Stories from Engineers & Designers
"ThomasNet.com is very convenient when you need to find a product or service. Instead of going through dozens of catalogs or websites searching for what I need, I simply go to ThomasNet and punch in what I am looking for. They give me multiple choices of where to go or who to see. This is a real time saver, and occasionally, a real life-saver."

"ThomasNet.com helps me find the accurate model for fittings, valves, etc... With this, I can create a realistic piping design that can be displayed on each piece of equipment. This helps me convey my needs to the pipefitter visually when they do installations on the field. It also helps me to choose the right prices for my design."

"There is no other way to search for manufacturing processes or look for things that are as specific as they are in manufacturing. ThomasNet.com lists the companies and materials that we need. The different search capabilities on ThomasNet are a terrific help, for instance: by state(s) or within the number of miles of a zip code."

"My company has numerous old machines -- a few are as old as 60 years or more. Some manufacturers of these machines either went out of business, changed their name or were bought out. Numerous times I've had to go to ThomasNet to find these machine parts or a supplier that carries them. ThomasNet has helped me find company names, contacts, phone numbers and product information that has ultimately led to finding and purchasing the part I need. It would be almost impossible to do our business in maintenance without ThomasNet."

"Frequently we need local manufacturers for mechanical power related equipment. We go to ThomasNet.com, which is our favorite web site rather than Google's general web site."
Supervising Discipline Engineer

"As a Mechanical Engineer I used to collect numerous vendor catalogs from fasteners to connectors. Although you can find everything online directly from the manufacturers; my concern was not being able to remember the names of the suppliers to look up online. With ThomasNet.com I can specify a product and get a list of (literally hundreds) companies where I can get more detailed data from. I no longer store catalogs within my cubicle. No more clutter. My workspace is more efficient and looks nice too."
