CLEVELAND, OH — Jergens Industrial Supply (JIS), a division of Jergens, Inc., recently announced it has acquired certain assets of B&G SUPPLY of Akron, OH. Together, B&G SUPPLY and JIS have over 100 years of distribution experience.

JIS said that with the acquisition, it continues to build its business as the largest and most technically advanced distributor in Ohio.

B&G SUPPLY has been serving northeast Ohio industrial customers for more than 40 years, with a focus on cutting tools, precision tools, abrasives and fasteners.

“By integrating my business into the JIS family, I will be able to give our customers many new opportunities, as well as giving our employees the opportunity to grow,” said Cindy Lukovski, president of B&G SUPPLY for the past 20+ years. 

JIS said it differentiates itself from other industrial distributors by sharing space with a manufacturing company. By applying nearly 75 years of expertise gained from being co-located with manufacturing experts, JIS helps customers shorten set-up times, reduce cycle times, reduce tooling costs, increase production and optimize speed in their manufacturing processes.
“This acquisition allows us to expand geographically and get closer to our customers in the Akron/Canton area”, said JIS general manager Matt Schron.

JIS will be opening a new branch in the Akron/Canton area. The facility will house employees and stock and hold inventory that will better support consignment customers in that area.
