Grainer adds to product catalog
Grainger is adding more than 39,000 products to its new 2006 catalog launching April 3. The expansion brings the number of products offered through its catalog to more than 115,000. The expanded offering consists of some 30,000 different fasteners such as screws, bolts and nuts and an additional 10,000 products spread across diverse product categories including electrical, cleaning, material handling, plumbing and ventilation.
To celebrate the announcement the company commissioned a large fastener sculpture by well-known Chicago sculptor Erik Blome. The sculpture was on display this week National Manufactuirng Week in Rosemont, Ill.
“Our customers count on us to be a one-stop shop for a broad selection of maintenance repair and operating supplies, enabling them to efficiently manage their facilities,” said Michael Pulick, Grainger’s vice president of product management. “We had a clear opportunity to bolster our offering, especially in fasteners. Today we are excited to announce that we are poised to handle even more of our customers’ unplanned MRO needs.”
