OEM Lead Reports
Corporate members now have real-time access to a special list of OEM contacts generated by the NADCA Marketing Program. A valuable addition to any company's sales and marketing efforts, these individuals, along with their demographic information, can be extremely useful in reaching a specific company involved in the designing, buying or specifiying of die castings, as well as formulating a better understanding of the geographic distribution of OEMs, their various end-markets, what type of information they have requested/received, along with the publication/media that lead them to NADCA. Formerly an additional "subscription only" service, it is now available – complimentary – to all Corporate members in good standing.
