Motion Industries, No. 4 on MDM’s 2017 list of the top 40 industrial distributors, has announced that Atlanta, GA-based EIS Inc. has become the Electrical Specialties Group of Motion Industries, effective January 2, 2018.
Both Motion Industries and EIS are wholly owned subsidiaries of Genuine Parts Company (NYSE: GPC).
“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 currently operates 39 branches and six fabrication facilities located across North America, supplying process materials, production supplies, specialty wire and cable, and value-added fabricated parts to electrical 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. EIS’s annual revenues were $800 million in the previous year.
