AIC Acquires Assets of Harrison Industrial Technologies, Inc.

American Industrial Corporation announced the purchase of the business assets of Harrison Industrial Technologies, Inc. of Fairfield, OH.  AIC’s Mark Shriver stated that “we believe the acquisition of HIT fits very well within our core business and the addition of their customer base to the AIC family will significantly enhance our distributed product and engineered system opportunities within the tri-state area”.  HIT’s Fairfield, OH operation will be closed and all related Inside Sales, Shipping and Service support will be handled from AIC’s Greenwood, Indiana facility.

Harrison Industrial Technologies began doing business in 1917 as Harrison Tire and Rubber Company, selling tires and DeVilbiss equipment.  After purchasing the company in 1978, Dick Hellmer and his family added strategic product lines to grow the company into a highly respected finishing equipment distributor / system integrator with loyal customers throughout the tri-state area.  Dick Hellmer acknowledged that “after making the decision to leave the business, it was important to Joan, Rick, Brenda and I that we leave our valued customers in good hands.  We believe that we have done so, with the sale of the business to American Industrial Corporation.”

Established in 1969, AIC is the Midwest’s premier supplier of engineered systems, equipment, accessories, service and spare parts for the application of liquid & powder coatings as well as sealant & adhesive materials.  Representing brands like ABB Robotics, Binks, Col-Met, Columbus Industries, DeVilbiss, Fanuc Robotics, Gema, Graco, Koch Filter and Ransburg, AIC is uniquely positioned to service all of our customer’s application needs.

Gema introduces NEW OptiFlex2 Manual Powder Gun, the industry’s most advanced manual powder spray system, engineered for any powder – any part – any place!

Graco Introduces Agitator Speed Controller
