"With I am able to not only find sources faster, but to get more information about that particular company. Using the internet there are many search engines, but ThomasNet focuses on the companies I would more than likely use. It's geared toward a strong industrial base. Whenever I am trying to find a source for a product it advises me if they are a manufacturer or a distributor. This in many instances directs me to a facility that will also do custom product to something similar they manufacture. Just about six months ago I was able to use this situation to resolve a problem with very few extra costs due to that modification. Thanks ThomasNet."

Ronald Holmes"We are always looking for suppliers for our little manufacturing company. ThomasNet has been helpful in quickly locating certain types of supplies and services. Typically you can spend weeks going thru ads and trying to find vendors for specific products like adhesives, PC board companies, machining, custom enclosure companies, and so on. Thomas has saved me time and grief with their quick searches. Actual names and contact phone numbers. Invaluable for small companies like mine. The time translates money saved for me. We can't afford to go to every trade show in every category. Plus there is a greater likelihood of finding reliable resources and not just more "vaporware"."

"There have been so many of our vendors in Michigan that have gone under. We have been struggling trying to find a plastic resin company to provide material. Your listings have given me three (3) new vendors and I also have been able to work out competitive pricing. This will definitely help to keep our door open in 2010!"
