New Online Marketplace to Serve Supplier Discovery Needs of U.S. Buyers
Hoboken, NJ June 27, 2012 Fabricating Partners, Inc. today launched Fabricating.com, the industrys new online Request for Quote (RFQ) Marketplace designed to help U.S. Buyers build U.S. Supplier networks and manufacture made-to-order parts. Their SourceNow platform presents easy-to-use functionality designed to streamline and manage the complexities of sourcing custom-manufactured products, parts, and assemblies. From multi-line RFQs to crucial Supplier profiles, Fabricating.com delivers a productive, paperless system developed to address a critical market need for U.S. Buyers seeking U.S. Suppliers. The web-based service supports more than 250 manufacturing processes including machining, sheet metal fabricating, and thermoforming. Fabricating.com requires no IT setup, software installations, or maintenance. Buyers only need Internet access and a standard browser to source from any location.
Fabricating.com also launched their Sparks Fly marketing campaign to introduce the service and encourage reshoring of manufacturing jobs. The rising price of fossil fuel, climbing overseas labor costs, the declining dollar, and compelling total cost to own factors are compelling American enterprises to reconsider their manufacturing strategies and logistics. These current market trends were key drivers for Fabricating.com, which is well positioned to help companies create new supplier networks, reshore manufacturing jobs, support Buy American provision requirements, aid State MEPs with Made in YourState initiatives, and verify the country-of-origin labeling concept for products sold in America.
We are confident Fabricating.com will set the new standard for Sourcing in the United States, states Frank Russo, Fabricating.com CEO. In order to revitalize the nation’s manufacturing base, we have to encourage the cooperation and coordination of U.S. Buyers and U.S. Suppliers engaged in the Request for Quote process. Our ultra-intelligent SourceNow platform facilitates this interaction and delivers huge benefits to both U.S. Buyers and U.S. Suppliers. Fabricating.com delivers the tools needed by Engineers and Purchasing professionals to carve out next-gen Supplier networks that stimulate the economy and energize our nation of makers.
