Motion Industries, a distributor of maintenance, repair, and operation replacement parts and a wholly owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Company (GPC), is pleased to announce that EIS – a wholly owned subsidiary of GPC as well, which was operating independently and reporting directly to GPC – has become the electrical specialties group of Motion Industries, effective Jan. 2.
“We have been working directly with Motion Industries for many years, as EIS’s products and services complement Motion’s offerings in many ways,” said Larry Griffin, president of EIS. “Combining our resources into one offering to the industrial marketplace makes a lot of sense with our similar markets, goals and culture.”
EIS currently operates 39 branches and 6 fabrication facilities located across North America, supplying process materials, production supplies, wire and cable and fabricated parts to electrical OEMs, motor repair shops and various assembly markets. Based in Atlanta, the company focuses on three main areas: Electrical & Electronic, Cable & Connectivity and Fabrication & Coating.
