BlackHawk Industrial Acquires Assets of Marshall Tool

Acquisition helps BlackHawk broaden its geographical footprint and sales penetration in Utah.

BlackHawk Industrial, Broken Arrow, OK, distributor of metalworking and industrial supplies and No. 28 on MDM’s list of the top 40 industrial distributors, has acquired certain assets of Marshall Tool located in Salt Lake City, UT.

This acquisition helps BlackHawk broaden its geographical footprint and sales penetration in the Utah and Mountain Region marketplaces. The additional inventory stocking location paired with field sales and CSR talent further strengthens BlackHawk’s presence in Utah, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.

“We are laser-focused on continuing to build out BlackHawk Industrial throughout North America," said Bill Scheller, CEO of BlackHawk Industrial. "In some cases, we are able to attract and acquire the best local distributors in a given market to become part of our business we are building in North America. With the latest asset acquisition of Marshall Tool in Salt Lake City, we are ‘greenfielding’ a new location in a great geographical area within the U.S. We believe this area of the country is currently underserved and will benefit from the technical metalworking sales talent of a distributor like BlackHawk Industrial.”
