One strategy to strongly consider while expanding your eCommerce footprint includes teaming up with Online Marketplaces. 

As a manufacturer, placing your products on an Online Marketplace opens doors that otherwise would simply not exist. 

In particular, partnering with Online Marketplaces that target industrial customers. 

For example, Falconer Electronics offers its product on multiple Online Marketplaces which we find extremely resourceful. 

We especially value each relationship as a valuable partner. 

Below includes a number of Online Marketplaces that we recommend:

  • Amazon 
  • Digi-Key 
  • McMaster-Carr 
  • MSC Industrial 
  • Walmart
  • Zoro

Let’s take a look at each of these Online Marketplaces. 




First of all, during the summer of 2019 (is that a title to a song?), we listed our Ground Straps on Amazon. 

As a result, Amazon now plays an important role in our future growth strategy. 

For example, search for “Ground Straps” on Amazon and several of our listings consistently rank at the top of the organic search results on Amazon.

Another powerhouse amongst the top Online Marketplaces, MSC Industrial. MSC employs more than 6000 employees with revenues nearly reaching $3 billion. 

Furthermore, the humble beginnings at MSC Industrial tell an incredible entrepreneurial success story:

Lastly, but not leastly (is that a word?), Falconer Electronics teamed up with Zoro, another one of the Online Marketplaces serving industrial customers.

Zoro launched on May 12, 2011. In those early days, Zoro had 20 employees who worked out of a warehouse. Our customers could select from 180,000 products online or from a physical catalog. And sometimes it became everyone’s job to pack customer shipments. Since then a lot has changed, including the breadth of our offerings, the size of our staff, and the look of our website.

Zoro continues to enjoy amazing growth from its humble beginnings with 2019 revenues reaching nearly $2 billion

Therefore, it made perfect sense for our team to team up with Zoro.

As a result, Braided Ground Straps from Falconer Electronics found a new home on Zoro.
