Interline Brands Inc., Jacksonville, FL, distributor and direct marketer of broad-line maintenance, repair and operations products to the facilities maintenance end-market, reported sales for the second quarter of $425.5 million, up 4.9 percent year-over-year. The company reported a loss of $38.6 million, compared to a profit of $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2013.
