Our Journey: How SupplyHog Came to Be

SupplyHog has its roots in the 2008 housing crisis, launching in 2010 as Nopone.com a pioneering reverse auction platform. This innovative platform benefited both users and suppliers by connecting them in a unique way. For instance, if a user needed materials to build a deck, they could post their requirements on Nopone.com, triggering a bidding process among local supply warehouses. This resulted in the user receiving the best possible price, while supply warehouses gained additional business opportunities.

Following its participation in the prestigious startup accelerators DreamIt in Philadelphia and 500Startups in San Francisco, SupplyHog underwent a transformative pivot. These programs provided valuable mentorship, networking opportunities, and access to industry expertise, enabling the platform to refine its vision and strategy. As a result, SupplyHog shifted its focus from a reverse auction model to a comprehensive ecommerce platform, streamlining its services and expanding its offerings to better meet the evolving needs of its users. This strategic pivot marked a significant turning point in SupplyHog's journey, positioning the company for sustained growth and success in the competitive ecommerce landscape.

In a strategic move to expand its offerings and strengthen its position in the market, SupplyHog was acquired by a leading construction industry player in 2016. This acquisition brought together SupplyHog's innovative ecommerce platform and the acquirer's extensive resources and expertise, creating a powerful synergy that has driven growth and innovation in the construction supply chain. As a result, SupplyHog has continued to thrive, providing customers with an even wider range of products, enhanced services, and improved overall experience, solidifying its position as a leading online construction materials marketplace.
