In February 2022, RelaDyne announced the acquisition of The Farley Company located in Kent, Ohio.
Founded in 1925 in Kent, OH as a supplier of lubricants and chemicals to industrial businesses, Farley quickly expanded to serve the growing automotive and commercial sectors. This acquisition will expand RelaDyne’s distribution capabilities in the northern Ohio area, triangulating the Toledo, Columbus, and Akron markets.
“Our core objective when finding an acquirer was pinpointing an organization that valued a customer-centric mentality to add to our existing reputation established over the decades,” said Mike Burrows, President of The Farley Company. “Our company has provided exceptional products and services to the northern region of Ohio, and we are certain with RelaDyne’s support we can reach other markets to expand our existing footprint. RelaDyne’s own brands, DuraMAX and Drydene, and other products and services offered will provide our loyal customers more options to choose from, as well as attract new customers towards our business. Additionally, RelaDyne’s knowledge of the industrial market, driven by RelaDyne’s Reliability Services, is a great compliment to our lubricants and chemicals offering to our industrial customer base.”
