MEM Industrial Joins PTDA

Wichita-based MEM Industrial is Kansas’ largest U.S. motor stocking distributor.

The Power Transmission Distributors Association announced Aug. 8 that it has added Wichita, Kansas-based MEM Industrial as a new member company.

 MEM Industrial, LLC began in 2003 as a rebuild shop for electric motors, gearboxes and pumps. In 2015, the company opened a parts entity – Midwest Industrial Supplies. Following the 2019 merger of the two ventures, MEM Industrial LLC was formed. 

Chicago-based PTDA notes that MEM is Kansas’ largest U.S. motor stocking distributor. MEM is a distributor of variable speed drives, bearings, belts & chains, conveyors & material handling components, shaft couplings & u-joints, gearings, motors, industrial specialty chemicals, linear motion components, pumps and accessories. 

“We felt joining PTDA was a must to let people know we’re part of the best out there, and it never hurts to network,” said Scott Arnold, MEM general manager.

 PTDA represents power transmission/motion control distribution firms that generate more than $19 billion in sales and span over 2,700 locations. PTDA members also include manufacturers that supply the PT/MC industry.
