(June 1, 2007) — Probably because we have failed to send you info regarding our portal, www.thermoplasticsglobal.com, this example of a successful portal was omitted from your April 16 editorial [“Success elusive for plastic portals,” Page 6].
Each week Thermoplastics Global Summary is e-mailed free to 26,000 professionals in the global plastics industry. For those desiring the full story on the items it summarizes, subscription access is offered. Neither this Web site nor any of our traditional newsletter products carry advertising.
The Web site also provides direct links to industry events, links to all plastics trade magazines, links to plastics-related books from all publishers and links to other information of use to plastics professionals, such as properties data and market studies.
Thermoplastics Global Summary was initiated three years ago as a logical extension of our traditional plastics newsletters business that had been founded in 1972.
We believe a key reason for our long-standing success is that we follow a traditional newsletter format of all text/no ads, rather than attempting to do what the industry magazines do so well.
