Plastics News now is offering its 1995 North American processor rankings on computer disks. Four such disks are available: thermoformers (published Feb. 20); injection molders (April 17); pipe, profile and tubing extruders (June 19); and rotational molders (Aug. 7).
These disks, which cost $125 each, are in an easy-to-use format that is compatible with both IBM and Macintosh personal computers and allows users to sort and print lists in alphabetical, ZIP-code or ranking order. Windows and DOS versions are available.
The disks, called TopList, contain company name, address, telephone number and a field to add fax numbers, top official for that business unit along with title, and the sales figure upon which the firm's rank was determined.
This contact information supplements the extensive statistical data about each firm included in the respective published ranking issue of Plastics News.
TopList can help users prospect for new business, enhance existing databases, and conduct job searches.
New lists available on disk later this year will be North American film and sheet manufacturers (to be published Sept. 18) and North American blow molders (Nov. 13).
At year's end Plastics News will make available a disk of its Market Data Book, to be published Dec. 25, that will contain all six 1995 processor rankings, along with information such as associations and trade groups. Cost of that disk will be $249.
