ORS Nasco is North Americas largest pure wholesaler of industrial supplies selling exclusively to distributors throughout North America. ORS Nasco offers more than 160,000 skus of premium branded products from more than 600 manufacturers for use in the industrial, welding, oilfield, safety, electrical, construction, HVAC, MRO, PVF, plumbing, janitorial, and rental channel markets.
ORS Nasco does a pretty good job at doing what they normally do, but they aren't really setup to help their distributors compete with the big boys out there. The pricing is average, depending on the manufacturer. Special orders seem to be a nuisance for them, but items that are normally stocked are usually readily available and ship fast. I think that ORS has not explored the full benefits that should be part of being owned by USSCO. All that being said, 85-90% of the time I have no issues with this supplier..
