Motion Industries Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Co., announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Power Industries Inc., also known as Santa Rosa MRO. The acquisition expands Motion Industries’ footprint and customer service capabilities in the San Francisco Bay area. 

“The industry and product knowledge of Power Industries employees will be a big plus for our business, particularly in Northern California,” said Tim Breen, Motion Industries’ president and CEO. “We welcome them to the Motion family, and look forward to achieving great things together.”

Founded in 1951, Power Industries specializes in distributing MRO parts including bearings, power transmission, fluid power, and hose and fittings. The company’s factory specialists assist customers with cost savings and productivity in their applications. Industries served include wineries, food and beverage, water treatment, forest products, construction and manufacturing. 

The agreement marks Motion Industries’ second acquisition of a California company in the last year. Numatic Engineering (Los Angeles) joined the Motion Industries team in August 2017.
