Key Information Unlocks Business Barriers


All right, so the “key” to this year’s
Buyer’s Guide theme seems to be little more than a corny cliche. That being
said, it also was the best way to get our point across to our readers.


During the next year, we all will face challenges both big
and small that test our endurance and abilities. The water treatment company
that can offer the most cost-efficient products, undeniably the best services
and the fastest responses will reign far superior to its competitors. Keeping
on top of changes surely is the best way to unlocking the secrets to a
successful business. Changes such as acquisitions and regulations continue to
be trying obstacles. Our guide remains a constant quality source for your
business needs.


The Water Quality Products Annual Buyer’s Guide
definitely is a key to many of my successes throughout the year as I am sure it
is for you as well. I refer to it often for regulation information, association
contacts and, of course, product and service suppliers. For those who are
first-time readers, here’s what we offer.


•                Regulations
Reviews—Current information on regulations in the point-of-use/point-of-entry
and bottled water industries. Water treatment professionals review what has
happened on the governmental front regarding standards and regulations
affecting these industries. In addition, a peek forward also informs you of
what to prepare for in the upcoming years. This year, we have Carlyn Meyer,
director of public affairs for the WQA, and Joseph Doss, president of IBWA,
lending their expertise in these areas, making it a must-read section.

•                Product
Service Listings—A listing of specific products and services offered from
the suppliers listed in our publication.

•                Product/Service
Directory—This year we have taken extra measures in preparing this guide
for our readers. As you will find, we carefully have reviewed each listing to
ensure that the suppliers are in fact involved in the sector of the business
for which they are listed. This high-quality care was imperative for us as we
know it is paramount for readers to get the most data as quickly as possible
with the value they deserve.

•                Supplier
Directory—An alphabetical listing of company’s addresses, websites,
phone numbers, etc. We do our best to make sure everyone is included. If you do
not see your company and would like to participate in next year’s
Buyer’s Guide, visit WaterInfoCenter.com to add/update your listing.


Whether you are hunting for conference contact names, where
to purchase reverse osmosis supplies or what the recent change to the brine
discharge regulations are, you can take this key, open the information door and
get your business going in the right direction.
