What is Top Shops Sourcing?
More than just a sourcing database, Top Shops is a free sales and marketing tool that helps American job shops and contract manufacturers connect with sourcing, purchasing and procurement professionals looking to source parts and products from an exclusive and qualified list of American manufacturers.
“We ended up winning about a five year contract just solely through the exposure we received from the Top Shops program”
Matt Wardle, President, JD Machine – Top Shops Honoree and Top Shops Sourcing Founding Partner
What makes Top Shops Sourcing Different?
Top Shops is founded in data and focused on strengthening the American manufacturing supply chain. Alongside traditional sourcing criteria like processes and industries, Top Shops focuses on performance and features categories that more accurately reflect a shop's expertise, culture and values. This makes it easier for sourcing and procurement professionals to find the right shops and it makes it easier for shops to tell their story. Also, the Top Shops benchmarking program helps shops improve their competitiveness by focusing on operational and business improvement.
Who is Top Shops For?
The simple answer? Top Shops is for US manufacturing. It's a platform that connects highly qualified, capable job shops and contract manufacturers with companies that understand the value of manufacturing their parts and products locally with quality US companies. If you are a buyer or seller of machined parts, Top Shops is for you!
