April 17, 2013 – Acklands-Grainger—a distributor of industrial, safety and fastener products—announced its largest-ever product expansion, adding 200,000 new products to its online offering over the next several months.
“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.
The expansion crosses all existing product categories with an emphasis on safety, electrical, tools, material handling, plumbing and HVAC, says Acklands-Grainger, and much of this product expansion comes from its private brands, such as Westward, Profast’ners, Condor and Tough Guy. The company added it continues to leverage products available through its U.S. network to provide customers with even more options.
“We are focused on serving customers in the most convenient way through a multi-channel approach, whether it be through our network of branches (stores), industry-leading catalogue, or website,” said Nowlin. “We will continue to add products to our assortment and encourage customers to visit acklandsgrainger.com to review the most up-to-date offer.”
