News, Inc. (MNI) based in Evanston, Illinois, 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
past century we have expanded our research on a national scale.
MNI is the one-stop source for information on U.S.
manufacturers...the largest purchasing group in America.
The most accurate, 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 We discover and quickly correct the outdated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 contact to give you multiple
per company, ranging from Chairman/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 the address and phone. So whether you are targeting
the small, medium, or large manufacturer, you can bypass the
mailroom gatekeeper by mailing to desired executives by name. If
you are telemarketing, know who the key decision maker is before
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 also show year established,
areas of distribution, number of employees, annual sales,
plant square footage, and type of ownership. We list SIC
and NAICS codes, ISO ratings, product descriptions, brand names, and more. We
cross-index other names under which a firm does business and other
division, parent company, and home office locations. Up to
thirty facts are collected in total for each company in our

that includes agents, reps, copy shops, and companies no longer
in business. Others sell lists that are incomplete and miss many
of the small and medium-sized plants. MNI does the careful,
thorough research necessary to ensure that every manufacturing
establishment, no matter how small, is included. We also compile
profiles for selected wholesalers & distributors on a
national basis and service
businesses in Illinois. 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
