PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Industrial (, part of the Industrial Products Group of Systemax Inc. (NYSE: SYX), introduces the Global Industrial Marketplace, a new forum that allows vendors to sell directly to Global Industrial's extensive customer base.  In addition to products supplied and shipped by Global Industrial, the Global Industrial Marketplace offers products via that are directly sold and shipped by third-party "Marketplace Sellers".  Marketplace Sellers are specially selected to provide a wider variety of products, categories and choices to better serve the needs of Global Industrial's business customers.  

Unlike current consumer-oriented online marketplaces, the Global Industrial Marketplace is focused on the B2B market.  Marketplace Sellers can distribute and sell their products directly to buyers, which range from small and independent businesses to Fortune 1000 companies in industrial, commercial, and manufacturing industries, as well as verticals such as education, government, retail, healthcare and more.

"We are excited to offer the Global Industrial Marketplace which will provide Marketplace Sellers with a new sales channel and our customers with an expanded offering of products," said Bob Dooley, president of Global Industrial. "Providing smaller businesses and specialized category vendors with exposure to our large, national selling platform affords them a new high traffic sales channel and the support to drive their success.  We are looking to create true partnerships with B2B sellers to expand overall offerings and product selection."

Global Industrial Marketplace offers vendors the opportunity to partner with Global Industrial's award winning e-commerce platform while taking advantage of Global Industrial's national reach and significant marketing budget to promote and sell their products to a wide range of buyers in varying industries.

Sellers can access a user-friendly web-based portal to manage products, download orders, provide shipping advice and review payments, providing them with an intuitive and easy set up process. Sellers receive hands-on, personalized help throughout the partnership, ensuring their listings and visibility are optimized. As a result, new sellers can have their products appear on within days. 

Global Industrial Marketplace is also providing a full menu of services for successful and efficient selling, including access to checkout, transaction processing, fraud protection and customer service.

"Global Industrial Marketplace gives sellers access to millions of new potential customers, as well as the chance to reach thousands of established business customers overnight," added Dooley.  "In addition to the more than 750,000 SKUs Global Industrial sells, the increase in products offered by Marketplace Sellers ultimately makes our customer the winner."
