September was another month jam-packed with merger & acquisition news for distributors of industrial, construction and commercial products. We at MDM posted news of 25 different deals announced during the month, following 26 in August. Economic red flags and a presumed pending slowdown in industrial demand doesn’t appear to have impacted the pace of M&A activity for distributors — at least not yet.

September started with an avalanche of deals announced just before Labor Day and then slowed to a trickle for the next few weeks before closing out the month with another flurry of news.

The activity was highlighted by Jansan, foodservice and packaging distributor Envoy Solutions announcing three deals during September, and there were two for Sonepar USA. Sonepar, bearings maker Timken and electrical distributor Wesco each announced major deals that look to add at least $200 million in annual revenue.

Listed in chronological order, here are the M&A announcements — primarily involving distributors, but also manufacturers that sell through the channel — MDM covered during September (click the headline for more details):

Of course, this list doesn’t cover every deal announced this past month, as there’s always likely to be ones that weren’t on our radar or that we just weren’t alerted to. If we missed one, please let us know at
