VendQuest Inc. has launched what it calls an "e-dustrial" marketplace for buyers and suppliers in the construction, heavy equipment, trucking, vehicle maintenance, and mining industries. According to the company, its new Web site (www.vendquest.com) furnishes business buyers with an extensive interactive catalog of products and services.

VendQuest is designed to integrate with buyer and supplier back-end systems, offering both parties secure, paperless transactions while reducing errors and record-keeping time and costs, according to the company. Currently, over 1-million replacement and maintenance parts are available.
