EVANSTON, Ill., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Industrial publisher Manufacturers' News, Inc., today announced the publication of its new resource for industrial companies, a wholesalers and distributors directory designed to connect manufacturers with suppliers across the nation. The inaugural 2013 print edition of the U.S. Wholesalers & Distributors Directory, published in December 2012, features profiles of 30,000 suppliers across the nation and complements the company's online resource IndustryNet for locating buyers and suppliers online. MNI, long-time publisher of manufacturers directories and databases for all fifty states, responded to customer demand for a stand-alone publication dedicated to helping manufacturers find new markets for their products or search for suppliers. The publication of the first U.S. Wholesalers and Distributors Directory represents a yearlong effort by the publisher's research and production staff to assemble a comprehensive listing of the nation's major industrial suppliers and wholesalers. "This is our first directory devoted entirely to identifying and classifying the important businesses that distribute these manufactured products to end users," said Tom Dubin, President of the Evanston, IL-based publishing company, which has been surveying industry since 1912."With so many manufacturers trying to expand into new markets, we recognized the need for a one-stop source that would make this process easier." The 2013 Edition is supported by advertising, and since its publication in December 2012, has been circulated free of charge to more than 10,000 large-scale manufacturers operating across a wide range of industries. Manufacturers' News, Inc. is the nation's oldest and largest publisher of state industrial directories and databases. For 101 years the company has identified, researched and profiled manufacturing establishments. MNI's 80-person editorial research team scours hundreds of sources to identify every manufacturing establishment in the U.S. and contacts each company throughout the year to update their profiles. Company profiles provide up to 30 facts, including vital contact information (phone, web, e-mail), executives by name and title, product(s) manufactured, annual sales, number of employees, and more. Subscribers to EZSelect.com may tap into MNI's live database of U.S. 400,000 manufacturers and wholesalers/distributors and create custom company profiles using a variety of criteria. In addition to its state directories, MNI publishes the U.S. Industrial Expansion and Relocation Guide.
