Purvis Industries, a Dallas-based bearing and power transmission distributor, acquired ErieTec (formerly Erie Bearings).

ErieTec, based out of Erie, Pennsylvania, is a family-owned and -operated industrial distributor operating six branches. The company has served western Pennsylvania since 1958.

ErieTec includes EB Controls and a UL508A panel shop, providing mechanical and electrical technical solutions for customers. Purvis says ErieTec’s mission statement aligns closely with its own, which is to help customers improve their profitability and efficiencies through the application of modern products and services.

“ErieTec is a perfect fit for Purvis’ model and culture,” says Cameron Barker, vice president of corporate operations at Purvis Industries. “Their focus on local service, support and inventory has served their customers well throughout ErieTec’s existence, and we look for that to continue as they join our team.”

Mike Ketchel, president of ErieTec, shares in Barker’s excitement about the acquisition.

“We are thrilled to join forces with the team at Purvis Industries,” Ketchel says. “Our culture and our value systems sync up perfectly, and our team members have the same commitment to customer service. The combination of both organizations’ technical and engineering capabilities will provide our customers with an amazing level of service.”

Adds Jeremiah Johnson, executive vice president and COO of Purvis Industries: “We’ve been networking with Mike and the team at ErieTec through our participation in Affiliated Distributors for years. There is just a natural fit between our organizations, and we’re excited to welcome ErieTec to the Purvis Industries family.”
