Welcome to MNI
People-powered industrial data since 1912.
We profile nearly a half million industrial businesses. But we're unlike any other data provider. We don't scrape the web for outdated, inaccurate, or unreliable data. The foundation of our company profile data is built on real human research, complemented with our own proprietary technologies for data verification and quality control.
Through our team of more than 80 incredibly dedicated data researchers, we scour hundreds of sources on-and-offline to pinpoint industrial businesses, large and small. Each company is contacted multiple times annually to ensure its 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 go out to ensure the accuracy and completeness of our company profiles.
We can put you on a first name basis with nearly one million executive decision makers.
We dive deep into a company's make-up, identifying as many as 40 key facts about the business, including multiple contact names per company. You won't find a more powerful tool to reach the executive with the final decision-making authority. Multiple data points allow you to zero-in on your best prospects by company location, size, and industry. Proprietary business descriptions help you pre-qualify companies. Addresses are CASS+DPV certified and NCOA verified regularly. View a sample profile
Some data providers inflate their numbers by including agents, reps, copy shops, and companies no longer in business. Others sell lists that are incomplete and miss many smaller companies. Only MNI does the careful, thorough, and proactive research necessary to ensure that every qualified business is included and kept current.
MNI is the nation's oldest and largest compiler and publisher of industrial information. It originally started as Manufacturers News, a weekly magazine for manufacturing executives.
