Mar. 6, 218 – Motion Industries, a distributor of maintenance, repair, and operation replacement parts and a wholly owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Company (GPC), has announced that EIS has become the Electrical Specialties Group of Motion Industries.
“We have been working directly with Motion Industries for many years, as EIS’s products and services complement Motion’s offerings in many ways,” said Larry Griffin, EIS president. “Combining our resources into one offering to the industrial marketplace makes a lot of sense with our similar markets, goals and culture.”
Operates 39 branches and six fabrication facilities across North America, EIS supplies process materials, production supplies, specialty wire and cable, and value-added fabricated parts to electrical OEMs, motor repair shops and various assembly markets. The Atlanta-based company focuses on three main areas: Electrical & Electronic, Cable & Connectivity and Fabrication & Coating.
“This move creates operational synergies and new growth strategies that will make both companies stronger than ever in customer service and in the competitive market. Together, we are leveraging our assets of people, facilities, size, strength, and expertise to provide even greater customer and shareholder value,” said Tim Breen, Motion Industries president and CEO.
