U.S. Tsubaki Launches New Interactive Website and Centralized Product Platform to Better Serve Engineers
Wheeling, IL—(May 10, 2012) —U.S. Tsubaki, a pioneer in the development and manufacturing of power transmission and motion control products, has worked closely with the Enterprise Solutions Group of Thomas Industrial
Network to create a central, online platform to host all of its product information. This information can now be streamed into multiple channels such as their website as well as distributor channels.
From roller chains to engineering class chains, power transmission components, sprockets and cable hose carriers, engineers can now access any one of thousands of individual products from one central website - http://ustsubaki.com.
U.S. Tsubaki, a subsidiary of Tsubakimoto Chain Company, maintains ongoing partnerships with engineers in the energy, mining, oil and gas, food processing, forestry and packaging/conveyor markets that have led to the development of
innovative products that are helping engineers around the world to be more efficient and innovative in their own projects.

already seeing huge benefits to our customers by helping to minimize errors, improving quality control and creating efficiencies with this access to information. We no longer have to worry about manual processes creating errors.”
Using Thomas’ Navigator Platform as the central source for its data, U.S. Tsubaki is now able to syndicate all of its detailed product information to its key distributors – each, in the unique format required. “Providing our data in
multiple custom formats to each distributor had always been a challenge for us,” said Mr. Renk. “For the first time ever we can rest assured that our product line is being fully represented. That in itself is worth the price of
