Master Distributor AgoNow Closing, Liquidating Business

The industrial pure wholesaler was launched in 2017, catering to distributors and other resellers.

MDM learned April 20 that Tulsa, OK-based AgoNow — a master distributor of industrial MRO, commercial construction, welding and safety products — is ceasing operations.

The company’s website,, now goes to a static page that mentions the following brief statement:

We regret to inform you that Agonow is closing its business and is in the process of liquidation. We appreciate the support of our customers over the years and wish them all continued success in their businesses.

If you would like to get information on our current inventory and deals we have please email us at

AgoNow was launched in late 2017 as a pure industrial wholesaler, selling only to distributors and resellers. The firm was spearheaded by industry veterans Larry Davis (CEO) and John Allenbach (President). The duo discussed the formation and launch in a Premium Q&A with Tom Gale in December 2016.

In the summer of 2019, Davis became President of industrial distributor Fairmont Supply — a former MDM Top Industrial Distributor until its closing and liquidation in mid-2020 — but remained a Co-Owner of AgoNow. Davis then continued as AgoNow CEO.

Along with its main brand, AgoNow also launched WeldNow as a business unit catering to distributors of welding supplies.

AgoNow joined the industrial buying group IBC at the start of 2020.

Davis — a member of MDM’s Editorial Advisory Board for more than a decade — joined Gale on the MDM Podcast for a February 2022 episode.
