Stories from Suppliers
"Our Website with ThomasNet.com has already paid for itself. For a custom machine shop, it's all about getting requests for quotes. And we're getting about 10 to 15 RFQs per week. And for every 10 to 15 RFQs we get, we estimate about 20 phone calls."

Industrial Grinding, Inc.
"We recently received a contract for a company in Guam, who found us through ThomasNet.com. We currently supply them with parts on a weekly basis. We fly them ahead, so that when the ship comes into port, they can be retrofitted promptly. This has been worth at least another 25 to 30 thousand dollars per year. And this is business we would not have had if it weren't for ThomasNet.com."
"I've referred ThomasNet.com to all my inner circle of friends in manufacturing. Mostly because they know how to build a site for custom manufacturers like myself. And the success, the numbers that people want, they're there. I'm coming up number one on Google, I'm getting the million dollar customers. I'm getting almost 2000 qualified buyers coming to my website every month, and that's what I need to grow my business."
Keats Manufacturing Co.
"As the economic downturn worsened, I believe that we had to invest in advertising. So for every dollar we saved, I invested 50 cents in advertising. Most of it with ThomasNet.com, and our new Website and the online catalog. It ended up driving significant traffic to our site, and to Maxi Container, which translated into increased sales."
Maxi Container, Inc.
"ThomasNet.com brings the qualified buyers to us, both in the chemical side and the metal side. We wouldn't be in business today if it wasn't for what ThomasNet does for my business."
Continental Chemical USA
"We needed a partner who understood both the internet and the industrial landscape. And also who had the technology and expertise to back it up. Other companies offered us different solutions, but the ThomasNet.com solution was the complete package. The ThomasNet Navigator Platform was exactly what I was looking for because it covers all of the bases."

"I'd like to commend the ThomasNet team for their professionalism, flexibility, attention to detail and outstanding customer service. They are extremely responsive to our needs and changing requirements in the design and development of our site. They saved the day when they recently brought all of our web page coding up to standard."

"Having ThomasNet.com as our advertising partner has increased are new account sales. This has eliminated cold calling which is very expensive and time consuming. We now get calls from people who are ready to buy our products."
KD Fasteners, Inc.
"All I can say about ThomasNet is that it works. We have had inquiries from businesses that were entirely new and unknown to us; and when we ask how they came to know about us, they tell us ThomasNet! We're pleased."
Kenmar Timber Company
"The ThomasNet website and our ad has allowed us to be more out front on the internet for the type of products we handle. With the manufacturer and product lists we have buyers that are more likely to find us rather than our competition. We always ask our customers how they find us and a good majority say Thomas. We find our advertising budget with Thomas to be money well spent."
Keco Engineered Controls
"I have been working with our ThomasNet sales rep for approximately 6 years. She has helped us set our plan of action through ThomasNet. We have increased sales year after year with new clients who found us on ThomasNet.com. The clients who have found us are a who's who of all industry."
