NEW YORK

ThomasNet today announced that it is bringing “Buy it Now on Amazon” functionality to ThomasNet.com. This e-commerce capability supports ThomasNet.com’s position as the leading platform for product sourcing and supplier discovery. Purchasing professionals and engineers can find the right OEM and MRO products through ThomasNet.com’s Product Sourcing application, and now they can seamlessly buy many of those products on Amazon.com.

“We’re all about making buyers’ lives easier and enabling them to work more efficiently,” said Mark Holst-Knudsen, President of ThomasNet. “Having immediate and free access to purchase products right away is a welcome addition – especially for those users who make ‘spot buys’,” he added.

The “Buy it Now on Amazon” feature is available for millions of items within ThomasNet.com’s database of over 10 million OEM and MRO products. That number will continue growing as ThomasNet integrates more supplier and product information into its platform.

The Product Sourcing application helps to locate the right products including raw materials, components, and finished parts. Engineers can find millions of downloadable 2D/3D CAD models to ensure that the parts they need are an exact fit for their products.

Access to ThomasNet.com is completely free of charge.
