Why Choose PACE? We’ll Tell You!
PACE was founded in 1982 for the purpose of distributing Honda engines to retail stores and OEMs in Michigan and the Toledo, Ohio area. Our original ownership team had worked in a retail equipment dealership business that was founded in 1928. The retail dealership experience gave PACE a unique perspective on supporting dealers and customers.
Now PACE boasts distribution territory covering the Midwest, South East and West Coast, including Alaska, Hawaii and Guam. PACE has warehousing in Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida and California; over 200,000 square feet dedicated to serving our customers. With 50 internal employees and 28 territory managers covering 23 states, we strive to provide efficient, high value distribution.
We distribute premium outdoor power equipment for commercial lawn maintenance, landscape, rental and construction businesses. We also provide a complete line of replacement parts for the products we sell and back up our products with factory-trained technical service, customer service, and warranty personnel.
As a family owned business, PACE knows the value of long-term relationships. Both our dealers and our suppliers have grown along with us. Some of our team members have been with us since the beginning. Look to PACE, Inc. for your premium outdoor power equipment needs.

I appreciate working with your company. Out of the four reps I deal with for my business, none of them compare to Al Latta (Sales Rep). What a great company all around to work with. All of the added support from the ground up drives me to promote your products over the competition. Thank you from all of our staff to yours, we look forward to growing together in the future.
PACE has been by far the best Distributor I have worked with! Thank you so much for all that you do for our dealership. The PACE warranty department is for sure one of the best we work with. We have a great, trusting relationship with them, which allows us to better service our customers. Warranty claims get processed right away, and credits are issued very fast. Together we have made great strides in growing our business, and we look forward to continuing.
Gary Balko [Inside Customer Service] is one of the best people employed by PACE. He always either answers the phone when we call, or returns calls promptly. If he doesn’t have an immediate answer, he will get one for me quickly. Working with people like Gary is why I like doing business with PACE. Gary, along with Nichelle and Todd [Marketing] are all the best in the business.
PACE is easy to work with in many ways. Best of all, PACE has the dealer’s best interests in mind. This allows us to be profitable and able to afford the improvements and upgrades necessary to grow our business. I know that the people at PACE will listen and consider any ideas I have to offer, and we work together to make things better. I feel PACE has committed to me and my business, and I have in turn committed to PACE. Thank you to all at PACE for being my Distributor of choice!
PACE is by far the easiest and most responsive vendor that I have worked with in all my years in the industry. By far you have the best inside customer support people. Overall, PACE and all of your crew gets an A+
