IBC Adds Three Preferred Suppliers

Hamilton Casting & Mfg., Link Industries, and REED Instruments join the fold at Industrial Buyers Consortium.

Industrial Buyers Consortium (IBC) recently announced three new preferred suppliers between late February and early March, adding Hamilton Casting & Mfg. Co., Link Industries, and REED Instruments.

Based in Hamilton Ohio, Hamilton Caster manufactures and markets a complete line of industrial casters and wheels, with load capacities from 120 – 23,000 lbs. The company also makes specialty casters, including stainless steel, spring-loaded, and pneumatic varieties, as well as a complete line of industrial platform trucks, in-plant trailers, shelf trucks, hand trucks, dollies, A-frame trucks, and pry bars.

“This family-owned and operated, U.S.-based business has been around for 100 years and complements the similar makeup of most of distributor members: family-owned and proud of it,” said Nancy Schwind, IBC's Director of Business Development. “Further, the alignment with our distributor members that service the aerospace, automotive, and chemical industries, among others, make this a solid partnership."

Link Industries is a Division of Link Engineering Company, located in Indian River, MI. Established in 1935, Link has evolved with the transportation industry into a global designer and manufacturer of precision test equipment, a provider of comprehensive testing services, and a maker of both standard and custom centerdrills, combination drills, and countersinks.

“Few know of the manufacturer’s vertical integration in the centerdrills, combination drill, and countersink tooling arena – did someone say ‘sleeping giant?’” Schwind said. “I’m confident our members will find Link’s offering comprehensive and a standout when compared to other brands that currently saturate the market.”

Wilmington, N.C.-based REED Instruments is a supplier of portable test and measurement instruments, pressure gauges, inspection tools and industrial supplies.

Schwind said that the signing of REED Instruments gives IBC’s members the opportunity to have access to a full line of quality test and measurement equipment, while maintaining a solid return on their investment.
