    Re: Letter for my supplier.

    Hello, and welcome to Using English.

    1. We don't use "Good afternoon!" in a business letter.
    2. Not every business person is male. Do you know the name of your contact at the supplier? In my company, we know who we work with. If you don't, use "Dear Sir or Madam."
    3. "Regarding the material" is not clear enough. They may sell many things to you. I don't know what a "water shop" is.
    4. I don't know what MTC is. I don't know if it's countable or not. I can't help you rewrite this without knowing this.

    Not knowing what you really want to say, I've tried my best anyway:

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    Regarding the materials we are obtaining from you for the [better name of project], I am requesting that future shipments include the MTC for all items. If you don't have the MTC for all materials, please let me know which materials this applies to and when you'll be able to receive them.

    Thank you very much for your assistance in this matter.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    1. Water shop is my department, which fabricates desalination machines
    2. "MTC" is mill test certificate.
    We have bought some material from this supplier, he must find the MTC of them, and send MTC to us.
    I want he send the availbe MTC, and tell me the kind of material that haven't MTC and the time he will send the rest MTC
    I'm sorry but...
    Would you mind correcting the letter agian for me, beacause it is very important to me.
    Thanks

    That is exactly what I did in the lower part of my post.

    You can say "from now on" or "in the future" as I have done.
