California-based Pace Supply will also build a

“This acquisition is a major opportunity to build on our
existing Hawaii business and continue the strong relationships
that Hawaii Pacific Plumbing Supply and their employees have

since earlier this year about a sale, which is expected to close
sometime this summer.
