“Industrial Supply Inc. is an excellent fit for ARG,” said Mike Mortensen, ARG president and CEO. “The location is perfect and will allow us to better serve the rapidly expanding industrial market between our Everett, Washington location and the Canadian border. “With this acquisition, we are picking up several new product lines, and we are also gaining another location with manufacturing capabilities for lifting and rigging products. This allows us to grow that part of our business outside of Alaska and into the Pacific Northwest. More importantly, the ISI team and the culture that Rod and Dave have fostered are a great addition to our employee ownership model.”
