Industrial distributor BlackHawk Industrial has completed the acquisition of Advanced Industrial Supply in Pocatello, Idaho.

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition of the industrial distributor, announced in a Oct. 25 news release, is part of a flurry of acquisition activity in recent years which BlackHawk has planned in order to expand into new categories, increase its product assortment, and expand into new geographic markets to reach more of its production facilities.

“With Advanced Industrial’s team of experts and ours, we can offer new and broader services,” said BlackHawk President and CEO John Mark. “We are looking forward to sharing our value proposition with the Idaho and Northern Utah markets and all our customers around the world.”

The acquisition of Advanced Industrial is the second completed in 2023, after seven acquisitions in 2022.

Oklahoma-based BlackHawk ranked twice on MDM’s 2023 Top Distributors Lists, including as No. 32 on the Top Industrial Distributors List and No. 14 on the Top MRO Industrial Distributors List. The distributor has locations across the U.S., Mexico, United Kingdom, and the Philippines. It markets over 2.5 million products with a heavy emphasis on metal-working products.

In early October, the company created a role to lead its manufacturing efforts, and announced its plan to bolster its fastener division.
