I recently read the news from Omnexus ("Omnexus going live this week," Oct. 2, Page 3), and we at IDES Inc. are excited by this new organization and anxiously await its launch. I would, however, like to respond to the comment made by Omnexus Chief Executive Officer Yaarit Silverstone. She mentioned that Omnexus would have the industry´s only aggregated catalog of plastic materials.
This is simply not the case. Our organization, IDES, has been in the business of aggregating plastics information for 15 years now, and we have a database containing nearly 40,000 plastic products from producers all over the globe. We make this resource widely available to the industry through material producers, distributors, Net markets like Omnexus and via our own Web site: www.ides.com.
We´d like for processors to know that there are many options for plastics information.
