Cincinnati-based social trade network IndustryHuddle.com has reached a new milestone over a month before its first major overhaul. Century Fasteners & Machines Co., of Niles, IL, registered on July 12th, 2013 as the 500th company on the social trade network. As a result, they will receive a $500 advertising credit for use on the site or toward sponsorship of an industry huddle of their choosing.

The 500-member mark, celebrated with a pizza party at IndustryHuddle’s Cincinnati office, is a milestone that signifies the company’s continued growth as it marches toward IndustryHuddle 2.0, a revision of the current site that will allow both professionals and companies alike to network, save, and carry out transactions at a higher level of convenience than ever before.

Companies are already taking advantage of IndustryHuddle’s growing userbase, with service providers going to the site to tend to the needs of manufacturers and distributors and hundreds of members utilizing the Huddle Savings programs.

Zachary Haines, president and CEO of IndustryHuddle.com said, “With large companies like 3M on board as well as smaller operations like Century Fasteners, we’re proving that our services are accessible to all.”

 Industry Huddle, founded and headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, is a free social trade network for B2B companies to connect with suppliers and customers in their industry in order to increase product sales. The first of its kind, this free service offers savings on business expenses simply by signing up. For more information, visit www.industryhuddle.com.
