From new stores and renovations to acquisitions and new product lines, 2019 was a busy year at Triad. Here’s a look back.
CLYDE, OH PARKERSTORE
In April we opened a ParkerStore in Clyde, OH, helping us bridge the gap between our stores in Northwest and Northeast Ohio. The Clyde ParkerStore is easily accessible on Route 20, located at 2005 W. McPherson Highway, Clyde, OH 43410.
RELOCATED AND UPDATED AUTOMATION LAB
In 2017, we acquired Rilco Industrial Controls, expanding our automation capabilities and giving us a dedicated automation lab for product and application testing for customers. This year, we moved the automation lab to our branch office in Sharonville, OH, updating it in the process.
NEW PRODUCT LINES: PALETTI USA, AUBO ROBOTICS, AND HIWIN
This year, we became a distributor for Paletti, Aubo Robotics, and Hiwin. Paletti USA is a leading manufacturer of t-slotted aluminum extrusion systems. Aubo Robotics offers lightweight, intelligent collaborative robots (cobots). Hiwin Corporation is a global manufacturer of linear motion control products, including linear guideways.
VANDALIA FACILITY EXPANSION
We are expanding our corporate headquarters in Vandalia, adding 45,000 sq feet and additional parking to better serve our customers and employees. Work began this fall and will be completed in the summer of 2020.
ACQUISITION OF DAY FLUID POWER
In October 2019 we acquired Day Fluid Power, an authorized Parker Hannifin fluid connector and pneumatic products distributor located in Goshen, Indiana. Day Fluid Power operates one ParkerStore.
EAST LIVERPOOL, OH PARKERSTORE
Earlier this month, we announced that we would be partnering with M.E.S.O. Inc. to open a ParkerStore in East Liverpool (Calcutta), Ohio. M.E.S.O. is currently in the process of renovating their headquarters and Triad will rent the expanded space that was previously the Power Pontiac Dealership’s showroom. The East Liverpool ParkerStore will be our 22nd location and is slated to open in February 2020.
Thanks for a great year! We look forward to the exciting opportunities 2020 brings.
