just one word...communities
It's that simple with us. One unique differentiator that you'll always see with us is that our site serves the plastics professional, and communities is the focal point of how we do this.
We build plastics communities.
Since our inception way back in 1994, it has always been about you, the user. It's not about the advertiser or partner, even though we have those. It's not about the selling in the marketplace, even though we have that.
Our design, our experience, is geared to the user, the user's comfort and the user's usefulness. Most sites are horrifically all about themselves and their blatant, in your face BUY THIS, BUY THAT. Here at plastics.com we want to present you with a social and professional environment where you can gather information you need and make valuable contacts, even friends.
No other plastics site is like us, we're here for you. They're there for them. :-)
Plastics has two major content partnering programs; PlasticsMajors™ and PlasticsEdge™. These two programs are for companies in the plastics industry who wish to drive sales leads from plastics.com to the partner, as well as the powerful branding strength these products have.
Sell on the plastics.com marketplace?
Plastics.com's marketplace is the place our users go to research a purchase or to directly purchase plastics related products and services. The marketplace holds direct selling links as well as a hierarchial database of plastics industry suppliers.
If you are a seller, you may place your product info on plastics.com. For pricing details please contact or give a call to our sales office at 1.260.438.8464
Our Networking Secret?
It's pretty simple. With our large audience, you can ask questions in our forum and get answers EVEN FROM COMPETITORS who do the same thing you do but in a different market area, a different country, etc. We can be one of the best tools for knowledge you'll ever find. Work in a small company with not too many associates to ask questions of? New and don't want to ask the vets? Ask here, you'll get great answers!
