The acquisition deepens DXP’s presence in the Mid-Atlantic region of the US.
“Kappe’s expertise and youthful energy in the water and wastewater markets will complement DXP's breadth of technical products and services. This transaction will not only allow us to continue with our existing marketing strategies, but also gives us notable talent as we continue to find resources to serve our customers better,” said David Little, chairman and CEO of DXPE.
