Grainger’s expanded product offering is featured in the company’s newly redesigned catalog. The 2007 edition features more than 138,000 facilities maintenance products. With more than 3,000 pages of product and technical information, the catalog offers enhanced search and selection tools to help customers quickly find the products they need.

“Our customers told us they turn to our catalog as a reference tool for sourcing facilities maintenance products,” said Kevin Peters, senior vice president of supply chain management for Grainger. “We bolstered our offering in several key categories including plumbing, material handling, fasteners and security products,”

In addition to the catalog, the company has added new search and selection tools on its Web site, , to assist customers in narrowing their selection, based on factors that are relevant to the product or application. Cross-referencing tools, a new dedicated plumbing catalog and employee product training will also help customers save time in sourcing the right product for their applications.
