Recent acquisitions position OTC as a national leader in finishing, sealants and adhesive applications technologies and service

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Dec. 19, 2016 — Ohio Transmission Corporation, an industrial equipment service provider and distributor headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, announces the acquisition of both C & C Industrial
Sales, LLC, and Midway Industrial Supply.

C & C Industrial Sales, LLC, known in the marketplace as CCIS, is headquartered in Gallatin, Tenn.,
with a second location in Raleigh, N.C., and specializes in spray finishing systems, installation,
service and repair across the south and southeastern United States. Midway Industrial Supply, Inc.,
headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn., also specializes in spray finishing systems as well as sealant
and adhesive application systems to industrial customers throughout the upper and central Midwest
region, along with Midway Industrial’s recent acquisition of Contrast Equipment Company based in
Kansas City, Mo. The companies will operate as divisions of OTP Industrial Solutions, which
provides technical sales and service for industrial spray finishing, sealant and adhesive,
automation, pumps, motion control, fluid power, and power transmission systems.

“Both CCIS and Midway Industrial are leaders in their respective markets with outstanding
associates and management teams,” said Phil Derrow, president and CEO of Ohio Transmission
Corporation. “Together with OTP’s already strong presence in the finishing, sealant, and adhesive
application markets in several states, the addition of CCIS and Midway will make OTP a national
leader with the ability to provide customers with unmatched system integration capabilities. OTP’s
expertise in robotic and factory automation technologies also adds exciting new capabilities to
better serve Midway’s and CCIS’s customers.”

With this acquisition, Ohio Transmission Corporation now has 27 locations throughout the South and
the Midwest and Northeast regions, along with eight service shops. The addition of CCIS’s and
Midway’s combined 75 associates brings Ohio Transmission Corporation’s existing workforce to more
than 750 employees.

“The addition of CCIS and Midway reinforces OTP’s commitment to provide each of our customers with
expert solutions in every one of our markets and product categories.” said Rob Webb, president of
OTP Industrial Solutions. “Our customers value the expertise of our associates and the
professionalism we bring to every relationship. The associates of Midway and CCIS are a perfect fit
to help OTC deliver what matters most to our customers.”
As divisions of OTP Industrial Solutions, CCIS and Midway will have access to OTC’s vast product
and service offerings and support resources. The acquisition provides significant growth
opportunities for the associates of all of the companies and will provide customers with a more
comprehensive set of technical solutions.

“Bringing our companies together, without a doubt, brings more opportunities for CCIS employees,
its suppliers and, most importantly, the customers we serve,” said Wade Hickam, CCIS’s CEO. “As
customers continue to reduce in-house technical capabilities, we will be even better positioned to
provide the finishing and related products they utilize in their operations as well as the required
technical support that goes along with it. Our combined capabilities will be unmatched in the

“Having led Midway’s acquisition of Contrast Equipment two years ago, I know the opportunities and
benefits that a larger company can bring to associates, customers, and suppliers,” said Greg
Dvorsak, CEO of Midway. “Joining forces with OTC is a great opportunity to create the best
finishing, sealant and adhesive application company in the country. The people and culture of OTC
are a perfect fit for us.”
