Each of these former companies managed different catalog titles or 'brands' that market a wide range of MRO (maintenance, repair, and operations) products to many different types of customers in the U.S. and abroad.Because their customers trust these brand names, Interline allows each brand to maintain its identity and loyal customer base. At the same time, each of Interline's brands can now make significant improvements in sales, efficiency, technology, and customer satisfaction by being part of the Interline family.For example, they can now offer same-day or next-day delivery of the products in all of their catalogs to customers across North and Central America via their many distribution centers.Today, Interline Brands is a clear leader in the distribution of MRO products, and each of their brands can take advantage of their many resources.
