ThomasNet reviews stories from purchasers

  1. 1. Stories from Purchasers "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." Victor Camasi Estimating Shorts Tool & MFG We sourced for: Alloys"When I first started working for USM they were paying an online service to find products. The servicethey subscribed to was not nearly as helpful as ThomasNet. We cancelled the subscription. ThomasNethelps me find vendors not only for my hard-to-find items, but also for the everyday items we use in theshop. ThomasNet is a great help."Cathy SmithBuyerUSM AEROSTRUCTURESWe sourced for: Metals and Hardware"I had a hard time online finding a manufacturer for some parts After finding ThomasNet I was able tocontact multiple manufacturers, of whom 13 responded to my purchase request.

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.

  3. 3. "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." Cyndy Taschman Purchasing Robbins Auto Top Co. We sourced for: Hardware, Plastic Parts, Adhesives, Cloth and Glass"ThomasNet has helped me find products I had no idea what they were. But I just typed it into the blankand behold suppliers who knew exactly what I was looking for. Some even had the product in stock andcould ship right away. For new buyers, seasoned buyers and all in between; ThomasNet will get you onthe right track and save you many missed lunches and sleepless nights."Maxine HastyPurchasingBest Foam Fabricators, Inc.We sourced for: Foam, Steel, Adhesives, Copper, Chemicals and Wire Forms
