“To provide superior service and quality products, with a culture of integrity, knowledge, and accountability, while increasing value for our customers and employee owners.”
ARG Industrial began its journey as Alaska Rubber & Rigging Supply, Inc., in 1980. The one store in Anchorage has grown through acquisition and expansion to five branches in Alaska, six branches in Washington, and one branch in Oregon.
In 2006 Alaska Rubber became a 100% Employee owned ESOP, this was the foundation for what would become ARG Industrial.
The addition in 2009 of a branch in Wasilla and the acquisition of Alaska Rubber and Rigging in Fairbanks doubled the company’s size and footprint in Alaska.
The company saw further growth in 2013 with the acquisition of five companies in Washington. Central Hose & Fittings in Pasco, Inland Pacific Hose & Fittings in Spokane, North Sound Hose & Fittings in Everett, Pacific Rubber Inc. in Seattle and Timco Inc. in Tacoma have expanded our footprint into the Pacific Northwest.
In 2014, further expansion took place when Alaska Rubber & Supply opened a Kenai, Alaska branch which has allowed us to provide greater statewide coverage, and service the thriving Kenai Peninsula Oil & Gas industry. Subsequent acquisitions were then made in 2020, Arctic Wire Rope & Supply in Anchorage, AK as well as Pacific Hose & Fittings, in Portland, OR, and in 2022, Industrial Supply Inc. in Bellingham, WA. With these acquisitions, our collective expertise and industry knowledge has been greatly expanded and the products and services we provide customers has increased. This has also added to our corporate history, now stretching back to the mid 1960’s. ARG Industrial’s loyal customers rely on us to offer the best products and service in the industry. We pride ourselves on being the secret to your success!
ARG Industrial currently employs approximately 170 people, across 12 locations throughout Alaska, Washington, and Oregon. All 12 ARG locations are retail and wholesale distributors of Industrial and hydraulic hose, fittings and related products.
