Toshiba’s Online Catalog Achieved a Breakthrough in Its Ability to Deliver High-Quality Products and Service to Customers


Milford, OH – April 20, 2010 – PARTsolutions, LLC, a global provider of 3D part catalogs for manufacturers and enterprises, announced today that Toshiba International Corporation (TIC) has been selected as a winner of the sixth annual Progressive Manufacturing 100 (PM 100) Awards for its implementation of its PARTsolutions online parts catalog.

Honored in the Innovation Mastery category, judges concluded that the Toshiba motors online catalog has achieved a breakthrough in its ability to deliver to customers by streamlining the discovery, download and purchase processes of the company’s low voltage motor product line.

Selected by Managing Automation Media, a Thomas Publishing Company, LLC publication, the PM 100 Awards honor manufacturing business transformation supported by advanced technology. The award winners are selected according to their success in mastering one of the eight core disciplines as defined by the Managing Automation editorial team.

“This recognition is confirmation of TIC’s continued commitment and leadership in the industry,” said Jay Hopper, President of PARTsolutions. “We are thrilled that our 3D part catalog technology is playing such a key part in TIC’s growth and manufacturing transformation and that Thomas Publishing’s Managing Automation Media recognized TIC’s implementation of PARTsolutions’ technology.”

By web-enabling its general purpose low voltage motor product line–including its EQPIII Premium Efficiency Series, Explosion Proof and EPACT Efficiency Series products–Toshiba has enabled its customers to quickly configure and download high quality product data in CAD-native format. By implementing PARTcatalog™ from PARTsolutions, Toshiba is saving valuable resources by eliminating the time-intensive process of creating, migrating and translating catalog content. PARTcatalog also increases Toshiba’s ability to proactively deliver sales and support information to
its customers.

“As we prepare for the eventual end of the Great Recession, these winning companies dramatically underscore how the manufacturing industry will begin to emerge in an even stronger position once a recovery takes a firm hold,” said David R. Brousell, Editor-in-Chief of Managing Automation Media. “The projects that enabled these companies to become PM100 winners reflect great creativity and inventiveness, a determined willingness to take risk, and an enduring resilience to continually improve every aspect of their business. These companies are leading the way to a better future.”
