Ritter Technology Acquires Tri-State Hose & Fitting

Ritter Technology, LLC (Ritter), a distributor of industrial motion and control products, announced it has acquired Tri-State Hose & Fitting (Tri-State) located in Munster, IN. This acquisition strengthens Ritter's commitment to provide fluid power hose and connector products to its customer base in the greater Indiana/Illinois region with a special focus on Northwest Indiana, reports the company.

Tri-State was founded in 1982 and was owned and operated by James Smith.

"We are pleased to welcome Jim Smith and the highly talented Tri-State team to our expanding network of motion and control companies. Given Ritter's focus on providing products and services to our industrial customers in the Great Lakes Basin, Tri-State fills in our recently established Indiana footprint for hose and connector fittings. We see a great deal of synergy between our businesses and I look forward to working with Jim in the coming years," said Tim Hall, Chief Executive Officer of Ritter Technology.

"I have competed with, and worked closely with Ritter professionals in the past. I respect and trust the character of their organization and their commitment to customer service. Ritter has been great to deal with and we look forward to becoming part of the growing Ritter family," said Jim Smith.
