AKRON, 0HIO - 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).
The TopList disks, which cost $125 each, are in an easy-to-use format, compatible with IBM and Macintosh personal computers, that allows users to sort lists alphabetically, by ZIP code or in ranking order. Windows and DOS versions are available.
The disks 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 used to determine the firm's ranking. This contact information supplements the extensive statistical data included in the respective ranking issues 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 (published in this issue) and North American blow molders (Nov. 13).
At year's end PN 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 an extensive list of industry-related associations and trade groups. That disk will cost $249.
