Name-Finders Readies List of Chinese BusinessesPHOENIX -- Name-Finders Lists Inc. introduced Chinagetnet.com, a business-to-business database of businesses in China, at the B-to-B Marketing Conference here yesterday.
Consisting of more than 3.3 million company names from 16 vertical markets, the names come from a network center compiled by the Chinese government.
The list will be available in a few weeks. The company profiles that it can provide include name in Chinese and English (if available); address in Chinese and English (if available); telephone and fax numbers; e-mail address; Web site; head of company; contact person; year business was established; total assets; industry category and employee size.
Companies come from verticals including appliance, computers, chemicals and oils, construction materials, electronics, education and culture and healthcare, financial and banking, group corporations, information, metallurgical, pharmaceuticals, paper, textile, transportation and vehicles.
Brad Pagano, executive director of sales and marketing at Name-Finders Lists, San Francisco, said that more important than increasing the size of the list is enhancing information on current companies.
"Before expanding this list, I would like to focus more on developing this one," he said. "Some companies on the list are missing phone, fax and e-mail information, but all of the other demographic information is available."
There are 200,000 e-mail addresses available for the names on the list.
