Aug. 4, 2020
Both transactions closed with an effective date of August 1, 2020

Motion Industries, a distributor of maintenance, repair and operation replacement parts and a wholly owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Company (GPC), announced two acquisitions. Motion has entered into agreements to acquire TRC Hydraulics, a Canadian-based supplier of hydraulic products and services as well as F&L Industrial Solutions, a distributor of T-slotted aluminum extrusion components. Both transactions closed with an effective date of August 1, 2020.

In business since 1986, TRC Hydraulics has served the Atlantic Canada region with several full-service sales and repair facilities in Canada. In 2019, TRC Hydraulics expanded by opening a facility near Spartanburg, South Carolina. Along with distributing many lines of hydraulic product, TRC designs, manufactures and maintains hydraulic components and systems. TRC also engineers customized hydraulic and mechanical solutions and offers the additional services of experienced fabricators, welders, machinists and hydraulic technicians.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to grow our business with a leading company that shares the same core values as we do,” said TRC president and CEO Terry Coyle. “We look forward to leveraging the many resources that Motion Industries offers and enhancing our services to provide greater value to our customers.”

Based near San Diego, California, F&L Industrial Solutions has served the southwest U.S. with full-service aluminum extrusion components since 2002. F&L offers local inventory including the 80/20 brand of aluminum, a staff of CAD designers, in-house machining, digital panel cutting, full assembly/manufacturing, on-site delivery and installation. Custom-designed products include an array of enclosures, clean rooms, walls, platforms, cabinets, racks, sneeze guards, tool holders, electrical connections, robotics and specialized carts.

“It’s a perfect fit of our analogous visions and business cultures,” said F&L Industrial owner, Mike Fanolla, who co-founded F&L. “We look forward to the growth opportunities, and with us joining Motion Industries, our customers can anticipate even greater high-quality service they’ve come to know from our company.”

According to Motion Industries, TRC gives it the opportunity to expand its hydraulics business in the Atlantic Canada markets. And with its aluminum extrusion niche, F&L will supplement its Mi Automation Solutions Group, which offers control panels, conveyors, machine vision, motion control, network connectivity, pneumatics, robotics, sensing I/O and other automation-related solutions.
