Press release date: Feb 19, 2008

Melville, New York. (February 19, 2008). J&L Industrial Supply, an MSC Company, launched its largest metalworking catalog in company history. The new 2007 V76 J&L Metalworking catalog boasts over 100,000 SKU's, providing the most comprehensive metalworking resource in the industry.

New in the 2007 J&L catalog are a significant number of new brands and products, providing customers all of the top metalworking brands. The catalog will offer new product lines from Stanley, Stanley Proto, Blackhawk by Proto, SPI, Gibraltar, and NuLine. Additionally, the Kennametal catalog section offers a significant number of new products and a new layout that provides more product information and is easier-to-use. J&L's exclusive Hertel brand also has an expanded product offering featuring new Hertel indexable milling products. Customers receiving the J&L Metalworking catalog also received a 75-page supplemental Seco catalog featuring over 3,200 products.

As a result of the merger of J&L Industrial Supply and MSC Industrial Supply Company, J&L catalog customers will also receive enhanced fulfillment service. J&L customers will now receive product shipments from four customer fulfillment centers while enjoying the same cutoff times and rapid shipment. More fulfillment centers will mean increased product inventory and enhanced order fulfillment.

When asked to comment on the new J&L catalog, Erik Gershwind, MSC Vice President of Marketing, stated, "The heritage of both MSC and J&L is metalworking and that is one of the reasons why we are so excited about combining the two companies. J&L Industrial Supply has always had a goal of being the industry's number one metalworking resource. By combining the metalworking strengths of the two companies, we believe both J&L and MSC metalworking customers will have more metalworking brands and products to choose from, technical expertise, enhanced customer service and distribution than either company could provide individually. The new J&L Metalworking catalog is a good example of the synergy the two companies can deliver as J&L customers will for the first time be able to purchase a number of MSC proprietary metalworking brands and products. As the merger transition continues, we look forward to bringing additional benefits to both J&L and MSC customers as we combine the strengths and best practices of both companies."
