Motion Industries, a U.S.–based distributor of maintenance, repair and operation replacement parts, has acquired two new businesses – including TRC Hydraulics, a supplier of hydraulic products and services headquartered in Canada.

The deals took effect on Aug. 1.

In business since 1986, TRC Hydraulics is a distributor of T-slotted aluminum extrusion components serving the Atlantic Canada region.

In 2019, TRC Hydraulics expanded by opening a facility near Spartanburg, South Carolina.


Along with distributing many lines of hydraulic product, TRC designs, manufactures and maintains hydraulic components and systems.

TRC also engineers customized hydraulic and mechanical solutions.

“We look forward to leveraging the many resources that Motion Industries offers and enhancing our services to provide greater value to our customers,” says Terry Coyle, president and CEO of TRC.

Motion Industries’ other acquisition, F&L Industrial Solutions, is based near San Diego, California. The company has served the southwest U.S. with aluminum extrusion components since 2002.

F&L offers local inventory, a staff of CAD designers, in-house machining, digital panel cutting, full assembly/manufacturing, on-site delivery and installation.

Custom-designed products include enclosures, clean rooms, electrical connections, robotics, specialized carts, and more.

“We are pleased to welcome these outstanding organizations, TRC Hydraulics and F&L Industrial, to the Motion family,” says Randy Breaux, president of Motion Industries.

“TRC gives us the opportunity to expand our hydraulics business in the Atlantic Canada markets. And with its aluminum extrusion niche, F&L will nicely supplement our Mi Automation Solutions Group. We look forward to working with the talented people of both companies to grow our market footprint.”

Mi Automation Solutions Group offers control panels, conveyors, machine vision, motion control, network connectivity, pneumatics, robotics, sensing I/O and other automation-related solutions.

Motion Industries is a wholly owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Company (GPC).
