Ohio Transmission Corp. (OTC), an industrial equipment service provider and distributor headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, announces the acquisition of both C & C Industrial Sales (CCIS) and Midway Industrial Supply. 

Headquartered in Gallatin, Tennessee, with a second location in Raleigh, North Carolina, CCIS specializes in spray finishing systems, installation, service and repair across the south and southeastern United States. Midway Industrial Supply, headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, also specializes in spray finishing systems as well as sealant and adhesive application systems for industrial customers throughout the upper and central Midwest region. This also includes Midway Industrial’s recent acquisition of Contrast Equipment Company based in Kansas City, Missouri.

The companies will operate as divisions of OTP Industrial Solutions, which provides technical sales and service for industrial spray finishing, sealant and adhesive, automation, pumps, motion control, fluid power and power transmission systems. 

“Both CCIS and Midway Industrial are leaders in their respective markets with outstanding associates and management teams,” Phil Derrow says, president and CEO of Ohio Transmission Corp. “Together with OTP’s already strong presence in the finishing, sealant, and adhesive application markets in several states, the addition of CCIS and Midway will make OTP a national leader with the ability to provide customers with unmatched system integration capabilities.”

With this acquisition, Ohio Transmission Corp. now has 27 locations throughout the South and the Midwest and Northeast regions, along with eight service shops. The addition of CCIS’s and Midway’s combined 75 associates brings Ohio Transmission Corp.’s existing workforce to more than 750 employees.

“The addition of CCIS and Midway reinforces OTP’s commitment to provide each of our customers with expert solutions in every one of our markets and product categories,” president of OTP Industrial Solutions, Rob Webb says. “Our customers value the expertise of our associates and the professionalism we bring to every relationship. The associates of Midway and CCIS are a perfect fit to help OTC deliver what matters most to our customers.” 

“Bringing our companies together, without a doubt, brings more opportunities for CCIS employees, its suppliers and, most importantly, the customers we serve,” CCIS CEO, Wade Hickam says.

“Having led Midway’s acquisition of Contrast Equipment two years ago, I know the opportunities and benefits that a larger company can bring to associates, customers, and suppliers,” CEO of Midway Greg Dvorsak says. “Joining forces with OTC is a great opportunity to create the best finishing, sealant and adhesive application company in the country. The people and culture of OTC are a perfect fit for us.”
