MNI (Manufacturers' News, Inc.) is
the nation's oldest and largest compiler and publisher of industrial
directories and databases. Our flagship publication, the
Illinois Manufacturers Directory, dates back to 1912. Over the
years we have expanded our data research on a national scale.
Today MNI is the leading source for information profiling U.S.
manufacturers... the largest purchasing group in America, spending more than $8 billion annually.
We offer the most in-depth company profiles.
Our 80-person editorial research team scours trade journals,
newspapers, financial reports, websites, social media & RSS feeds, and
hundreds of other sources to pinpoint every manufacturing
establishment in the U.S. Each manufacturer is contacted multiple times
annually to ensure their information remains up-to-date and complete. In total,
more than two million pieces of mail are sent, one million phone
calls placed, and three million emails sent to ensure the accuracy
of our data. We discover and quickly correct the outdated
information so our customers don't have to.
We go beyond the traditional single name to give you multiple contacts
per company, ranging from CEO to Plant
Manager. You won't find a more powerful tool to reach the
executive who has the final decision-making authority. If the
person is at a home office or parent company, we show that too,
including contact information. So whether you are targeting
the small, medium, or large manufacturers, you can bypass the
gatekeeper and get right to the desired executive by name.
We can put you on a first name basis with nearly 400,000 U.S. manufacturers
and their one million decision makers.
We go beyond the basics with our in-depth information. In
addition to address,
phone, fax, email, and website, we show year established,
areas of distribution, # of employees, annual sales,
square footage, and type of ownership. We list SIC
and NAICS, ISO, product descriptions, brand names, and more. We
cross-index other names under which a firm does business and
division, parent company, and home office locations. Up to
thirty facts are collected in total.
Addresses are CASS+DPV certified and NCOA verified regularly.

Some data providers inflate their numbers by selling lists
that includes agents, reps, copy shops, and companies no longer
in business. Others sell lists that are incomplete and miss many
small and medium-sized plants. MNI does the careful,
thorough research necessary to ensure that every manufacturing
establishment is included. We also profile
selected wholesalers & distributors and B-to-B services. We offer a variety
to access our data, each designed to fit your unique needs and budget.
Major news portals, newspapers, and radio & TV stations report the results of
our research. The Chicago Tribune has called our Illinois
Manufacturers Directory the "annual report card on the state of
manufacturing." Our mission is to compile and provide the
most comprehensive and accurate data on
U.S. manufacturers, and we take that mission very
We spend more than $3 million each year to
keep our database accurate and complete.
