DGI Supply, Wheeling, IL, a DoALL Company, has agreed to acquire East Metro Supply, Monroe, NC, a specialty tool and full line industrial distributor serving the Southeast. The transaction is expected to close May 4.
DGI plans to consolidate its current Charlotte location with the East Metro team shortly after the closing. Lane Baucom, president of East Metro, will remain with the company and will join DGI in a sales leadership role.
“The combined inventory will improve service levels and DGI’s broader product offering, business systems and automated procurement solutions will strengthen East Metro’s value proposition," said Bill Henricks, COO of DoALL Company. "We anticipate that the combination of our teams will create an impressive presence in the Charlotte market.”
