May 2, 2013: Acklands-Grainger Announces Its Largest Product Expansion

TORONTO — Acklands-Grainger, one of Canada’s largest distributors 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 to businesses across Canada.

“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 Eric Nowlin, Acklands-Grainger president. “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 expansion crosses all existing product categories with an emphasis on safety, electrical, tools, material handling, plumbing, and HVAC, and much of it 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 more options.

This product expansion complements the Acklands-Grainger 2013 catalogue, which launched in February and offers a selection of 116,000 products in 11 categories, including 16,000 new items and 40 new suppliers.

“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.”
