Amazon.com this morning announced a new site called AmazonSupply, offering everything from lab equipment and hydraulics to fasteners, gauges and ball bearings.
The site builds on the Seattle company’s 2005 acquisition of Small Parts Inc., which sent a message to its users this morning informing them that SmallParts.com is now redirecting to AmazonSupply.
Amazon has otherwise made a habit of keeping its acquired subsidiaries as standalone sites, with high-profile sites such as Zappos and Woot remaining online following their acquisitions by the Seattle company.
AmazonSupply is different in that it’s primarily targeted to businesses. More details on AmazonSupply in this news release. Other products offered through the site include office supplies and auto tools.
