Motion Industries, a subsidiary of Genuine Parts Co., has acquired Hydraulic Supply Co. The transaction was completed Oct. 1.

Its team of experienced technicians provide a wide variety of services including hydraulic repair, hose assembly and kitting, tube bending and flaring, and manual valve assembly. Also, HSC provides solutions for customers in a wide range industries, from agriculture to mining to transportation.

 “I’m grateful to see our company able to continue growing as a division of Motion Industries – a great cultural fit and shared values,” said Jim Inglis, CEO of HSC. “I’m extremely thankful for all that the Hydraulic Supply Company team members have done for me, my family and for each other over the last 71 years. I know that under Motion Industries’ leadership it’s going to continue to be a fun and exciting future.”

“When we began to explore selling HSC, culture was always at the very top of our concerns,” said HSC president John Serra. “Spending time with Motion’s executive team quickly resolved those concerns. Coupling that with Motion’s vision to see HSC operate as a vertical business unit within Motion’s existing footprint, assured both Jim Inglis and me that we didn’t need to look any further.”

“The addition of HSC further expands our reach and commitment to Motion’s customers in the fluid conveyance channel,” said Kevin Storer, executive vice president, U.S. operations and president of Motion Mexico.

Headquartered near Miami, HSC services customers mainly in the southeast U.S., and conducts international sales through its office in Monterrey, Mexico.
