Motion Industries, a distributor of maintenance, repair and operation replacement parts and a provider of industrial technology solutions, completed the purchase of Kaman Distribution Group (KDG).

Motion made the purchase for about $1.3 billion in cash.

KDG provides electromechanical products, bearings, power transmission, motion control and electrical and fluid power components to MRO (maintenance, repair and operations) and OEM customers. KDG is headquartered in Bloomfield, Connecticut, employing 1,700 people.

“It’s a very exciting time,” says Randy Breaux, Motion president. “This transformative move will be highly beneficial to everyone involved, especially for customers of our combined entities. Our customer service will be the best it’s ever been with deepened and expanded capabilities.

“In addition, KDG shares many of our same cultural beliefs, principles and ambitions, including our commitment to providing superior service and value to our customers,” Breaux adds. “We look forward to welcoming the highly talented KDG associates to the Motion team.”

Motion North America has more than 600 locations, including 25 distribution centers.
