“Of particular interest to us is the addition of the Arizona location which gives us the opportunity to work directly with another UDG company, United Central Industrial Supply, to expand our offering in the North American mining industry segment” said Dan Ahuero, vice president of mergers and acquisitions for The United Distribution Group.

According to Richard Harrison, president of GHX, Express Hose & Fittings II will operate under the GHX family of companies and continue to serve existing customers.
