|"I work for a Midwest distributor and get frequent requests to purchase from manufacturers I am not familiar with. I have ThomasNet on my favorites which has saved me immeasurable time. ThomasNet gives me the ability to do a search by a manufacturer's name and by a product. But directing me to the company's website is the best!"|

"I work for the Art Department at West Virginia University. We have a metal shop and a wood shop.......ThomasNet has been a great help, and time saver, in finding materials, parts, and services, needed to keep our shops up and running. I use it a lot to find what I need right here in Morgantown or in the surrounding area. One student wanted to have parts, for his art works, chrome plated. I had no idea, close by, where this service could be found. I did a ThomasNet search and found a guy just an hour up the highway. The guy was glad to help a student and really cut him a break on the price. This made everyone happy! Thanks ThomasNet!!!"

We were having difficulty finding the right equipment to do a full bench test. We were told that we needed a Variable Frequency Drive. I went to ThomasNet, found what I was looking for at a very good price and we have now been able to complete the tests."|

|"ThomasNet is a highly convenient compilation of businesses serving specific product families. I had to find suppliers of specialty ceramics for scientific instrumentation that we needed quickly to perform measurements needed for a report to our customers. Using ThomasNet, I had about ten leads on my fingertips within a few seconds. I ordered my specialty parts with one of them, and got the job done on time. ThomasNet is great resource that helps me an my colleagues frequently."|

"I opened an account for a local hotel chain and the lead coordinator jokingly asked if we could get mattresses. Through ThomasNet I found a vendor who would accept a Lowes PO that would provide the mattresses to me at an amazing price. I was therefore able to offer the customer a great price and now have a huge mattress order pending."

"About three years ago we needed to source local sheet metal manufacturers for a new product we were developing for the solar PV market. (With ThomasNet) I was successful in identifying a number of NJ based companies and we are now utilizing 4 of them to manufacture 1 to 2 million dollars worth of that product. In addition, on public projects, we get "credit" for NJ manufactured products."
