Topic/Speaker: Ichimura Family (Pural Water Specialty Co.)

Join us for an insightful event featuring the story of Pural Water Specialty Co., Inc. Established in 1988, this Hawaii-based C Corporation was founded by Earl to address the growing needs of customers in water-related services.

Earl’s experience in a Fortune 500 company highlighted gaps in water services within hospitality, commercial, light industrial, and heavy industrial sectors, prompting him to create a specialized business. The name “Pural,” meaning “Pure All,” reflects the company’s commitment to purifying water and also honors Earl’s wife, Allison, known as “Al,” who symbolizes steadfast support and purity in challenging times.

Learn more about their family business and how Pural evolved to a thriving corporation, offering unique insights into entrepreneurship and family business growth.
