SRS Distribution (“SRS” or “the Company”) announced today that it has opened a new, fifth location in the Houston market in La Marque, Texas under the Southern Shingles name. SRS has also opened a new location in South Texas in the city of Weslaco under the Southern Shingles name that will service the McAllen-Edinburg- Mission and Brownsville-Harlingen metropolitan areas.
Both locations will carry a full line of residential and commercial roofing products and focus on servicing the area’s premier roofing contractors, remodeling contractors, and home builders.
The La Marque location will be led by Ryan Langston, a 16+ year industry veteran, who has served in various roles, including outside sales, sales manager, and branch manager. The Weslaco location will be led by Joseph Combs, a U.S. Navy veteran who joins SRS with 10+ years of roofing distribution experience in the South Texas market. Both Ryan and Joseph will report directly to Mark McDonald, the District Manager for the South Texas region of Southern Shingles.
Dan Tinker, President and Chief Operating Officer of SRS Distribution, commented, “ We are excited to extend our Southern Shingles footprint once again and continue growing in our home state of Texas. A fifth location in Houston allows us to expand our capacity in the region and better service existing customers in the area. In addition, a new location in Weslaco provides SRS and Southern Shingles with access to the sixth most populous metropolitan area in the state of Texas and one of the fastest overall growing markets in the U.S Heading into 2015, we are continuing to execute on our industry-leading greenfield growth strategy, building our brand around local hard-working teams that are dedicated to providing best-in-class service. We are confident both new locations will have great success from the very start.’
