DGI Supply to acquire Coast Tool

DGI Supply, a DoALL Company, plans to purchase Coast Tool Company, a distributor of cutting tools and MRO supplies with locations in San Leandro and Fresno, California.

Terms of the acquisition, which is expected to close on August 26, were not disclosed.

“Coast Tool has built a reputation for providing a high level of service to its customers. We hope to expand upon that service while expanding DGI Supply’s reach and depth in Northern California,” said Jeff Waller, DoALL Company president.

DGI Supply plans to maintain the Fresno location and move the San Leandro facility into a new, larger facility, in San Leandro, shortly after the close date.

“Combining Coast Tool’s inventory will improve fill rates, and adding their vehicles and routes will broaden our existing delivery capability," said Bill Henricks, DGI Supply chief operating officer. "Additionally, the Coast customer service team will join a larger group in Northern California adding buying power, additional lines, business systems, vending and overall strength to its value proposition.”

Based in Wheeling, Illinois, DGI Supply is a full-line industrial distribution company representing more than 1,500 supplier brands. In business since 1927, DGI Supply has 41 sales offices in North America and focuses on improving a manufacturing company’s costs via process improvement.
