To keep up with continued growth, outdoor power equipment distributor PACE Inc. recently doubled its warehouse space in Lakeland, Fla., to 41,628 total square feet. PACE also purchased an additional 44,000-square-foot building on Keel Street near PACE’s headquarters and main warehouse in Plymouth, Mich. The purchase and expansion brings PACE’s total warehouse space for the four locations, including West Bend, Wis., and Sacramento, Calif., to 205,000 square feet.
Much of the expansion is made possible by PACE’s use of state-of-the-art technology. PACE is able to provide online ordering and same-day shipping on parts and most equipment orders for enhanced dealer and end-user satisfaction. Dealers also benefit from PACE’s excellent customer service from factory-trained staff, plus 24-hour access to pricing and online ordering. “Ease of doing business is key,” said Shawn Hill, PACE’s VP of operations. “The easier we make things for our dealers, the better they can serve their customers. That’s great for everyone, and it’s great for business.”
Another factor is PACE’s ability to remain agile despite its size. “It’s a challenging, dynamic business environment, but we have a dedicated, versatile staff,” said Chris Saxton, president of PACE, Inc. “PACE team members welcome the challenges, and we are always developing and implementing new ideas to better serve our customers.”
Founded 33 years ago as a Honda engine distributor, the family-owned business now represents leading power equipment brands in select markets, including Scag, Little Wonder, Ferris, Snapper Pro, RedMax, Jonsered, Honda, Sno-Way, SnowEx, TurfEx, Wright and Vortexx Pressure Washers, as well as a complete line of commercial accessories.
