When the annual Industrial Distribution Big 50 is put together, we always
have a keen awareness that there are a multitude of companies doing
impressive, innovative work that don’t have quite the breadth to break into
the ranking. With that in mind, the ID Watch List was created.
Now in its eighth year, the ID Watch List gives us a chance to spotlight
those companies that might not yet have reached the scope necessary
to slip into the Big 50, but are still making a positive impact in the field.
Nominations were solicited online and from major trade organizations.
These are the companies that stood out.
