Cincinnati, Ohio-based lubricant, fuel, and diesel exhaust fluid distributor RelaDyne announced Thursday that it has acquired Nashville, Tennessee-based Mid-State Industrial Supply and J.B. Weimar, Inc. (MSIS).
The move is RelaDyne's fifth acquisition of 2015, and offers it extended strength and continuous product supply between the company's existing northern and southern markets.
"Mid-State Industrial has a strong and longstanding reputation in the Tennessee market, with Jim and Anita Weimar having owned and operated the business for over 39 years," RelaDyne said in a release.
Mid-State services a wide range of automotive, commercial, and some industrial businesses along with auxiliary products including equipment services, chemicals, and commercial and retail fuels.
"The acquisition of MSIS helps solidify RelaDyne’s strategic position in the market by connecting the northern and southern RelaDyne regions along with expanding our product and services portfolio to these existing and new customers," noted RelaDyne CEO Larry Stoddard. "We welcome all MSIS customers and associates to RelaDyne."
Joining RelaDyne enables MSIS to offer its customers the full line of RelaDyne products and services, including an expanded line of industrial reliability services and automotive products backed by profit-enhancing programs built for customers. MSIS customers will also have access to RelaDyne's e-commerce platform, RelaDyne Express.
RelaDyne notes that Mid-State Industrial and J.B. Weimar Inc. owner Jim Weimar and his team will stay on with RelaDyne to ensure continuity for customers, employees, and suppliers.
"We are excited to join the RelaDyne family and look forward to now providing our customers and associates with more opportunities than they ever had before," Weimar stated.
RelaDyne said it anticipates further acquisitions in 2015.
