encouraging and rewarding customers to recommend products and services. We have also developed easy to embed widgets for service providers. They can use them for their personal websites and public page on Facebook.
