List of suppliers

From: Owen Bradford <owen.bradford>

Is there a list showing international suppliers of
conservation/bookbinding material ?

The reason I ask is that a firm that we have dealt with for many years,
namely F. J. Ratchford Limited, Kennedy Way, Green Lane, Stockport,
England, were telling me that they are considering increasing their
export market into the US and other countries and I wondered if there
was a directory on which they could publish this fact.

I would not normally try to help in this way but over the years we have
had excellent service from them and we find their book-cloths and
buckrams ideally suited to our binding processes.

Perhaps a "recommended supplier" list would be useful if it was on CooL
or another point of access on the Web? I always find it a problem
tracing new sources of specialist one off items in particular.

    **** Moderator's comments:   Lists of suppliers are more than
    welcome in CoOL, but for reasons that should be obvious, there will
    be no "Recommended suppliers".

In the meantime if anyone is interested in samples from Ratchfords
telephone +44 61 4808484 or Fax: +44 61 4803679.

I hope this doesn't sound too much like an advert but I just wanted to
introduce the idea of an "electronic recommended suppliers" list.

Many thanks.
