We serve Manufacturers, Wholesalers, Distributors, Brokers, Dealers, Retailers, Service Companies, Financing, Leasing, and Importers/Exporters.

In 1991, Asay Media helped open the door to U.S. companies who wanted to sell their products and services overseas by introducing the International Edition of the Locator Magazine, now an online publication.

The company also operates several websites, including:

OMBE.com has become Asay Media Network's flagship site. With its limitless capabilities and its unique innovations, OMBE is quickly becoming the fastest and simplest way for industry buyers and sellers to generate business.
