Acklands-Grainger doubles online product offerings

By Jack Keough

Acklands-Grainger, Canada’s largest distributor of industrial, safety and fastener products, has announced its largest ever product expansion, adding 200,000 new products, including electrical, to its online offering over the next several months. With this expansion, the company will offer more than 300,000 products.

“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 number of products now available online has doubled, which can help customers lower the total costs associated with maintaining, repairing or operating their facilities by consolidating vendors, the company said.

The expansion crosses all existing product categories with an emphasis on safety, electrical, tools, material handling, plumbing and HVAC. Much of this product expansion comes from the company’s private brands such as Westward, Profast’ners, Condor and Tough Guy. The company also continues to leverage products available through its U.S. network, to provide customers with even more options.
