Our goal is for buyers to find what they need and for U.S. suppliers to get found by those buyers and establish an enduring, mutually beneficial relationship.
Search by SIC Category
In pursuit of that goal, for a clear and familiar organizational map, we principally organize our manufacturers by SIC (Standard Industrial Classification) categories.
At the top level, these consist of two-digit codes, some based on the material inputs (e.g., metals, non-metallic minerals, rubber and plastics), some on the nature of the resulting product (e.g., machinery, fabricated metal products, controls).
Search by Sector or Venue
To further facilitate the buyer/supplier discovery process, we offer searches based on sector of use (e.g., industrial production, construction, transportation) and venue of use (e.g., industrial, residential, office, retail).
Search by Keyword
We also offer a search box on our home page where you can enter key words that can help you locate appropriate potential suppliers for your needs.
We have created a special category for U.S. manufacturers of equipment and supplies needed in response to Covid 19.
Save Suppliers of Interest
When you identify a supplier of interest, on the supplier’s profile page you can click on “Add to Saved Supplier List.” You can create a new list or add the supplier to an existing list. You can view your lists on your account page (My Account) and click through to review your listed suppliers.
