San Jose, CA, June 12, 2008 --( Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced that International Gas Springs (IGS) has reported spectacular results from their CDS CAD Model download solution.

IGS is based in Chicago, USA and Surrey, UK and is a leading manufacturer of Compression, Tension, Adjustable, Locking (Flexible & Rigid), Stainless Steel and Aluminum Springs. “Adding CAD Downloads to our web site has added 25-30% new business for IGS in less than a year,” said Brant Pelton, General Manager, IGS. “It has also enabled us to reach many new, high profile, customers because their design engineers downloaded and used IGS CAD models. Very often now, we get calls for technical advice or custom products and when we ask ‘how they heard of IGS’, the answer is ‘via the CAD Downloads’. Engineering Designers don’t appreciate a hard sell but saving them time by providing CAD models is opening many new doors for IGS.”

“We are delighted by International Gas Springs success in such a short space of time”, said John Major, CEO of CDS, “their experience further quantifies the value of CAD downloads as a business generation tool for industrial suppliers.”

Studies show that over 90% of designers and engineers now use the Internet to locate components for their new designs. Manufacturers are accelerating their web based marketing to capture this opportunity and the best way to do that is by offering CAD Downloads of their products.
