Lewis-Goetz Acquires Two Distributors

Industrial distributor Lewis-Goetz and Company, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, No. 26 on MDM's list of the top 40 industrial distributors, has acquired two distributors: EVCO House of Hose, Salt Lake City, UT; and Industrial Rubber & Supply, Decatur, AL.

EVCO is a distributor of hose, fittings and related products. EVCO specializes in the fabrication and supply of industrial and hydraulic hose products for industrial applications throughout the Rocky Mountain region.

Jeff Crane, president and CEO of Lewis-Goetz said: “The EVCO locations provide an obvious geographic fit for our expansion plans. With locations covering much of the Mountain West the acquisition fills a geographic hole in our footprint but also provides great synergy from an end-market standpoint. With an emphasis on oil and gas as well as construction EVCO provides very similar products and services to end markets and common customers that we know very well.”

Industrial Rubber & Supply is a distributor of gaskets, seals and hose assemblies specializing in the fabrication and supply of these products to a variety of industrial customers in the northern Alabama market.

Crane said: “The geography and end markets were particularly interesting to us. Getting to know the management team and their plans for future growth simply reinforced what a great combination these two companies could be.”
