Des Moines – The Hawkeye State is more well known for its close knit farming communities than it is for its manufacturing sector, but the B-to-B search engine IndustrialCOOP is changing that in a minor but noticeable way as a partner of the American Machine Shops Network
. The company announced Tuesday it's now focusing on Iowa's businesses to help companies and entrepreneurs in the state find a suitable machine/job shop specializing in rapid prototyping model design, machined metal parts, plastic machining services, rapid prototype production, molded plastic parts and other custom manufacturing solutions.
According to I-COOP spokeswoman Karen Monroe, the industrial-focused search engine increased its offerings by 40% for rubber, wood, plastic and metal fabrication services as a search partner of MFGpartners.net.
Ms. Monroe said IndustrialCOOP is reaching out to 100+ Iowa Machining Shops throughout the state listed and approved by AMSN to connect such companies with buyers in the market for made-to-order parts and components produced from a variety of materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, copper, bronze, Inconel®, PVC and exotic metals.
