Dayton, OH-based Winsupply, No. 8 on MDM's 2017 list of the Top Industrial Distributors, made two acquisitions in December, headlining a moderately paced month for distribution M&A.
The company expanded in the west with both deals. Winsupply acquired Tacoma Electric Supply LLC, a Washington-based distributor of electrical equipment and supplies with locations in Tacoma and Puyallup.
Later in the month it acquired Tomas Pipe & Supply, Phoenix, AZ, a distributor of industrial pipe, valves and fittings.

The company made five acquisitions in 2017 and also opened 10 new locations.
