Acklands-Grainger to Add 200,000 Products to Online Offerings

This expansion, covering all product lines, is the largest product expansion in the company's history.

Toronto, ON-based Acklands-Grainger, the Canadian subsidiary of Chicago-based Grainger, is adding 200,000 products to its online offerings over the next several months. With this expansion, the largest is the company's history, the company will offer more than 300,000 products online.

“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 in size. The expansion crosses all existing product categories with an emphasis on safety, electrical, tools, material handling, plumbing and HVAC, and much of this product expansion 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 even more options.
