Verdex has launched its latest industry-specific Web portal, this time targeting industrial services providers. IndustrialServicesHQ, www.industrialserviceshq.com, allows manufacturers to quickly locate providers of a wide variety of industrial services, including engineering, production and maintenance. Verdex says typical site users would include engineering and plant managers, as well as purchasing professionals. In addition to its provider listings, the new site offers a regularly updated news service and an events calendar. Verdex is a division of Thomas Publishing Co. LLC, New York, a provider of industrial product and service information via print and electronic media.
