EF Bailey is the seventh acquisition of BlackHawk Industrial, expanding BlackHawk's footprint into the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
EF Bailey distributes cutting tools, abrasives, fluids and engineered product along with a wide variety of MRO supplies to end users primarily in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.
“BlackHawk will continue to look for additional U.S.-based industrial distributors to acquire as we further build out our business," said Bill Scheller, CEO of BlackHawk Industrial.
"EF Bailey offers many services that will be expanded as a part of BlackHawk Industrial. We believe that the EF Bailey customer base will now have the ability to reach new markets and have access to new locations and a more complete comprehensive vending and other inventory management systems,” Scheller said.
