    Welcome to the Central Networking thread!

    This is stolen from the Rockies Region but it looked like a cool idea.
    Look here if you're not sure how to go about it http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=427219

    Here's the place to post your virtual business card, info on job leads or jobs wanted, or other business-type services offered in the Central area (Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and the Dakotas).

    To avoid spamminess, the rules are simple:

    1. One post per business/service offering/contact - be sure your contact info is accurate and if your services are highly local (i.e. no mail order), be sure to include a city and state in your post.

    2. Text only, and no large/overly colorful/downright obnoxious fonts, please. Think "clean Yellow Pages listing" to keep the visual noise level down. This thread is to serve as a reference - it is not another obnoxious advertising space. Nobody wants to repeatedly scroll through visual spam like this every time they visit the thread.

    [​IMG]

    3. No replies will be permitted in this thread - if you see something you like, want or need, all inquiry/discussion is to be carried on outside of the thread via PMs, email, or phone. It would be a good idea to state your preferred method of contact in your post.

    4. If you are offering or looking for work, please delete your post once you've landed your dream employee/job.

    5. Any overt spamminess (including but not limited to non-Central-regional services, abuse of contact info, etc.) will be struck down swiftly by the hand of Mod(erators). If things get out of hand, the whole thread will be punted to Vendors.

    6. Play nice. :D


    While we may ride globally, doing business locally just might help out a fellow rider - so post 'em up! :freaky

    I am looking for an independent Sales Representative, mostly for Indiana, but parts of Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky are available as well. We manufacture and sell custom-printed house wrap. The plant is in Richmond, VA and the regional customer service office is in Hudson, OH. The job involves calling on builders, contractors, lumber yards and building products distributors and convincing them that they need to buy our house wrap with their company name printed on it. This is a commission sales job.

    Contact me if you're interested.

    "Plastics young man, plastics"

    Anybody got any hair brained ideas that can be molded into plastics?

    My main business is medical related plastic parts (think syringes etc.) which are molded and stamped out in the thousands/millions. I work with tool makers and plastic injection shops with manufacturing capabilities and I'm looking for more interesting projects.

    Medical and dental widgets are my game, but if you've got a good idea for a plastic motorcycle part that everyone will want, I can get it made. Covers, fairing parts, tool trays, GPS mounts, bottles, valves, screws, applicators, ADV spatulas. You my friend are surrounded by plastics.

    CAD/CAM Mold design, tool engineering, manufacturing of plastic parts, warehouse and shipping are all available. All my products are designed and manufactured in the U.S.A.

    If you have any need for the production of plastic parts, shoot me a PM.

    mmmmmmmmmmmm ADV spatula :scratch You know you'd want one!:evil
