Ohio Transmission Corporation Celebrates 57 Years in Business

“In 1963, my father David Derrow and his trusted partner Phillip Carstens founded Ohio Transmission Corporation in Columbus, Ohio, upon the core values of integrity, achievement, investment and balance. Fifty years later, their founding principles have ensured steady growth and success that has seen us through acquisitions and economic downturns to become the stronghold corporation that we are today. We remain committed to helping our customers, vendors and associates accomplish their goals, and we’d like to thank everyone for their dedicated support during the past 55 years. We promise to continue providing value to our partners every day and working with integrity in everything we do.”

57 Years of Advanced Industrial Solutions

This year, Ohio Transmission Corporation and its divisions, OTP Industrial Solutions and Air Technologies®, proudly celebrate 57 years of growth and success. Since our founding in 1963, Ohio Transmission Corporation has been committed to delivering the highest value to customers by employing the most talented expert technical staff in the industry who passionately provide excellent customer service and work with integrity.

In 1963, we began as a small industrial supply distributor of mechanical power transmission equipment expanding within a year to include pumps and air compressors. Today, Ohio Transmission Corporation is among the largest industrial distributors in the United States. Now, more than 55 years later, our family has grown to more than 900 associates working in 31 locations throughout the South and the Midwest and Northeast regions.

We will achieve our mission by giving our valued customers the best quality products and services at the lowest costs, by providing our trusted vendors with excellent partnerships centered around solid relationships, and by offering our prized employees an environment where their talents are harnessed and their successes are celebrated.

After 57 years, our core values of integrity, achievement, investment and balance continue to be the standards by which we measure our success.
