Founded in the 1940s as Houston Industrial Supply Company, Hisco changed ownership several times early on. In 1970, Paul Merriman took a chance, spent a dollar on the failing company, and moved his family to Houston, Texas to have a go at putting Hisco on the road to prosperity. Paul Merriman was a pioneer of Employee Stock Ownership Plans, and Hisco became one of the first ESOP companies in the country. Today, Hisco is a specialty distribution company serving the electronic assembly, aerospace and defense, medical, electronics, and other industrial markets. Our international Hisco branch network includes over 30 stocking locations, 23 in the United States and 10 operated by our subsidiaries HiscoMex in Mexico and HiscoCan in Canada ? plus Precision Converting and Adhesives Materials Group that provide value-added fabrication and custom repackaging, respectively.
