American Producers Supply acquires Louisville Mill Supply

Deal expands APS reach in Kentucky, Northern Tennessee and Indiana.

American Producers Supply Company, a major supplier of Industrial, Construction and Oil Field Supplies in the Midwest, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Louisville Mill Supply, a long-standing industrial supplier with locations in Louisville, Southern Kentucky and Indiana.

American Producers Supply (APS) has experienced significant growth in all three of its market segments by adhering to the corporate vision of being the most respected supplier in the eyes of its targeted customers. The acquisition of Louisville Mill Supply occurred in early February and extends the geographic coverage of American Producers to include a large part of Kentucky, Northern Tennesee and a portion of Indiana.

American Producers is honored to have both the former owners of Louisville Mill Supply, Craig and Michele Shellhamer, and all of their employees joining the APS family. This acquisition is contiguous to the existing markets covered by American Producers and fits extremely well into the hub-and-spoke concept utilized by APS to provide same day/next day delivery to their entire customer base.

Louisville Mill Supply currently has locations in Louisville; Glasgow, Kentucky; and Ferdinand, Indiana. With this addition American Producers now has 12 locations in the Midwest.

Prior to the acquisition American Producers serviced customers throughout Ohio, West Virginia, Western Pennsylvania and northern Kentucky with corporate headquarters in Marietta.

Branches are located in Columbus, Sunbury, Lancaster, Cincinnati and Portsmouth, Ohio; Huntington and St.Albans, West Virginia; and in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, 8 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.

American Producers is a complete maintenance, repair and operating supplies distributor. APS also offers specialized services throughout the United States for various industries including railroad, power generation, oil and gas pipeline, coal mining and many metal, aluminum and wood manufacturing facilities. Some of these services include safety inspections, on-site hydraulic bolting services and calibrations, and specialized lifting and rigging manufacturing.

American Producers also supplies construction tools, products and supplies to many major roofing, highway and general contractors throughout the midwest. Louisville Mill Supply has been a long-standing industrial supply house that was a third generation family business started in 1938.

With several years of steady and significant growth, American Producers continues to expand its geographic footprint where practical. For further information go to the APS website at
