BPS Supply Group (BPS) — a California-based distributor of pipes, valves, and other industrial supplies — announced its acquisition of Producers Supply Company (PSC). Pennsylvania-based PSC is a fellow distributor of pipes, valves, critical energy, and industrial supplies. “BPS is excited to join forces with Producers Supply Company,” BPS president Dan Byrum said in a press release. “PSC has an impressive reputation and a commanding market position, driven by the company’s proven team delivering unparalleled responsiveness and product availability and best-in-class service to its valued customers.”
Founded in 1968, BPS is headquartered in Shafter, California, and has 19 locations across seven states. BPS is a portfolio company of Dallas-based private equity firm Trive Capital, which invested in BPS earlier this year.
PSC was founded in 1991 in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, and caters primarily to customers in the Appalachia region.
“PSC’s complementary product offering, deep expertise of end market applications, and exceptional track record of customer service have made them the supplier of choice for businesses operating in the Appalachia region,” Trive partner Blake Bonner said.
“The addition of PSC not only broadens service capabilities that can be offered to customers across other BPS locations but also provides an ideal launching pad for continued growth in the Northeast,” added Trive managing director Jared Reyes.
PSC president Gary Bowers remains with the company following the acquisition, according to the release.
