Grainger Expands Product Offerings
The company announced its intentions at the National Plant Engineering & Maintenance Show and Conference in Rosemont, IL, and to celebrate the event, Grainger commissioned a large fastener sculpture by Chicago sculptor Erik Blome, which was displayed at the show. The sculpture, comprised of thousands of fasteners and related products, stands 7 feet tall and weighs about 500 pounds.
In addition to the new larger catalog, the company said it 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.
