Fluoro-Plastics, Inc. has been an advertiser with Thomas (first Thomas Register and now ThomasNet) since 1990.
The reason we remain customers is twofold. First, the Thomas organization is well positioned on the Internet to provide us with high visibility and a significant number of leads and orders every month. Second, David Gural (our local representative) has always provided the highest quality service, advice and support imaginable. Over 24
years we have come to rely on his and his staff’s expertise, insights and judgments in designing and periodically modifying our website. Also, he has referred us to talented vendors (photographers, designers and videographers) for special advertising and promotional projects. Twenty-four years is a long time to maintain a close business relationship with a vendor, particularly marketing and advertising services vendor. The reason we have never change is very simple: David Gural and Thomas keep up to date and provide the highest level of attention and service in the industry. 24 years is a long time—that is 288 monthly checks paid to Thomas and David Gural. We pride ourselves on being a value-based company. We strive to provide the best value proposition in our industry and we expect our vendors and suppliers to do the same. Thomas and David Gural do not disappoint. That is the reason we continue to work with Thomas and David Gural.

We use ThomasNet almost exclusively as our marketing arm.
As a leading provider of heat treating services with specialized services and a limited direct sales staff, our challenge has been getting our message out to a potentially broad customer base that we have the ability to heat treat large parts and long slender parts.
We have several logical market segments to whom we direct market, and we do that quite well with a barrage of press releases to trade magazines, social media and direct mail – but after that, it is difficult to reach potential customers who may have need of our services, so we rely heavily upon the web to attract leads. Once we have attracted their attention, we seem to be able to convert these leads into orders quite well.
ThomasNet has served us incredibly well during the past 15 years, by attracting good, sound leads to our website and providing us with the inquiries that we have needed to help us sustain and grow our business.
And the help that you have given us in creating our website has been invaluable. We receive high marks from visitors to our pages in terms of layout, content and ease of navigation.
Kudos to you and your team, and ThomasNet as partners in our growth and success.
Vice President, Marketing and Sales
Thanks for a great year. As always ThomasNet has come through again. A lot has changed since I first started using Thomas as my sole advertising media some thirty years ago. Wow, thirty years…. back when the big green books were king and having a full page add made you proud. Since then Thomas has stayed on top with its continued innovation and drive to stay ahead of this ever changing digital media world today. Gone are the big green volumes in their place an extraordinary powerful web based sales tool that I could not be in business with out.
So thanks again to you and your team for its continued support and thorough knowledge in keeping my advertising program on top!
