PNN In The News
Product News Network® Announces Content Distribution Agreement With Gale®

NEW YORK, September 10, 2003 – Product News Network (PNN), a service of Thomas Publishing Company LLC, the most comprehensive online source of timely, reliable and complete new product information to the industrial marketplace, announced today a content distribution agreement with Gale, a world leader in e-information publishing. Through Gale's online services, customers will have the ability to access PNN's content, including more than 1,000 new monthly product news items and over 200,000 archived articles from North American manufacturers.

"Research shows that decision-makers look for information on industry-specific new product developments to help them make better business decisions. Despite the proliferation of sources on the Internet for financial, sports and general consumer-oriented information, there is a genuine void of industrial product news aggregated in one offering," said Paul Gerbino, Publisher of Product News Network. "PNN is the only provider of new product information for the industrial market that is both comprehensive and easy to search. The importance and need for a resource of new product information is evident and this relationship with Gale is a testament to that."
