(PRWEB) October 14, 2005 -- International trade search engine TOBOC ( announces the launch of their extensive new database.

A key underlying component of the site is that all types and sizes of businesses from around the world can use it. It is a hub of more than 2 million company profiles spanning 240 countries.

International trade continues to grow at an unprecedented rate and a large part of this growth coincides with increased worldwide Internet use.

The powerful search engine allows users to browse through millions of company profiles. The database is continually growing as new companies are added and current listings are updated and expanded.

For even further promotion of a company’s products and services, the site offers several advertising methods. This helps build awareness and generate a buzz about certain products.
