On Aug. 31, Dallas-based Singer Industrial — formerly SBP Holdings — announced it has “joined forces” with American Hose & Hardware Inc., which will operate within the Industrial Rubber Division of Singer Industrial. The addition will increase Singer Industrial’s North America footprint to approximately 90 locations with over 1,200 employees, according to a company news release.

Financial details were not disclosed.

AH&H has served more than 1,000 customers within the construction, food and beverage and transportation end markets with hydraulic, industrial, and metal hose, fittings and adapters.

MDM’S SHIFT Conference, Sept. 18-20 in Denver, brings together distribution leaders to learn and network across topics of sales & marketing, digital transformation, data analytics and talent management. Find more info here.

“AH&H’s commitment to quickly solving customers’ problems is exactly the type of culture and mindset we value at Singer Industrial,” Singer CEO Craig Osborne said. “We are very proud to partner with these devoted employees and add these two Georgia locations to our footprint.”

AH&H President Dean Smith will continue to manage the AH&H team and locations, Singer said.

“After 45 years of operating a family-owned business started by my father, Robert Smith, we’re excited to enter a new era through a partnership with Singer Industrial,” Dean Smith said. “This partnership provides us the opportunity to expand our product and service offering that we are known for.”

The AH&H deal marks Singer’s third acquisition in 2023.

In April, Singer announced it had acquired Arizona-based Hotsy Industrial Systems, a provider off hot & cold pressure washers, air compressors, waste water treatment systems and detergents. In March, the company announced its acquisition of Uni-Draulik Inc., a Canadian distributor of hydraulic equipment.

Singer Industrial rebranded from SBP Holdings earlier this year.

On MDM’s 2023 Top Distributors’ Lists, Singer ranks No. 40 among industrial distributors, No. 15 for fluid power and No. 4 among hose/accessories.
