Alaska Rubber Group Acquires Industrial Supply Inc. 

Alaska Rubber Group is pleased to announce the acquisition of Industrial Supply Inc. in Bellingham Washington. 

This addition expands ARG’s (Alaska Rubber Group) branch locations to twelve across Alaska, Washington, and Oregon. This location not only extends the company’s geographic reach but expands its capabilities, product offerings and markets served. 

“Industrial Supply Inc. is an excellent fit for ARG. The location is perfect and will allow us to better serve the rapidly expanding industrial market between our Everett WA location and the Canadian border. We are picking up several new product lines with this acquisition, and we’re also getting another location with rigging and lifting product fabrication capabilities. This allows us to grow that part of our business outside of Alaska, into the Pacific Northwest. More importantly, the team at ISI and the culture Rod and Dave have fostered are an excellent addition to our employee ownership model” – Mike Mortensen, President & CEO 

Industrial Supply Inc has been serving Bellingham and the surrounding area since 1954. Formerly Allied Supply, then later Industrial Supply Inc. Rod Jackson and Dave Clark have owned and operated ISI since 2007. ISI has become known as the one-stop shop, fabricating and distributing a full portfolio of industrial and hydraulic hose and fittings as well as lifting and rigging products, chemicals, abrasives, ground engagement products, and much more. The team in Bellingham has an excellent reputation for superior customer service. This model will continue as both Jackson & Clark will remain engaged in the success of the location as they lead their team to further growth and participation in employee ownership as part of the Alaska Rubber Group.
