CompositesWorld's SOURCEBOOK issues final listing appeal

CompositesWorld, the publisher of High-Performance Composites and Composites Technology magazines, is in the final stage of preparation for publication of its annual composites industry buyer’s guide, the SOURCEBOOK. SOURCEBOOK 2010 will mail shortly to 27,500 professionals who supply composite products and subcomponents to OEMs in dozens of end-markets. (The Web version of the SOURCEBOOK can be viewed at www.compositesworld.com/suppliers.)

“We’re near and hope to exceed our record total of 1,650 listing suppliers from 2009, but we still have a number of companies that have been with us for years but haven’t updated their listings for the 2010 directory,” reports Mike Musselman, the SOURCEBOOK’s managing editor. Listing companies include those that supply composite materials, including fiber and resin, as well as those that supply the molding equipment, tooling and other machinery, test instruments and other hardware and software used to fabricate and finish composites. Also included are those companies that provide consulting, design, testing, fabricating and/or repair services to composites manufacturers. “About 150 companies that were listed in 2009 have not yet responded to the listing campaign.”

“It’s important to note,” Musselman adds, “that in the interest of accuracy, we do not simply rerun listings year after year. If the supplier does not renew its listing, the listing does not appear in the print SOURCEBOOK.” Musselman likens the directory’s annual print publication to the local phone book people use everyday. “Even in an electronic age, people like to have that paper buyer’s resource at their fingertips,” he notes. “So, for the sake of those who rely on the SOURCEBOOK for sourcing information, we’ve extended our deadline a bit in hopes that we can bring those still missing suppliers in, making the SOURCEBOOK as complete as possible.”

Suppliers still have a few days to get their listings updated. “The bad economy has, unfortunately, been responsible for high turnover in some companies. Often we find that the contact person for the listing is no longer at the company and our communications are lost in the ether.” Additionally, mergers, acquisitions and attrition alter the business landscape. With that in mind, the SOURCEBOOK staff prepared the following list of those companies that have, within the last three years, listed with the SOURCEBOOK but have not yet responded for 2010.

Says Musselman, “We encourage any company on this list to contact us immediately to ensure that their company’s listing is up-to-date and included in SOURCEBOOK 2010. The process is done online and takes only a few minutes.” Suppliers who wish to renew their listings should contact Musselman directly at mike@compositesworld.com. The deadline for renewal is Friday, Oct. 23.
