Applied Industrial Technologies

At Applied Industrial Technologies, we are proud of our rich heritage of 100+ years of leadership in distribution, built on a strong foundation of quality brands, comprehensive solutions, dedicated customer service, sound ethics and a commitment to our Core Values.

Our targeted investments in recent years have positioned Applied® as the premier provider of advanced motion, power, control, and automation solutions to critical industrial infrastructure. As a value-added business partner, we continue to look for new and innovative ways to work with our customers to maximize productivity and investment returns. This is what has driven us for the past 100 years, and for the years to come.

We understand that our customers’ choice of industrial products does more than keep their operations running. Selecting the right solutions can also keep workers safe, reduce environmental impact, comply with government mandates, lower operating costs, and provide a competitive edge. Truly, it is our specialization of technical solutions that makes us a differentiated industrial distributor.

The foundation of our efforts is our exceptional associates, who deliver value every day and remain our greatest asset. Our Working Together, Winning Together mindset – supported by our Core Values – continues to guide the way we conduct business and elevate our organization as a responsible corporate citizen… extending our legacy for many years to come.
