Services Directory

The PASA Category and Services Directory

With 356 suppliers already listed, the directory is off to a great start. However, to really turn it into a valuable resource for buyers, we need as many suppliers in there as possible. I would therefore encourage any buyers out there to forward the directory link to their suppliers, enabling them to sign up free of charge.
