Elmco Sales Merges with Swords & Associates

Elmco Sales and Swords & Associates, Inc. is proud to announce the new business alliance, a jointly owned and managed company of Elmco Swords. Effective February 17th, 2014, Elmco Swords will begin representing the entire Swords & Associates product offering with plans to grow its business by further offering the finest plumbing manufacturers to the Hawaiian Islands. David and De Nee Swords, along with their son Michael, have been close business associates and friends with the Elmco organization for more than 30 years. Both firms represent leading manufacturers in their respective markets and have individually grown to be trusted partners with their clients. With the unfortunate passing of our friend David Swords last year, the merger seemed like a natural fit to ensure David’s vision of continued growth while providing uncompromised service to his clients.

After completing his military duties with the U.S. Navy, David Swords decided to make Hawaii his home. His industry education began in 1975 working with the Areita Plumbing Company. Within a few years, David moved on to become a partner of another firm called Hanco Sales. In 1984, he founded his own sales rep. agency Swords & Associates, Inc. based in Hawaii. Over the past 29+ years, Swords & Associates, Inc. has forged strong ties with the local Hawaiian communities and developed long lasting partnerships with several key contractors and wholesale supply companies throughout the islands. From its inception, David’s mission for the company was to provide only quality plumbing products and offer exceptional customer service. Today, the company continues to build on those principles in offering cutting edge plumbing and mechanical solutions to its valued customers.
