CHICAGO - Grainger, a leading distributor of facilities maintenance supplies, announced that it is adding over 39,000 products to its new 2006 catalog launching April 3, 2006. The expansion brings the number of products offered through its catalog from 82,000 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, plumbing, and ventilation.

"Our customers count on us to be a one-stop shop for a broad selection of maintenance, repair, and operating supplies," said Michael Pulick, Grainger's vice president of product management. "We had a clear opportunity to bolster our offering, especially in fasteners."

In addition to the new, larger catalog with more products and information, the company will stock more than 4,000 fasteners locally in most of its 400 U.S. branches with the balance available for shipping from distribution centers. Product selection tools on Grainger.com are designed to assist customers in narrowing their selection to the right product based on factors such as grade, size, and material.

Grainger serves more than 1.7 million customers from the manufacturing, commercial, government, transportation, and contractor markets. For more information, visit www.grainger.com.
