“It is unusual for two companies to have a business relationship that spans 25 years, rare when a relationship lasts over 50 years, but very special indeed when two companies do business together for 100 years,” said Reynolds. “Flexco appreciates the partnership we have formed with Murdock Industrial and we look forward to working with Murdock for many years to come.”

Tony Price challenged employees to help Murdock Industrial remain a relevant industrial supplier for the next hundred years.
