For several years, Panjiva has been working to connect buyers and suppliers across borders, but had been unable to connect buyers with one very important group of suppliers — American suppliers.  Today, this changes, thanks to Panjiva’s newest partner, ThomasNet. Now buyers on Panjiva can use Global Search to access a whole world of suppliers, including over 500,000 suppliers in the United States.

Panjiva believes that the future of American manufacturing depends on connecting with customers in growth markets all around the world.  Panjiva is therefore excited to partner with ThomasNet in an effort to make these connections.  In fact, according to ThomasNet.com’s Industry Market Barometer, nearly 7 out of 10 American manufacturers are selling overseas, and more than one-third of them plan to increase their international sales.

ThomasNet, built on the foundation of Thomas Register, is industry’s platform for supplier discovery and sourcing of components, equipment, MRO products, raw materials and custom manufacturing services from suppliers in North America.   Panjiva is working with ThomasNet to make suppliers on their platform available to buyers searching on Panjiva.  Head over to Global Search and give it a try.  Whether you’re searching for linear actuators, cranes, frp products  pumps, valves or anything in between on Panjiva, you’ll see American suppliers (and some Canadian ones too) from ThomasNet in the search results mix. And, if you want to focus your Panjiva searches exclusively on American suppliers, you can do that too.  That’s the great news for buyers.

Of course, this is also great news for American suppliers.  American suppliers now have the opportunity to get in front of Panjiva’s 5,000 paying users, as well as the 1 million people who hit the free portion of our site each month.  Did you know that 70% of Panjiva’s traffic comes from outside the United States?  As a result of our partnership with ThomasNet, American suppliers are going to have an opportunity to get in front of buyers from all around the world.  That’s the great news for American suppliers.
