IDG acquires SGS Industrial Supplies

Alamo Iron Works, a subsidiary of Industrial Distribution Group, has acquired SGS Industrial Supplies, a distributor of steel and industrial products with two Texas locations.

The acquisition will provide increased field sales support, inventory levels and a comprehensive catalog of industrial supply and steel products and services, according to a company statement. The company plans to continue operating its two distribution centers in Pharr and Brownsville.

“This opportunity allows us to enhance our historical position in the Rio Grande Valley while maintaining and expanding the valuable relationships nurtured by SGS,” said AIW president F.M. “Duffy” Shea. “We are in a position of strength thanks to the investment and commitment of our parent company, Industrial Distribution Group, which has allowed us to successfully grow the business and take advantage of timely opportunities, such as the acquisition of SGS Industrial and the remarkable growth in the Eagle Ford Shale.”
