New IIR Global Plant Buyer's Guide Launched to Better Connect Buyers and Sellers in the Industrial Market, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) -  Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- A new online service linking industrial plant buyers with service providers, equipment manufacturers, distributors and manufacturer's representatives around the world has been launched by Industrial Info Resources.

To make this buyer's guide the most compete resource in the market, listings will be free during the product-launch period. Companies can provide corporate and local information, including contact information and service areas for all of their offices at no charge.

"What's unique about the new IIR Plant Buyer's Guide is that it lists service providers, as well as equipment manufacturers and distributors around the world," said Michael Bergen, Industrial Info's executive vice president for marketing and forecast products. "Our buyer's guide allows listing companies to enter their entire corporate tree, from the headquarters to each sales office, and sales offices can enter information about the specific areas they serve, including each office's contact information."

Companies are encouraged to go to the Plant Buyer's Guide site to list their company's information. Companies also can begin using the buyer's guide right away. A tab for the buyer's guide is located on the second row of the horizontal toolbar at the top of the IIR website (

By registering for the new plant buyer's guide, service providers, equipment manufacturers, and equipment distributors will be able to put their names, locations, and contact information for all of their locations around the world, including specific countries and geographic regions within each country, in one easy-to-use online tool. Whether your business is industrial equipment rental, pipe and valve sales, or engineering & construction services, listing your business in our new buyer's guide will boost your business prospects by shortening the amount of time that potential purchasers search for equipment or service providers. And you can't beat the price!

"Users have told us they like the self-directed drop-down search menus that allow them to quickly zero in on particular service providers by geographic location," Bergen said. "Once they have located a specific type of service or equipment provider in a designated area, they can easily obtain direct-contact information for the company representatives. They can also locate the nearest providers of services or equipment using the tool's built-in mapping function."

"When we were designing this online tool, customers told us they wanted to be able to conduct their own searches whenever they had the need," Bergen said. "That's why our directory allows registrants to list all of their locations and provide full contact information for representatives. If a plant suffers an unscheduled outage, this tool allows them to quickly contact a service provider and schedule a repair. Time is money, especially with unscheduled downtime and having a resource that is quick and easy to use is key to getting the job done."

Since 1983, Industrial Info has been gathering and updating information on industrial plants around the world. This includes building a database of more than 250,000 current plant management and corporate decision-maker contacts, along with contacts with major engineering and construction firms that are actively working on projects in various stages of development. Once the launch period is completed and the buyer's guide is populated with resources around the world, Industrial Info will begin promoting this valuable resource to its database of key decision-makers.

"We are promoting our new buyer's guide through various channels, including press releases, tradeshows and other electronic media so that we can quickly build our directory and start introducing this valuable resource to buyers around the world," said Bergen.
