Sunset Industrial Parts, an independent power transmission components and hose distributor based in Cerritos, CA, has joined Independent Distributors Cooperative-USA.
"IDC-USA is thrilled to announce this new partnership with Sunset Industrial Parts, bringing the company on as an IDC Owner-Distributor," IDC-USA president and CEO George Graham said in a release. "Sunset Industrial Parts stays true to its motto, "we do what we say we’ll do, when we say we’ll do it," and continuously goes above-and-beyond for customers — values that IDC-USA prioritizes when bringing on new members. It’s an excellent fit. Sunset Industrial Parts brings the core values that set independent distributors apart from the big-box chains and keep us viable in the industry."
Sunset's product line includes bearings, power transmission, motors & drives, rubber products, lubrication supplies and general industrial supplies. The company serves the manufacturing, packaging, transportation, shipping and food industries.
"I have had the luxury of working with several IDC members and am always impressed by the caliber of its members and leadership team," said James Stratmann, president and CEO of Sunset Industrial Parts. "As we mark our 40th anniversary, our partnership with IDC-USA could not have come at a better time. As independents, we are certainly stronger together."
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. The cooperative is comprised of over 200 independent distributor locations across North America representing over $1 billion in annual sales.
