MRC Global Inc. has introduced MRCGO, an end-to-end digital supply chain solution for pipe, valve and fitting (PVF) purchases. The solution allows customers to search, shop, track, expedite and connect with live support from a single platform.
"We often tell our customers that we can simplify their supply chain by giving them a single source for all of their PVF needs," Andrew R. Lane, MRC global president and CEO, says. "MRCGO is the digital extension of that promise. It delivers an e-commerce connection that makes B2B transactions easy and efficient. As the leader in our industry, it is fitting that we would lead the industry-wide digital transformation and develop an e-commerce solution of this caliber. Today, we have an $800 million e-commerce revenue base that we expect to grow over the next several years."
