About Boring Smith


From our humble beginnings in 1972, servicing the Georgia Manufactured Housing Industry from the back of a bread truck, we have seen a lot of changes over the years. But one thing that has not changed was Dick Boring and Doug Smith's vision of providing innovative and high quality products and services to their customers.

Today, Boring-Smith is an industry leader for the distribution of Maintenance, Repair, Operations and Production (MROP) products to the Manufactured, Housing, Recreational Vehicle, Commercial Modular, Trailer, Specialty Vehicle and Recreational Marine industries. As a fully owned business unit of INDUSTRIAL DISTRIBUTION GROUP (IDG) Boring-Smith has the advantage of a big company’s purchasing power and services with the agility of a small company to respond to the immediate needs of our customers.

Our nationwide reputation as an innovative supplier of unique services and solutions that lower customer costs has allowed us to grow to become the largest MRO Industrial distributor servicing our markets and among the Top 1% of all US industrial distributors.
