Preferred Contract Vendor for MRO Equipment / Supplies / Flooring / Carpet

B & H Logo

William W. (Bill) Grainger founded a wholesale electric motor sales and distribution business in Chicago in 1927. He established the company to provide an efficient solution for customers to access a consistent supply of electric motors. The business was incorporated as W. W. Grainger, Inc. in 1928. Sales in the early days were generated primarily through mail order via post cards and a catalog. The MotorBook, as the catalog was originally called, was the basis for today's Grainger catalog. To improve customer service, Bill Grainger opened a branch in Philadelphia in 1933 and then three additional branches the following year. By 1936, there were 15 branches in operation. It was evident that local branch service would be an integral part of the company's future growth. In 1967, Grainger became a public company, and its stock was traded in the over-the-counter market. Today, Grainger stock is sold under the GWW symbol on the New York and Chicago stock exchanges.

Grainger provides a complete package of soft surface flooring solutions that are focused on campus workplace, learning and living spaces. The flooring products are fully approved for use by established FSU Campus Design standards for quality and long term performance.  Grainger also offers in-stock materials and complete installation labor services for quick response flooring renovations.
