Motion Industries Newest Integration

Posted by Richie Capeles on Feb 28, 2018 8:34:17 AM

As the world changes at an accelerated pace around us, Motion Industries finds ways to meet the ever changing needs of their customers and the world they serve. The newest adaptation Motion has made is their integration with EIS.


Effective January 2nd, EIS is now the Electrical Specialties Group of Motion Industries. EIS is a wholly owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Company (GPC) and operates as three business units: 

  • Electrical & Electronic
  • Cable & Connectivity
  • Fabrication & Coating

Previously own by the same parent company (GPC), EIS has moved under Motion as a division. This integration allows the companies to take advantage of their size, strength, joint customers and value-added expertise in their respective market channels. Though the companies will now report one set of financials to GPC, EIS will continue to go to market as EIS part of the Motion Industries companies and all of their other recognizable brands will continue to be visible.

Visit EIS website at to see their services and product offerings.
