Amid generally increasing economic optimism as the COVID-19 vaccine rollout continues, February was another solid month of mergers & acquisitions activity in the industrial supply sector. Here on Industrial Distribution, we covered 15 such news items, which is down from 16 in January and 20 each in December and November, but not weak by any measure.

The month started out strong, with seven deals announced between Jan. 28 and Feb. 4 before hitting a lull until another six deals were announced between Feb. 12-Feb. 18. But after a pair of announcements were made on Feb. 22, M&A activity went quiet the remainder of the month.

Below, see what we covered in February in reverse chronological order of their announcement:

Despite our best efforts, there’s always deals announced that either weren’t on our radar, or that weren’t made public. But, this list should provide a good idea of most M&A activity applicable to the industrial supply market.
