Our goal is to provide project-specific engineering support for marketplace members whose own engineering resources may be limited or unavailable. We will provide comprehensive professional services ranging from drawing review to full scale design and project management
Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) August 22, 2007
SourceHorizon, Inc., parent company of the industry leading online marketplace for U.S. custom manufacturing, SourceAuthority.com, announced today the creation of an Engineering Support Services division. Although the company has been offering such services to members of its growing Web community for more than a year, the company's expanded strategic partnership with Cygnus Business Media has made the new division necessary.
"The establishment of the SourceIMD.com website, jointly created with Cygnus, has boosted customer demand for engineering support services," commented SourceHorizon CEO, Perry Gathings, "and we needed a separate division to respond to that surge." Gathings appointed Jason Stevens, Professional Engineer, as Chief Engineering Services Officer to manage the new group. Mr. Stevens will be responsible for offering engineering support to the 3,300 members of the SourceAuthority.com marketplace. Prior to joining SourceHorizon, Mr. Stevens was Manager of Manufacturing and Engineering for IMPulse NC, Inc.
"Our goal is to provide project-specific engineering support for marketplace members whose own engineering resources may be limited or unavailable. We will provide comprehensive professional services ranging from drawing review to full scale design and project management," Stevens said of his new role.
SourceHorizon's partnership with Cygnus Business Media, publisher of more than 50 magazines, including Industrial Machinery Digest, Total Industrial Plant Solutions, and the Surplus Buying and Selling Guide, has given the SourceAuthority.com brand a solid foothold in the U.S. contract manufacturing space.
Commenting on this relationship, William Strickland of Cygnus said, "Cygnus welcomes this timely response by SourceHorizon to the need in the manufacturing community for professional engineering services to be available during the time-saving process of e-sourcing offered by the SourceAuthority.com online marketplace. In addition to signaling corporate growth, this move shows that SourceHorizon is delivering the next-generation e-supply chain platform that will help American manufacturers compete effectively in the global environment. We are glad that our expanded strategic relationship with SourceHorizon has helped to make this new service available to domestic producers of custom parts."
SourceHorizon, Inc. is an e-supply chain technology company whose SourceAuthority.com web site is the largest online marketplace focused on U.S. custom manufacturing.
