"The only thing in life I want to be is a successful leader who bridges the divides between people."

-Shawn Newell,
Retired VP of Business Development

No two people are alike. No team achieves its best work without a variety of perspectives.

And no company is successful without a winning strategy that comes from a broad diversity of ideas. Our commitment to diversity is at the core of our business. It's a proud tradition and a strong conviction that differentiates and defines us, and it enriches our workplace every single day.

At Industrial Supply, we promote diversity in all levels of our organization – seeking out talented individuals of every race, ethnicity, gender, age and orientation. Together, our unique talents and backgrounds help us bring you the best possible suggestions for your success.

We also take an active role in our community, working closely with the Governor's Office on Economic Development. For decades, Industrial Supply was a women-owned business; and today, we continue to help minority-owned and women-owned businesses in their efforts to become 8-A certified.

Giving back to our community

When our founder, Rudolph Orlob, started the business in 1916, he understood that when his community thrived, his business would too. With this philosophy in mind, Orlob built his business but also worked equally hard to build his community. Confident that fostering a community in which individuals could participate fully - not only as consumers, but also as citizens, workers, family members and volunteers — he nurtured principles that guide our company today.

After nearly 100 years of supporting industry, we fully understand that supplying industries such as Kennecott, Boart Longyear and the former Geneva Steel allow these companies to provide the work and livelihood of thousands of individuals who are strengthened and unified by their communities.

To further support our communities, we give back through charitable donations and our work with organizations, including the Utah Food Bank, Prevent Child Abuse Utah, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the Huntsman Cancer Foundation and many other local institutions that contribute to the well-being of individuals in our community.

Because each community has its own unique facets, we also stay engaged in additional activities that help strengthen our sense of unity and our internal workforce.
