Thomas, the leader in product sourcing, supplier selection, and marketing solutions for industry, today announced the launch of Thomas Industrial Data – the premier resource for all sourcing and supply chain trends in the manufacturing and industrial sectors.

The platform has 1,500,000+ buyers per month that source products and services from 70,000+ categories, containing 500,000+ North American suppliers, and 7,800,000+ product listings. This sourcing activity creates petabytes of market and industry trend data that provides an unprecedented window into the industrial economy.

We have received an overwhelming number of requests for analysis and trends based on our data and information during this global crisis. Everyone from the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Small Business Administration to CNN and Yahoo! Finance has asked for deeper insights around how the manufacturing industry is reacting to and preparing for the impact of the coronavirus, said Thomas President and CEO Tony Uphoff. While we understand our data has use cases for financial analysts, investment firms, research groups, marketing teams, and sales leaders, we are focused on sharing everything we can right now to help combat this pandemic.

This new business unit will be led by Vice President of Data Products and Services, Tom Greco and Head of Data and AI Hamid Benbrahim. Greco brings deep experience in supplier sourcing from his ten years as the Head of Product for Benbrahim joined Thomas to lead the data science team and unite the multiple data sets and resources within the company. He brings big data experience to the Thomas data sets from his time as CEO and co-founder of Natural Numerix, a provider of innovative capital markets technology solutions and real-time intelligence capabilities for trading and risk management; and as the former Chief Data Scientist and Managing Director of TD Ameritrade.

“I’m excited to join Thomas and be a part of the team building our Thomas Industrial Data business, said Benbrahim. The data we use to run our core business can also be a valuable service for financial and industry analysts, and I’m excited to help serve this growing marketplace as we bring the data revolution to the industrial space.

The team leveraged Thomas data to create the Thomas Manufacturing Index (TMX), which reflects the fundamentals of industrial activity across the United States and Canada. It illustrates the impact of supply chain sourcing activity, project planning, and commercial spending confidence on the economy. The TMX is currently updated and published monthly – see the latest version overlaid on the S&P 500 here.
