Acklands-Grainger, Canada’s largest distributor of industrial, safety and fastener products, has announced its largest ever product expansion, adding 200,000 new products to its online offering over the next several months. With this expansion, the company will offer more than 300,000 products..
“Our customers count on us to be a single source for all of their industrial, safety and fastener products. We enhanced our selection in several key categories to help ensure that when customers have a need, we are ready to offer solutions,” said Acklands-Grainger President Eric Nowlin. “By providing easy access to a broad array of maintenance, repair and operating (MRO) products, Acklands-Grainger helps each customer be more productive in operating its business.”
The number of products now available online has doubled in size, which can help customers lower the total cost associated with maintaining, repairing or operating their facilities by consolidating vendors. The expansion crosses all existing product categories with an emphasis on safety, electrical, tools, material handling, plumbing and HVAC, and much of this product expansion comes from the company’s private brands such as Westward, Profast’ners, Condor and Tough Guy. The company continues to leverage products available through its U.S. network to provide customers with even more options.
This product expansion complements the Acklands-Grainger 2013 catalogue , which launched in February, and offers the industry’s broadest selection of 116,000 products in 11 categories, including 16,000 new items and 40 new suppliers.
