Independent Distributors Cooperative (IDC-USA) announced Monday that Beaumont, TX-based BK Industrial Solutions has joined IDC's network.
Headquartered in Beaumont, TX, BK Industrial Solutions is a distributor of industrial motors, bearings, and other power transmission equipment to the MRO market. The company was organized in the Winter of 2014 to acquire the Beaumont assets from Brance-Krachy Co., Inc. Operating from its current facility since 1965, the Beaumont operation has been supported by an on-site hose assembly shop while supplying mechanical power transmission equipment and solutions to industrial users throughout Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana.
Jon Andrews, BK founder and co-owner, stressed the need to immediately partner with IDC-USA to support the company's strategic pricing and branding objectives.
“We feel that the partnership gives us unique access to a combination of resources which will improve our platform by streamlining purchasing, increase gross margin through promoting the IDC Select private label brand, and offer amazing networking opportunities with other IDC Distributors throughout the country,” Andrews said.
“BK Industrial Solutions recognizes that partnering with other independent distributors will help them be even more successful in coming years," said Jack Bailey, IDC President & CEO. Although BK Industrial was organized in 2014, they have 50 years of experience to draw from and that makes them a strong addition to the IDC Network."
Established in 1988, IDC-USA is a distributor-owned purchasing and national marketing cooperative of independent distributors of industrial bearing, power transmission and industry related products.
