According to Industrial Leaders, a significant number of precision machining companies are finding work on the marketplace at http://mfgpartners.net/precision-machining-companies.
Robert Brooks, spokesman for both the American Machine Shops Network and MFGmatch.net said being a free custom manufacturing marketplace has many advantages over fee-based marketplaces charging the manufacturing community commission and/or monthly subscription fees to access request for quotes (RFQs) posted from buyers of made-to-order parts and components. Brooks said companies that use fee-based manufacturing marketplaces when sourcing for products and services need to realize when a vendor is forced to pay a commission or subscription fee, more than likely its the buyer that has to pay for the difference. Brooks said MFGpartners.net does not charge subscription fees or commission and thus, the buyer can expect more competitive bids.
“Maryland has a strong manufacturing sector and AMSN is pleased to profile machine shops and specialty job shops throughout the state specializing custom metal fabrications, sheet metal work, steel fabrication, CNC, NC and manual machining, plastic & metal fabrication services as well as other solutions for companies all over the Old Line State and across the nation,” said Brooks. He concluded, “Whether companies use the custom manufacturing marketplace to explore offerings from US-based jobbing shops, or access the 1,000+ profiles of world class machine shops, foundries and contract manufacturers, the bottom line is these sites are quietly connecting buyers and suppliers of machined parts and custom-made products all over the country.”
MFGpartners.net is home of the American Machine Shops Network (AMSN). The company specializes in promoting US-based manufacturers of machined parts and components as well as other custom manufacturers. AMSN is designed to help companies, inventors, engineers and others find the most suitable machine shop offering a variety of CNC machining, fabrication, prototyping, foundry casting and other contract manufacturing solutions. AMSN also owns MFGmatch.net, the leading custom manufacturing marketplace.
