Top Shops delivers supply chain solutions
- from start to part to finish.
From concept to production; pixel to polish - through the collective reach of Gardner Business Media, Top Shops connects contract manufacturers, tier suppliers, OEMs and technology vendors. The goal of Top Shops is not to simply connect these groups for the purposes of better technology transfer and more efficient sourcing and procurement, but to address the needs of and capitalize on opportunities present for the North American manufacturing supply chain.
Top Shops is founded in data –
metrics that matter to manufacturers.
Whether you are buying or selling product technology or buying and selling production parts, what makes Top Shops unique and different and valuable to you is access to information you can't find anywhere else. We are taking the unique value of the Top Shops data and expanding it in ways that help connect all aspects of the North American durable goods and discrete parts supply chain.
The components seem complex but the objective is simple - connect those that need technology, parts and services with those that provide technology parts and services - and, do so in a way that helps connect and strengthen the North American supply chain.
