Grainger, an industrial supply company based in the US, is a fortune 500 company that supplies over 3 million customers with industrial supplies, equipment, and tools.

Training videos are a great way to explain difficult concepts, or highlight complex procedures that one can understand better through simplifying how to communicate such methods.

This resulted in an effective, customized, easy to follow, yet memorable story-based training video.
