847-864-7000 Company Website

Manufacturers' News, Inc. (MNI) based in Evanston, Illinois, is the nation's oldest and largest compiler and publisher of state manufacturers directories and databases. Our flagship publication, the Illinois Manufacturers Directory, dates back to 1912. Over the past century we have expanded our research and product line to the point where we now produce industrial directories and databases for all 50 states. MNI is the one-stop source for information on American manufacturers -- the largest purchasing group in America.

Our 80-person editorial staff scours yellow pages, chamber of commerce lists, trade journals, newspapers, financial reports, and hundreds of other sources to pinpoint every manufacturing establishment in all 50 states. Then each manufacturer is contacted by phone and asked up to thirty questions. Once a listing has been established, each manufacturer is updated annually with a mid-year mailing address update to ensure the accuracy of our profiles. We make over one million phone calls and send out over a half million questionnaires each year to ensure that our information is up-to-date.

"The most effective marketing for my business is to manufacturers through direct mail. MNI directories provide the concise information about the companies that we need to target and the right people we need to contact to introduce our services. With the directory of each state's manufacturers we can save a lot of time and money getting in touch with our specific target market. With the resources provided in the MNI state directories, we have been able to regulate the amount of business we bring in through our market and sales efforts. With the help of the MNI directories, we can practically put our marketing plan on autopilot!"
