The site also features a news and blog page, where breaking news from the U.S. supply chain and material handling sector is posted on a daily basis in addition to information about the newest lifting and moving technologies and other products as they roll off production lines.

It’s been a busy week at findadistributor.com working with trade magazine editors across North America to spread the word about the website’s launch. Many will write about the site in upcoming editions of their magazines, which are read in a variety of sectors consuming material handling equipment, including the automotive industry; plastics and electronics; pharmaceutical, healthcare, food and beverage; warehousing logistics; foundries; and aerospace, to name just a few.

We’re also inviting them to feature their titles on our newsstand, where you’ll find a library of trade magazines with links to their digital issues and websites.

Many are trading the coverage with a banner and link to findadistributor.com on their own websites. Are you a trade journal interested in partnering with us? Please send us a magazine thumbnail and the link; we’ll add you to the newsstand and reciprocate.

The findadistributor.com concept has been carefully researched to position it as the best possible buying tool it can be. It has been encouraging to talk to the industry’s leading trade journal editors to get a sense of the strength of the marketplace they cover every day.

The organiser of marquee trade events MODEX and ProMat, the MHI, says material handling equipment manufacturing represents over $30.0 billion or approximately 15% to 20% of MHI’s estimate for U.S. material handling consumption of nearly $165 billion, including conveyors and conveying equipment; overhead traveling cranes, hoists, and monorail systems; industrial truck, tractors, trailers and stacker machinery; and other material handling equipment.

Tell us what you think of findadistributor.com—the website that puts North America’s vast industrial distributor network at your fingertips.
