To meet the needs of continuing growth, Reid Supply Company announced today the opening of its Reno, Nevada distribution center for Bearings and Power Transmission products. This facility will serve Reid’s customers in the western United States.

As Reid Supply sees an increase in product demand from its customers in the west, the opening of a Reno facility has enabled the company to better serve in the western part of the country and will play a significant role in helping the company achieve the goals of its strategic growth plan.

“We are very happy to announce this expansion for our western customers of Bearings and Power Transmission products,” says John Carrier, President of Reid Supply Company. “At a time when we are all digging out from the effects of a very serious economic downturn, we are pleased that the demands of our customers are requiring us to open this additional distribution center through our co-op partners to serve them better.”

Motors and power generation are the foundation on which manufacturing is built. Motors drive nearly all powered equipment, from turning fans and running conveyor belts to driving pumps and powering tools. Power transmission is a key factor when converting the power generated from a motor into usable work for manufacturing. Reid Supply offers a wide selection of these parts on ReidSupply.com.

In 2008, due to an earlier product expansion in the Bearings and Power Transmission category, Reid added the benefits of a distribution center in Indianapolis, Indiana to better serve its customers.
