It's not all doom and gloom

Bad times lay just ahead... or at least so goes much of the economic news these days. Distributors across most lines of trade are being told - 2008-10 will be the Katrina of Economic low pressure cells.

Yet MRO giant W. W. Granger has announced the end of a pretty good February.

2008 vs 2007 February Sales by Segment listed as:

  • Grainger Branch-based +6 %

  • Acklands - Grainger (Canada) +25 %

  • Lab Safety Supply +3 %

What does this mean for other distributors? Well, it gives you a benchmark to compare your business against a known commodity.
