The Thomas Register of American Manufacturers, now ThomasNet (www.thomasnet.com), is an online platform for supplier discovery and product sourcing in the USA and Canada. It was once known as the “big green books” and “Thomas Registry”, and was a multi-volume directory of industrial product information covering 650,000 distributors, manufacturers and service companies within 67,000-plus industrial categories that is now published on ThomasNet.
Today ThomasNet has evolved and advanced into the age of on-line database searches. They have rapidly become the primary tool that allowed individuals seeking product information and sourcing of products to sort through the many offerings in the marketplace and select the closest match for their manufacturing needs. Like all market-savvy companies, ThomasNet has worked closely with a few select clients to fine-tune their offerings allowing a symbiotic relationship to tailor their customer approaches to take full advantage of ThomasNet.
USTEK Inc. was selected as one of these clients and have benefited greatly from this relationship. This winter one of our staff, Ms. Amy Holbrook, will take part in a round-table panel discussion with ThomasNet staff as both our company and theirs prepares for even greater achievements in 2016 and beyond.
Congratulations are due Amy for her past and continuing work on developing a strategy to maximize USTEK’s market presents for custom manufactured components including printed circuit boards, metal parts, and magnetics.
