Purvis Industries acquired PTE Drives, a family-owned and operated industrial distributor operating a single branch in Akron, Ohio.

PTE Drives is a distributor of bearings and power transmission, electrical and automation, conveyors and conveyor components, and gearing and gear motors. Purvis says the company focuses on local inventory and technical product knowledge to serve its customer base in northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania.

“We’re glad to welcome PTE Drives to the Purvis Industries family,” says Jeremiah Johnson, executive vice president and COO of Purvis. “We are always looking to partner with distributors that want to serve their customers the right way – through knowledge, relationships and constant support throughout the relationship.”

Adds Ralph Funk, president of PTE Drives: “We are very excited to join the Purvis family. We have been focused on product expertise and a traditional distributor model of local stock, service and support for our entire existence. The addition of Purvis’ support and engineered services will allow us to assist our customers in more ways than ever before.”
