Modern Distribution Management released its 2019 Top Distributors List – its 10th year of profiling “the size and shape of these markets.”

“This directory provides a listing of the largest 150+ industrial and construction products distributors in North America across 15 product sectors,” MDM stated.

Among the “Top Deals of 2018,” MDM included MSC Industrial Supply’s acquisition of All Integrated Solutions (AIS) for approximately $86 million. Franksville, WI-based AIS distributes industrial fasteners and components, MRO supplies and assembly tools for commercial and consumer products.

Fastener distributors are one of 14 categories profiled by MDM, though the list does not include master distributors. The profile lists 16 U.S. fastener distributors, including:

NOTE: *** This list is not ranked in order due to the nature of this fragmented product category and lack of sufficient data to accurately segment category revenues. Key distributors for this category are included for reference.

• Estimate removes other product category sales to more accurately reflect fastener product sales, and is not total annual corporate revenues.

Data for MDM’s lists of top distributors were based on 2018 revenues, either reported or estimated by MDM’s researchers. In most cases, we used fiscal 2018 revenues, but in some cases, MDM uses calendar-year revenues for a more accurate comparison. Companies were asked to provide data about revenues, with information supplemented by SEC filings and publicly available information. For companies that don’t share revenue data, MDM estimates their relative position in its list based on best available industry resources and information.”

Trends summarized in this report were developed through a combination of MDM research, industry surveys and interviews with industrial distributors and their supply chain partners within the past six months. Economic trending is based on MDM’s annual Economic Benchmarks for Wholesale Distributors and economic analysis by the MDM research team.”
