As a small business that makes filters for the government, aerospace and marine applications for over 40 years, we would wait for the phone to ring and rely on repeat business for sales. We never had a marketing strategy or plan for the future. Then about 5 years ago we were starting to see a slow down with the government that was affecting our sales and we knew we had to do something to find new customers.
Kit Noller with ThomasNet stopped in our office one day and helped us create a marketing plan using keywords and our website. In the past two years we have seen a huge increase in neew customers and new products.
When we compare the investment of hiring a sales person to ThomasNet, ThomasNet wins.

We’ve been working with ThomasNet and B2B Design & Development for well over 10 years and have been very happy with their performance and support. We started with the Thomasnet directory and needed to expand our online presence. Working with David Gural of B2B we developed a website several years ago, and most recently, incorporated a product catalog and audit program. David and his staff have been very easy to work with; experienced, extremely knowledgeable and responsive.
During development, we often needed guidance in accomplishing our vision. David’s knowledge of website design and development, SEO and online marketing were invaluable and up-to-date with the constantly evolving online marketing trends and techniques. His ideas and spot-on suggestions have resulted in our professional and well-thought web presence, informative to our customer and users and with room to grow. Both David and his staff are familiar with the needs and workings of corporations like ours, and responded intuitively to our ideas. They took the initiative to work with our web content, formatting and organizing it to best achieve our goals.
The overall result has been exceptionally successful and productive, resulting in direct communication with both potential and existing customers, and useful online tools to ease our daily workload.

We are entering our second year with ThomasNet used to market our hardware on-line business. We found our results to be good in the first year and are looking forward to a much more effective program in year two. We have increased the size of the program and also have had the years experience to measure results on a listing by listing basis to determine where our listing points are best used.
The most impressive thing about our experience is the quality and size of the companies and institutions coming to our site. We made a number of multiple-sale new customers this year and attribute a good portion to ThomasNet.
We have been working with David Gural & ThomasNet for over 20 years. Initially, we used the Thomas Register books, then expanded into the CatNav program and recently they created an entirely new website for us. David has also created several print ads and brochures for us. We have always been very pleased with the people, service & the quality of their products. Just recently we launched our new website and are thrilled with it. All the people involved in putting this site together were great to work with. We are expecting a considerable increase in our ranking, sales and activity from our new site. We definitely have developed a trust level with David and the people with whom he connects us.
Thanks for all of your help. We are really excite about our new website and the increased activity we are hoping it generates for us !

As a 94 year old family company we have been with Thomas a long time and I have worked with David Gural for over 20 years. Running a company I get caught up in the day to day, and David & ThomaNet have always been able to suggest and direct our company to current marketing strategies that keep us relevant and in front of our market space, which has become more and more difficult with today’s technologies. I’ve used other vendors and found that David knows the industrial space like no one else. I always come back to him for advice and planning.

I have been working with David Gural for many years even going back to the days of printed Thomas Register. Through the years David has helped to guide our transition from print to electronic media and then even further into the world of full blown electronic catalogs with complete CAD capabilities. David assists us in every way necessary, getting us the most “bang for the buck” at every turn. We look forward to working with David into the future.
Director of Global Marketing
In the 20+ years my client has had a program with ThomasNet.com (formerly Thomas Register), I’ve looked at other directories as they’ve come along. Nothing has even approached ThomasNet for quickly and efficiently connecting prospective customers to the specific, relevant pages on my client’s website. It’s direct, trackable and has resulted in verifiable sales. Thousands of companies each year are introduced to my client and their products through ThomasNet.

David Gural and his staff at ThomasNet and B2B Design have been key strategic partners in building and growing our on-line presence.
Our investment in ThomasNet has not only helped expand our business base, but it has allowed us to develop our brand as a leading American plastic injection molding company.
David has taken the time to learn about our business and identifies categories that drive more leads to our website.
Recently, we worked with David and his staff to re-design our website. Their knowledge of the latest in website development and BTB industrial marketing resulted in a new design that we are very proud of.
We highly recommend David and his team to anyone looking to grow their business.
