DALLAS—Rubber goods distributor Singer Industrial now has its first foothold in Georgia with its Aug. 31 acquisition of family-owned American Hose & Hardware Inc.
AH&H has served the Atlanta and Macon, Ga., markets for more than 45 years under the leadership of Dean, Mark and Kenny Smith. The firm supplies hydraulic, industrial and metal hose, fittings and adapters to more than 1,000 customers in the construction, food and beverage, and transportation end markets, according to a Singer news release.
"AH&H's commitment to quickly solving customers' problems is exactly the type of culture and mindset we value at Singer Industrial," said Singer CEO Craig Osborne. "We are very proud to partner with these devoted employees and add these two Georgia locations to our footprint."
The addition brings Dallas-based Singer Industrial's North America footprint to about 90 locations with over 1,200 employees.
Dean Smith will continue to manage the AH&H team and locations.
