BuilderDepot Inc. (San Diego) is a business-to-business marketplace for construction manufacturers to sell products in a Web-based superstore. The site, http://www.builderdepot.com, lists products but keeps no actual inventory. Instead, it hooks up its ordering apparatus to manufacturers' inventory databases. The manufacturers will ship merchandise directly to the professional contractors, builders and remodelers who order through BuilderDepot.
