CHICAGO (July 10, 3:45 p.m. EDT) — I-Zone Inc., parent company of ProcessZone.com, has launched an in-depth search engine for the plastics industry.
The site features searches by such criteria as product or service category, brand name, Standard Industrial Classification, zip code and product or company name.
The Los Angeles-based company´s flagship offering covers more than 2,000 companies, said ProcessZone.com President Deborah Thacker. The company eventually plans to include profiles of more than 40,000 companies worldwide in its listings, she said.
The portal (www.ProcessZone.com) is free to users, with revenues coming from banner advertising, Thacker said.
"There´s nothing like this on the Internet," Thacker said. "There was a definite need for a sophisticated search engine for the plastics industry. Most other sites have searches by product categories or geographic location, but ours allows pinpointing by more specific areas."
