Why buyers continue to return to Applegate for their purchasing requirements

Applegate is the go-to for thousands of professional buyers because we save them time and money, and also give them the confidence that they are getting a good deal. 

Many purchasing teams rely on a familiar roster of suppliers, which certainly has its benefits, but our buyers benefit from the ability to connect with new suppliers to help build new, ongoing business relationships.

With just one platform to manage the procurement process and with the additional support of our experienced team of procurement professionals, we see buyers coming back to use us again and again.

We'll support you from the point you raise your request with us, right through to raising a purchase order with the perfect-fit supplier. 

And the best part...there is no cost for a buyer to use Applegate, and no obligation to buy from the suppliers we match you with.

Reasons to use Applegate for your businesses purchasing requirements


Habitual buying can mean that you may be
paying over the odds, or not getting the best service. Applegate is a resource to benchmark
your costs and make sure you get a good deal.


We have a network of thousands of suppliers to
call upon to get quotes for you. This saves
you time searching and reduces the risk that
you miss out on a great supplier.


Events, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, can cause your regular suppliers to cease production or not
be able to source stock themselves.
Using Applegate gives resilience to this.
