Dakota Supply Group (DSG) recently announced the impending acquisition of Honold & La Page, Inc (H&L) in an asset purchase, effective July 1. H&L, based in Sheboygan, WI, is a third-generation, family-owned distributor of plumbing, heating, electrical, PVF and industrial supplies. Bill Honold, current president of H&L, will remain to assist with the transition before his planned retirement at the end of the year. John Kuznacic, longtime H&L vice president, will lead the new DSG Sheboygan location. The company will operate as Honold & La Page, a DSG company, for a period of time before transitioning to the DSG brand.
“I am confident that DSG is the best partner to further grow the business for the benefit of our employees and customers,” said Honold in the press release. “DSG brings resources and expertise to H&L that will enhance our value in the market. My grandfather and father would be pleased to know that the company and all its employees will continue into the future as a 4th generation of owners.”
