Sales have doubled every month this year and the number of customers has increased over 300% at San Diego-based BuilderDepot Inc., which sells home improvement and building products to building professionals and consumers at BuilderDepot.com, the company reports.

BuilderDepot offers free or subsidized shipping of products from 600 suppliers. Products include hand and power tools, electrical, plumbing, hardware, lighting, garden, kitchen, bath, paint, landscaping, building materials and appliances. “By offering over 50,000 products, we are now similar to a typical Home Depot, Ace Hardware, or Lowe’s home center,” said Zak Zacharia, CEO of BuilderDepot.

“We are very excited about the trend we are experiencing,” Zacharia said. “We have doubled our sales every month this year and have dramatically increased the number of happy customers. We have also added many new products; some are not available from any store in the USA. This is a humble beginning as the numbers are still small.”

Zacharia says the company is now searching for sales, marketing and merchandising executives as well as senior management.
