Corporate Social Responsibility

A Message from Our President & CEO

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

As a distributor, we maintain a light carbon footprint. We also support a healthy environment by helping our customers reduce their impact. Where appropriate, we advise customers on energy savings in their operations, including conducting energy audits in critical areas like motors, belting and gearing, and developing innovative fluid power systems that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We also promote product alternatives that are bio-based, non-toxic and / or made from recycled content.

Building on our legacy also means being a responsible corporate citizen by implementing greener practices in our operations, promoting diversity and continuous learning across our organization, as well as supporting the well-being of our associates and our communities. We know we continue to have an opportunity – and collective responsibility – to further develop plans, actions and results that promote fair, honest and ethical practices across our business.

Collectively, we recognize our business requirements and social responsibility as we continue to enhance our position as a differentiated industrial distributor and extend our Company’s legacy for many more years to come.

We are pleased to share our ongoing progress and demonstrated commitment to ensuring that Applied conducts business fairly, honestly and ethically, in every location where we do business.
