AFC Industries has acquired Hazel Park, Michigan-based Motor City Industrial. AFC is a full-service industrial distributor offering VMI services, kitting, light assembly, private labeling, and more. As a provider of customized product and inventory-management solutions for a wide range of markets, Motor City is an ideal fit.
For more than 50 years, Motor City and its subsidiaries — Quality Fastener, Smith Fastener, and Emco Industrial — have worked to improve the efficiency and supply-chain management of U.S. manufacturers.
Motor City has also been at the forefront of fastener and small component management and distribution services throughout the U.S, offering a broad line of value-added products, processes, and technology.
“Joining the AFC team allows us to bring additional resources and scale to continue to build on what has made us successful and open additional opportunities for our customers and employees,” said Joe Stephens, Motor City CEO. “We are excited and ready to start the next chapter.”
The company will continue to be led by Joe Stephens and the current Motor City management team. The exact terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“The Motor City acquisition strengthens our depth in a few key areas we were looking to grow,” said Kevin Godin, CEO with AFC. “What most impressed us though was the team and the commitment they have to providing excellent service to customers. Whenever we can add experienced and talented people who are already aligned with our culture, good things happen.”
