The Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA), an association for the industrial power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) distribution channel, welcomes a new member company.
MEM Industrial, LLC (Wichita, Kan.) began in 2003 as a rebuild shop for electric motors, gearboxes, and pumps. In 2015, the company opened a parts side–Midwest Industrial Supplies. Following the 2019 merger of the two ventures, MEM Industrial LLC was formed. Today, MEM is the largest U.S. motor stocking distributor in the state of Kansas. MEM is a distributor of variable speed drives, bearings, belts & chains, conveyors & material handling components, shaft couplings & u-joints, gearings, motors, industrial specialty chemicals, linear motion components, pumps, and accessories. “We felt joining PTDA was a must to let people know we’re part of the best out there, and it never hurts to network,” says Scott Arnold, general manager.
The Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) is the leading global association for the industrial power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) distribution channel. Headquartered in Chicago, PTDA represents power transmission/motion control distribution firms that generate more than $19 billion in sales and span over 2,700 locations.
