Industrial Supply Company was established in 1916 when Rudolph Orlob founded the Mountain States Rubber Company to provide products to the mining industry. He later expanded into tools, metals and fasteners to become a leader in the industry with 7 locations and 170 employees serving customers in Utah, Wyoming, Nevada and Idaho.
“Our company has grown up with this region, and we are proud to be part of its history.” said Philip M. Thompson, Rudy Orlob’s grandson and Industrial Supply Company’s Chairman of the Board. He credits his grandfather’s high standard of customer service for the company’s staying power.
“My grandfather was legendary for his customer service skills. He understood that if you treat your customers right, they will follow you anywhere. Customer satisfaction is our number one priority and always will be. That’s one thing that will never change.”
