BELMONT, N.C. (November 7, 2016) — IDG Racing is now VALLEN.  The merger between Hagemeyer North America and IDG, which began in 2014, is now complete.  The merger marks the beginning of an ongoing journey towards a singular goal:  to be the preferred source of customized, flexible supply chain solutions and services, and a broad assortment of maintenance, repair, operations, safety, and electrical products. As VALLEN, we are deeply aligned around a clear purpose, our customers’ success.   We are committed to delivering exceptional value and flexible solutions throughout the United States.

IDG Racing, the former specialty business unit of IDG, will now continue under the VALLEN brand. VALLEN – one family, one brand, one customer-first organization. 

As VALLEN, we will continue to be as committed to the motorsports industry as we have been for the past 15 years as IDG Racing.  We are proud of our sponsorship of 11 time world champion Rickie Smith, who just won his third NHRA Pro Mod World Championship in four years.  We will be continuing that sponsorship under the VALLEN brand for 2017 with a different look but same commitment to success on the race track.
