Our story begins in 1946, the year following the end of World War II, when two friends, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and a U.S. Navy veteran, bought the industrial parts supply business Owen-Richards and opened the first location in Birmingham, Alabama. Though the Company started as Owen-Richards in 1946, William Spencer and Caldwell Marks renamed the Company “Motion Industries” in 1972. The name conveyed the purpose of keeping machinery – and industry – in motion.
