    You could say "If our offer interests you, ..."

"If you will be interested in our offer ..." is possible?
    It is assumed that he will have a feeling when he reads your e-mail. You don't really need to be concerned about when that happens.

    Re: "if you get interested" in formal letter

    Sorry to you Bhaisahab. I have just delated my previous post because I have realized that after "If" you don't use "will" so the sentence "If you are interested..." can have a future meaning. Am I right?

    One more thing. When I write on company's behalf can I use "we". For example:
    "We are the biggest producer of ......"
    ?

    Yes, you can.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
