Hello, Hisco! The evolution of "fast, friendly service."

Founded in the 1940s as Houston Industrial Supply Company, Hisco changed ownership several times early on. In 1970, a man named Paul Merriman took a chance, spent a dollar on the failing company (he really bought the company for $1!), and moved his family to Houston, Texas, to have a go at putting it on the road to prosperity.

Today, Hisco is a specialty distribution company serving the electronic assembly, aerospace and defense, medical, and other industrial markets. We’re marching onward to deliver documented value to customers through quality products, process solutions, and documented cost savings. In addition, we offer specialized warehousing for cold storage and vendor managed inventory services.

Hisco’s international branch network spans 37 stocking locations throughout North America, including subsidiaries HiscoMex in Mexico and HiscoCan in Canada. Precision Converting, Adhesive Materials Group (AMG), and Aero Colors provide value-added custom-converted parts, custom repackaging, and specialty coatings, respectively. Durable label and industrial printing solutions from Alliance Printing and Graphics accompany a combined offering of digital storefronts, inventory management, mailing operations and fulfillment.
