MDM LIVE: October 16, 2020

Join us for the next episode of MDM LIVE. We are joined by Mike DeCata, president and CEO of Lawson Products Inc., a $370 million Chicago-based national distributor of MRO products. We’ll check in with DeCata on how Lawson’s team, customers and suppliers have been handling the pandemic and how things look as we start Q4. We’ll also ask him about the company’s key strategic shifts in 2020, the role that culture plays at Lawson and his strategic priorities/outlook for 2021.

Also, with Lawson now in the process of integrating a $35.3 million acquisition it pulled off during the midst of the coronavirus crisis, we’ll find out why the company moved forward with this deal and why Lawson’s approach to M&A hasn’t wavered — even amid COVID-19.
