Mission Statement

Having a deep appreciation of where our company began provides us with a focused direction and vision of our future.

We’re proud to be the largest, privately held distributor in the Intermountain West – at the same time maintaining competitive prices and excellent customer service. We accomplish this by hiring only the industry’s most experienced professionals, who also just happen to be good people who like to make a difference.

Our philosophy has always been to give back to the communities and to the industries that have helped us succeed for more than 100 years. Throughout our history, we have supported and sponsored local organizations – including the University of Utah Utes, the 2002 U.S. Olympics Skeleton Team, and the Utah Manufacturing Association – that have helped to strengthen and bring our communities together.

Our humble beginnings trace back to 1916, when Rudolph Orlob founded the Mountain States Rubber Company. Mountain States Rubber Company provided the mining industry with much-needed products such as packing, industrial tires and conveyor belts. Ten years later, amidst a booming Utah economy, Mr. Orlob started Industrial Supply to better serve a wide range of emerging industries.

Today, Rudolph Orlob’s family still owns and manages Industrial Supply, and is continually adapting the company to meet your needs. We currently offer over 50,000 products to the construction, aerospace and defense, utilities, government, electronic, mining and manufacturing industries. We’re proud to be affiliated with leading industrial vendors such as 3M, Kimberly Clark and Dewalt, companies that have been in business for decades and can bring literally a lifetime of knowledge and product experience to you.
