Safety and industrial supply distributor Mallory Safety and Supply, Portland, OR, has acquired the safety distribution business of United Fire Health and Safety of Portland, OR. Terms were not disclosed.
"Transitioning our safety product distribution business and fall protection repair business to Mallory allows us to focus on our core business of fire service, and is a win/win for our customers and employees," said Ed Wallace, president of United Fire. "Our safety team and our customers will enjoy having access to Mallory's broad product range and bigger menu of safety products and services, and I'm excited about focusing on our excellent fire service team. To sell to another local business is both seamless consistent with our support of locally owned businesses."
"United has been a respected high integrity competitor of ours in Portland for many years, and we are excited to expand our 3M/DBI fall protection repair capabilities to Portland, and to pick up a talented team of safety specialists in the Portland market," said Tim Loy, president of Mallory.
