Empire Equipment Company ("Empire Group") (www.empire-equipment.com), has acquired Pacific Marketing Associates, Inc (“PMA”) (www.pmareps.com), a wholesale distributor of commercial foodservice equipment based in Hayward, CA.

The transaction continues to build on Empire Group’s strategy to focus on expanding product lines, adding sales resources, and opening new locations throughout the U.S.
