ThomasNet.com brings together two recognized, leading industrial sites - Thomas Register of American Manufacturers and Thomas Regional Buying Guides - into one powerful industrial search engine that enables industrial buyers to find the exact products and companies they need quickly and easily, and connects sellers with qualified potential customers. The industrial marketplace is a prime example of buyer demand for content specific web-based information.
