Last month’s cover story by Gary Druckenmiller spoke to the virtually untapped potential of the hvac business-to-business market. This month, we can report on a new major player attempting to fill that void. The new eCaribou.com is the first electronic supply chain management business for the $150-plus billion hvacr industry.
By directly linking buyers and manufacturers, the site aims to create the first efficient marketplace for the 40,000 U.S. service companies and over 7 million commercial properties to purchase equipment, parts, goods, and services online. The company’s goal is to become the leading online destination to integrate hvacr industry e-commerce, content, and community by bringing together manufacturers, suppliers, and buyers.
