PUBLISHERS OF THOMAS REGISTER LAUNCH NATIONWIDE DIRECTORY OF MINORITY AND WOMEN-OWNED SUPPLIERS

 PUBLISHERS OF THOMAS REGISTER LAUNCH NATIONWIDE DIRECTORY
 OF MINORITY AND WOMEN-OWNED SUPPLIERS
 NEW YORK, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomas Publishing Company, publisher of "Thomas Register of American Manufacturers," today announced plans for a new directory entitled "Thomas Publishing's Directory of Minority and Women-Owned Suppliers." The directory is the first to offer national listings exclusive to minority and women-owned manufacturers, manufacturing-related services and distributors. Publication is slated for Spring 1993.
 The directory's overall format will be similar to "Thomas Register" with minority and women-owned suppliers listed by product or service category and alphabetically with up-to-date, detailed company information.
 A unique feature of the directory is the inclusion of information on certified minority and women-owned suppliers. Companies that provide Thomas Publishing with a copy(ies) of their certification will be highlighted in boldface for easy identification by purchasers who require such qualifications.
 "We have gone to great lengths to design a directory that is 'user- friendly,'" says Ruth Hurd, publisher of both the new directory and "Thomas Register." "We have an advisory board comprised of influential managers in purchasing and minority procurement programs. They have provided us with extensive input to ensure this directory provides the supplier information buyers need in an easy-to-access format."
 "Thomas Publishing's Directory of Minority and Women-Owned Suppliers" has been created in response to growing demand from purchasing agents who seek qualified minority and women-owned suppliers to comply with their own corporate procurement policies or those of the federal and/or local governments.
 Jeff Wigginton M/WBE (Minority/Women-Owned Business Enterprise) Coordinator for Brown & Root, Inc., says "Until now our purchasers have sourced minority and women-owned suppliers from a myriad of directories from around the country. Having one credible, nationwide source will expedite our M/WBE purchasing efforts tremendously."
 For ordering information on "Thomas Publishing's Directory of Minority and Women-Owned Suppliers" contact the Circulation Department at 212-290-7277. Minority and women-owned suppliers interested in a free listing should contact Tamara Adams, Associate Editor, at 212-290-7341.
