Victor Camasi"I received an urgent request from a tier one defense contractor and the parts that were to be purchased were made from a very rare material. I went to ThomasNet and typed in the product after searching Google for about an hour and there it was -- a supplier who carried the material and their contact info. I was able to get my quote back to the customer that very day and we were awarded the job. Thank You."

"When I first started working for USM they were paying an online service to find products. The service they subscribed to was not nearly as helpful as ThomasNet. We cancelled the subscription. ThomasNet helps me find vendors not only for my hard-to-find items, but also for the everyday items we use in the shop. ThomasNet is a great help."

Harold Jacobs"I came from marketing and didn't know beans about technical stuff, but I knew ThomasNet as it helped me in the past find customers. Now the shoe is on the other foot and it happens every day. A strange thingamajig is put on my desk and the machinist or boss will say: "get me some more of these". No idea what brand or source. That's when ThomasNet comes to the rescue with a world of technical info so that I know what I'm looking for and then it provides lists of supply resources so I know where to buy the thing."

Cyndy Taschman"We are frequently looking for better sources for parts used in the manufacturing of convertible tops. Rather than do mindless searches of the Internet, which always seem to only bring up sources in Asia, I am able to search for pressed polish plastic sheeting domestically, and find sources locally. I have found many sources for adhesive, reflective tape, metal brackets - one source turned out to be right around the corner from us. I also like using ThomasNet because they will provide me with other categories very similar in name, in which I frequently also found useful sources."

"ThomasNet has helped me find products I had no idea what they were. But I just typed it into the blank and behold suppliers who knew exactly what I was looking for. Some even had the product in stock and could ship right away. For new buyers, seasoned buyers and all in between; ThomasNet will get you on the right track and save you many missed lunches and sleepless nights."
