Mallory's History and Steady Growth
Mallory Safety and Supply has always been a family business. Mallory started as a small logging supplier in the 1800's and, through strong leadership and thoughtful acquisition, we have grown to be the leading industrial safety distributor on the West Coast, with 21 locations across the Western States, as well as a world class training center in Wisconsin and national safety and training business.
Tim Loy, President of Mallory, has led Mallory's organic and customer service-based growth. Tim Loy joined Mallory in 1999 and took over the company from his father, Avery Loy, in the 2000's. Since then, Tim has served in various industry and vendor committees, including with MSA, Affiliated Distributors, and supplyFORCE (currently on Board of Directors).
The Mallory Way Core Behaviors
Tim helped craft The Mallory Way and the principles that guide the ethic, and has helped assemble the team of many other regional independents into what could be described as a super-regional distributor, with national capabilities and aspirations.
What This Means For Our Customers
1. Mallory has integrated the best practices from all its acquisitions, which provides customers with great service, vending, VMI, staffing, training, and application expertise.
2. Mallory has strong relationships with almost every safety and industrial vendor.
3. Mallory has the strength to serve the largest Customers, while still being personal and approachable like the family business most of Mallory's employees grew up in.
