supplyFORCE.com(SM), a premier provider of fully integrated, B2B e-commerce, supply chain management solutions for the procurement of industrial and construction supplies, announced that it has been named a preferred supplier under a multi-year agreement with Nestle USA. Under the terms of the agreement, supplyFORCE.com will provide Web-based procurement capability of all Pipe, Valves and Fittings supplies to Nestle's U.S. facilities.
