Industrial Leaders Group announced today the launch of MFGmatch.net,
a custom manufacturing marketplace
to connect companies with machine shops and contract manufacturers.
The company said the new site was launched in response of a serious
need for small and medium sized job shops with limited marketing
budgets to compete with larger shops with a more dominate online
According to Conrad Bailey, spokesperson for MFGmatch.net, the
site is designed to help domestic and international machine
shops promote their services online while enabling those in
the market for custom manufacturing services to submit RFQ's (request
for quotes) directly to national and international manufacturers
at . Bailey said the focus of the site is on machined parts, precision
components and other custom products constructed in various metals,
plastics, rubber, wood and other materials.
"MFGmatch.net was designed to include offerings for all types
of services provided by machine shops such as castings, engineering
and design, fabrication, forging, woodworking, tool and die making,
prototyping, plastic and rubber parts, molding, mold making, metal
finishing, precision machining, heat treatment,
forging and other custom manufacturing solutions," said Bailey.
He added, "Industrial Leaders created the site because research
has shown many smaller shops are in need of a lead generation
service they can afford and compete with larger manufacturers
that often dominate search engines and other industrial marketplaces
on the Web."
Bailey said there are existing site that charge machine shops
as much as $5,000 and up annually for the privilege to access
RFQ's with no guarantee of results in terms of new customers.
MFGmatch.net on the other hand is free for both the buyer as well
as the supplier. He explained, "It's a win-win situation
for everybody involved because the money saved by the machine
shop that would usually be spent on advertising can be passed
on to the buyer."
MFGmatch is a FREE Custom Manufacturing Marketplace at http://www.MFGmatch.net

machined items and other made-to-order products and solutions.
The site is the solution to high-priced marketplaces as it's designed
to enable machine shops, contract manufacturers, foundries, engineers
and other professionals to post and explore RFQs at no charge.
