New Delhi: B2B e-commerce marketplace Industrybuying.com has allied with Grainger Inc., a US-based industrial supply company, to expand its product catalogue.
Through this, Industrybuying.com anticipates augmenting its product offering and brands that are otherwise inaccessible to Indian customers. Grainger aims at expanding globally and its growth to be led by its e-commerce arm.
