Dickman Supply Adds Fifth Ohio Location with Lyons Acquisition

Dec. 29, 2022

Dickman Supply, Inc., Sidney, OH, recently purchased Lyons Electrical Supply Co. & Lighting Showroom, Dayton, OH, from the Lyons family. The purchase marks the fifth location for Dickman Supply and expands the company’s geographical footprint in Indiana and Ohio, according to the press release.

With the acquisition, the largely commercial-based customers of Dickman Supply will have closer access to a locally stocked warehouse. Additionally, the retail customers and contractors of Lyons will enjoy an increased selection and expanded services available to them. “This is what we like to think of as a win-win for our customers,” said Vice President Brent Palser in the press release.

Lyons Electrical was started in 1947 by Charlie Lyons, and it has been a Dayton-based, family-owned business for 75 years. After some 50 years in the business, third-generation owner, and president Tom Lyons, said in the release that it was time to join the Dickman family.

Dickman Supply Co. has served northwest Ohio since 1983, but its roots go back to Ruben Dickman and Dickman Industrial Mill Supply in 1953, giving these two companies a combined 144 years of business experience in Ohio.

The consolidation of the Dickman Greenville Lighting Showroom into the Lyons Showroom has already been completed. Operations will remain familiar at the Dayton location, maintaining the Lyons name, personnel and operating hours.

Dickman Supply has other locations in Greenville, Celina and Marysville, OH. It also owns and operates the Sidney-based Electro Controls, which manufactures custom wiring solutions for customers nationally. The company is ranked #81 on Electrical Wholesaling’s 2022 Top 150.
