DALLAS—Singer Industrial, one of North America's largest distributors of rubber goods, is growing again by closing two more acquisitions on Oct. 31.
One deal brought Singer Viking Hose and Fittings, headquartered in Randleman, N.C., and the other brought Hotsy Equipment of Colorado and Wyoming, with its base in Greeley, Colo.
Dallas-based Singer Industrial didn't release terms of the acquisitions.
The purchases—the firm's fourth and fifth of 2023—bring Singer to more than 90 locations and over 1,300 employees.
Viking Hose will operate within the Catawba Rubber Division of Singer Industrial. Viking has been serving the North Carolina markets of Randleman, Winston, Salem and Greensboro since the prior owners—Garry Williams, Kelly Willien and William Johnson—opened the business.
The distributor focuses on the agriculture and general industrial markets, supplying them with industrial and hydraulic hoses and fittings, along with providing service and repair to customers.
"As a bolt-on to Catawba Rubber, Viking Hose and Fittings provides deeper penetration into a growing region of North Carolina and into new markets," Sam Petillo, president of Singer's Industrial Rubber Division, said in a statement.
