Global Industrial acquires Indoff Inc.

Global Industrial Co., a value-added national distributor of industrial products and MRO supplies, has acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding equity interests of Indoff for approximately $69.2 million in cash. Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Indoff is a value-added business solutions provider and distributor serving businesses across the U.S. and parts of Canada. 

The acquisition was funded from the Company's existing credit facility and cash on hand. Indoff generated revenue of approximately $180 million in 2022.

"Indoff is a strong and growing company and provides a great strategic fit with Global Industrial's business and multi-channel sales model," said Barry Litwin, chief executive officer of Global Industrial Co. "Indoff's network of more than 350 sales partners extends our one-to-one sales reach to new customers and markets. In addition, strong core product alignment in material handling, indoor and outdoor furniture, storage and shelving, appliances, and other core categories, along with new service capabilities and project related expertise, further strengthens our overall value proposition.

"We see a number of opportunities to enhance the value we collectively provide, including opening a new channel to deliver Global's exclusive brand offering and national brand assortment, and the broader utilization of B2B e-commerce platforms," he continued. "We are excited to welcome Indoff's employees and customers to the Global Industrial family and look forward to supporting their continued success."

Jim Malkus, chief executive officer of Indoff added, "This is an exciting time for our employees and our customers. As part of Global Industrial, we will be in a stronger position to drive the value we provide our customers and support the continued expansion of the business."

Indoff will continue to operate under its current brand and leadership team as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Global Industrial Co.
