Leading Distributor Announces Acquisition

Merger and acquisition business concept: Puzzle pieces with buildings and handshake.

Birmingham, Alabama-based Motion Industries recently announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Power Industries, Inc., also known as Santa Rosa MRO, LLC in Santa Rosa, California. The deal was effective May 1, 2018.

Founded in 1951, Power Industries specializes in MRO parts including bearings, power transmissions, and fluid power. Industries served include wineries, food and beverage, water treatment, forest products, construction, and manufacturing. The addition of Power Industries’ locations in Santa Rosa and Napa expands the distributor’s reach and customer service capabilities throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

The agreement marks Motion's second acquisition of a California company in the last year. Numatic Engineering (Los Angeles) joined the company last August.

Motion Industries has grown sales to more than $5 billion and is a leading industrial parts distributor of bearings, industrial automation, mechanical power transmission, electrical components, hydraulics, pneumatics, safety products, and material handling equipment. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Company and has over 550 locations, including 14 distribution centers throughout North America that serve more than 300,000 customers.
