SRS Distribution (“SRS” or “the Company”) announced today that it has acquired Rose & Walker Siding Specialties, an independent distributor of roofing, siding and windows servicing the Central Indiana area from its Bloomington, Indiana location. Rose &Walker was founded in 1989 and currently employs 14 people. The location will carry a full line of siding, window and residential roofing products and focus on servicing roofing and siding contractors, remodeling contractors and home builders in the greater Bloomington area.
Brenda Rose and Richard Conner, Rose & Walker’s current management team, and their entire sales and operations team will be staying with the company. Rose & Walker Siding Specialties will operate as part of SRS’
Midwest division and Richard Conner, who will be the branch manager going forward, will report directly to Rod Ruess, SRS’ District Manager for Indiana.
In addition, SRS will assume operational control today of Garland Wholesale’s branch in Clarksville, Tennessee. The branch will operate in the same location with all the employees staying with SRS as a Superior Distribution location in the Southeast region of SRS and expand immediately into residential roofing. Wesley Norfleet will be the branch manager and report directly to Tim Hanks. The remaining Garland Wholesale locations will continue to be owned and operated by Johnny Garland.
Dan Tinker, Chief Operating Officer of SRS Distribution, commented, "We are excited to add these two family run businesses to our growing network and welcome all the dedicated employees at both locations to the SRS team. Our game plan will be the same in both markets – to infuse the capital needed to grow quickly with an emphasis on the roofing segment in addition to siding and windows. We are happy to broaden our footprint in both Indiana and Tennessee with these acquisitions.”
