Motion Industries Acquires California's Moss Rubber & Equipment

The move strengthens Motion Industries' rubber supply services, and its geographic foothold in central and northern California.

Birmingham, Alabama-based Motion Industries – No. 10 on Industrial Distribution's 2015 Big 50 List – has announced it has agreed to acquire Moss Rubber and Equipment Corporation, effective immediately. 

Operating out of two California locations in South San Francisco and Benicia, Moss Rubber has supplied industrial rubber products since 1965. Motion says Moss specializes in hose and rubber products for the petroleum, construction, mining, manufacturing, transportation and agricultural industries throughout northern California.

"We are excited about gaining Moss's technical expertise in the hose and rubber category, which will help broaden Motion Industries' services even more in this area," said Tim Breen, Motion Industries president and CEO. "We want to welcome all Moss employees to the Motion family, and we look forward to the contributions they will make to our Company in the years to come."

"We are very excited to become part of Motion Industries and to be able to leverage the added strength that the company provides," said Greg Moss, President of Moss Rubber. "It will be a good fit with our customer relationships, which for both companies are built on a platform of trust, performance, and satisfaction."
