my wife and i are thinking about starting an industrial supply company. we will be selling mainly safety supplies but will also offer tools, cleaning supplies, anything needed in the industrial work place.

Do you guys have any name suggestions for such a business?

Go the Chinese restaurant way:

Number 1 Industrial Supply
Best Industrial Supply in Town
Taste Good Industrial Supply

and of course, use sexy women in your ads. That ALWAYS works.
