AKRON, OHIO — Plastics News has made it easier than ever to obtain fully sortable contact data for all 626 North American injection molders ranked in this week's issue.

That information — which includes the headquarters address, telephone and fax numbers, top molding official's name and title, molding sales figure and ranking number—now is available not only on floppy disk but also in a downloadable format from the Internet.

The $199 price includes the injection molders list plus customized TopList 3.0 software for Windows or Macintosh.

For those interested in more than just injection molding, the ``Market Data Book'' on disk offers the same information on some 1,500 North American processors, plus sortable addresses, telephone and fax numbers for more than 600 additional companies and industry associations. The latter group includes North American custom compounders, post-consumer plastics recyclers and plastic lumber manufacturers, as well as plastics-relevant associations worldwide.

The electronic version of ``Market Data Book'' costs $299 and includes contact data for each of Plastics News' six most recently published North American processor rankings — this week's injection molders list, plus thermoformers; blow molders; film and sheet manufacturers; rotational molders; and pipe, profile and tubing extruders.

Interested parties can obtain further details, view sample records and place an order via Plastics News' Web site at http:// www.plasticsnews.com. Just enter the site, go to the Rankings & Lists Page, and click on the TopList disk icon.
