PCE Advises Hisco on Acquisition of All-Spec Industries

Hisco, an employee-owned, specialty distribution company serving the aerospace, electronic assembly, medical device and other industrial markets, announced the acquisition of online distributor All-Spec Industries.  PCE Investment Bankers originated and served as financial advisor to Hisco.

Hisco’s commitment to high-quality products, technical expertise and local customer service has helped it grow to 34 branches across North America.  All-Spec Industries is an online distributor featuring 30,000 items and a track record of shipping 97% of orders the same day they are received.

“This acquisition will clearly benefit our customers,” said Bob Dill, President and CEO of Hisco. “Together, Hisco and All-Spec share impressive records as industrial distributors and offer complementary capabilities that will enhance our ability to serve the market.”

“As one of the leading specialty distribution platforms in North America, Hisco has distinguished itself. The acquisition of All-Spec will further enhance its position in the market and provide value to all parties,” stated PCE Investment Banker’s Michael Rosendahl.

This is the second transaction that PCE has served as financial advisor to Hisco. PCE advised Hisco on its acquisition of TC Services in 2012.
