Prestigious List of Industrial Suppliers Highlights the Best in the Industry
Glenview, IL. – October 13, 2020 — Optimas Solutions, a global, industrial manufacturer, distributor and service provider, announced it has been awarded the number 20 spot on Industrial Distribution’s 2020 Big 50 List. Released in early October, the Big 50 is a prestigious list of industrial suppliers in the United States ranked by the previous year’s revenue.
As part of the announcement, Industrial Distribution released the Big 50 video countdown. In the video, Editor Mike Hockett highlighted Optimas’ history dating back to 1890, its e-commerce site and its 2018 acquisition of Circle Bolt and Nut as noteworthy accomplishments. In addition, Hockett noted the roll out of Optimas’ new fastener market strategy that focuses on greater customer intimacy, service innovation, a new sourcing approach, advanced manufacturing, and a faster quote-to-order process. He touched on Optimas’ emphasis on manufacturing improvements and quoted Marc Strandquist, President of Optimas North America, in the listing video that, “this is a time of rejuvenation as we focus on technology and innovation in order to position Optimas Solutions for the long-term future.”
“It’s an honor for Optimas Solutions to be named to Industrial Distribution magazine’s Big 50 List again,” said Strandquist. “Recognition like this is evidence that our approach and solutions are having a positive impact on our manufacturing customers and supplier partners.”
“For more than 30 years, Industrial Distribution’s annual Big 50 List has served as the preeminent ’Who’s Who’ for the industrial distribution market. Based on companies’ 2019 sales, the 2020 list provides a snapshot of the biggest players in this market,” said Mike Hockett, editor of Industrial Distribution. “That sales information is collected via a survey ID sent to our pool of potential Big 50 candidates, investor relations websites, editor interviews and company websites. While this year’s list does not reflect ongoing business impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on these companies, it stands as a state-of-the-industry entering this year. We’re already looking forward to our 2021 Big 50 and send our congratulations to Optimas and everyone else who made it this year.”
