A new online manufacturing marketplace, MFGfind, has launched at www.mfgfind.com with the intent to bring new business to custom manufacturers, including smaller shops. The marketplace connects customers with custom manufacturers, such as machinists, 3-D printers, welders, and other craftsmen, and provides them with a system for communicating, signing agreements, making secure electronic payments, and preventing fraud.
Membership is free for customers and manufacturers. All types of customers are invited to participate, whether they are hobbyists needing custom parts for their projects or large manufacturers needing prototyping and craftsmanship services.
After a job is completed and paid for, customers and manufacturers leave reviews for each other, enabling others to make better decisions based on their experiences and job statistics.
