|Grainger Launches Its 2009 Catalog, Features Broadest Product Offering in Company's 82 Year History|
"Now more than ever, businesses and institutions of all sizes are counting on us to be the one-stop shop for all of their facilities maintenance product needs," said Mike Pulick, President, Grainger U.S. "We are committed to maintaining a broad array of inventory along with our excellent customer service throughout the economic downturn, so we can help our customers weather the storm and emerge stronger."
Grainger's 2009 catalog features 64,000 new items over last year's offering (http://www.grainger.com/productexpansion). The product expansion means that Grainger is even better positioned to help customers be more productive and efficient in maintaining their facilities. Easy access to a broad array of products enables customers to consolidate vendors and establish a local source for just-in-time inventory, lowering the total costs associated with maintaining, repairing or operating their facilities.
Customer feedback drove the addition of more than: -- 8,000 items in the Electrical category; -- 15,000 products in Metalworking, which nearly doubles the current offering; -- 41,000 additional products across all product categories including Safety, Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning (HVAC), Fleet Maintenance and Material Handling.
"Our customers have told us they want access to the broadest product
offering with high inventory availability at a fair price," said
Grainger's 2009 catalog features more than 3,900 pages of product and technical information with tools to help customers quickly find the products they need to keep their facilities up and running. Beyond the product expansion to the catalog, the company recently added 27,000 safety, material handling and other products to http://www.grainger.com/news bringing the total products available online to more than 300,000.
