Houston-based electrical products manufacturer and distributor JD Martin and Florida-based machining manufacturer and distributor Integrated Component Sales, Inc. (ICS) will join forces, the two companies announced Dec. 7. The combined business will be known as ICS Martin, according to a news release. Financial details of the merger — effective Jan. 1, 2023 — were not disclosed.

Both JD Martin and ICS are described as “manufacturers’ representative agencies.” JD Martin sells electrical products in 15 states: Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, the Carolinas and Florida. ICS currently covers Alabama, Georgia, Florida, the Carolinas, Virginia and Tennessee. Post-merger, ICS Martin will serve 17 states.

“Our partnership with ICS brings new products, manufacturing partners and expanded solutions to both existing and new markets we serve,” JD Martin President and CEO Greg Baker said. “The decision to expand with their team is rooted in both the quality of their people and performance of their organization. We look forward to the opportunity to continue building on our mutual successes.”

We share similar cultures, values and vision for the future. Above all else, we are equally committed to delivering exceptional value to our customers—through our collective strength.”

ICS’s staff will remain intact following the merger, according to the release. Camera will be named President of ICS Martin while Baker will serve as CEO.
