Rapid News Communications Group, the publisher of British Plastics and Rubber, European Plastic Product Manufacturer, Medical Plastics News and Middle Eastern Plastics, and the organiser of the Interplas and Mediplas UK events, has launched a new directory platform that will serve the global plastic processing sector.
Plastrep.com is designed to play host to companies at every end of the supply chain, including producers of raw materials, manufacturers of machinery and equipment for every major process, as well as distributors and agents, consultant services and event organisers.
The site is designed for quick and simple sourcing of a local product or supplier -
wherever the user may be based. An integrated Google Maps feature gives a clear
overview of regional clusters of activity surrounding the various manufacturing processes. The site also offers genuine user interaction, with the opportunity to leave feedback, reviews and ‘starred’ ratings, based on experiences with specific suppliers.
A simple contact form system allows direct communication with the supplier. The site’s developers believe that it will grow to be one of the most efficient resources for fast, reliable sourcing. To give more detail on their product range, suppliers can even host their own literature on the site.
Pooling the readerships of the aforementioned titles, plastrep.com opens the door to a genuinely global audience for suppliers and their partner offices around the world. Basic listings are free of charge for all suppliers to the plastic processing industry.
