Maintenance distributor adds electrical specialties group
Motion Industries, Inc., a distributor of maintenance, repair, and operation replacement parts and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Company (GPC), announced EIS – also a wholly-owned subsidiary of GPC – has become the Electrical Specialties Group of Motion Industries, effective Jan. 2, 2018.
“We have been working directly with Motion Industries for many years, as EIS’s products and services complement Motion’s offerings in many ways,” said Larry Griffin, president of EIS. “Combining our resources into one offering to the industrial marketplace makes a lot of sense with our similar markets, goals and culture.”
EIS operates 39 branches and six fabrication facilities located across North America. The company supplies process materials, production supplies, specialty wire and cable, and value-added fabricated parts to electrical original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), motor repair shops and various assembly markets. Based in Atlanta, the company focuses on three main areas: Electrical & electronic, cable & connectivity, and fabrication & coating.
Tim Breen, Motion Industries’ President and CEO, said, “This move creates operational synergies and new growth strategies that will make both companies stronger than ever in customer service and in the competitive market.”
