By Dan R. Tinker August 22, 2016


SRS Distribution ("SRS" or "the Company") announced today the acquisition of National Roofing Supplies, Inc. (dba "National Building and Roofing Supplies or "National"), an independent distributor of residential roofing products, commercial roofing products, and other complementary building materials servicing Long Island and the New York metropolitan area from its location in Patchogue, New York.

National Building and Roofing Supplies was founded in 1979 and began as a small, family-owned business operating out of the backyard of its founder and current owner, Michael Capozzi.  Today, National is recognized as a major distributor of roofing and building materials across Long Island.  The branch will continue to be led by Debbie Capozzi, as well as National's entire sales and operations team.  SRS Plans to use the National Building and Roofing Supplies brand name for all existing and future locations on Long Island, which at the outset will include both the new Patchogue location and SRS' existing location in Farmingdale.

Dan Tinker, President and COO of SRS Distribution, commented, "I am pleased to announce the acquisition of another great family-owned and operated business.  National is a company that we have followed for many years and we consider the Capozzi family as friends.  The strength of National, as with any successful organization, has been with its people.  They are a professional, loyal, and talented group and we look forward to growing with them for years to come."

Michael Capozzi, Owner of National Building and Roofing Supplies, added, "I am extremely excited about SRS and National joining forces and see many terrific opportunities for the combined company going forward.  After being approached by SRS, we did not entertain offers from any other company, as National's framework for success and core values for the past 37 years are aligned with SRS' genuine focus on people and mission of 'making money and having fun.' With similar cultures and complementary geographies, the combination will allow National's employees to continue delivering world-class customer service, while providing them with opportunities for further career development in a dynamic and growing company."

Headquartered in McKinney, TX, SRS is a roofing distribution holding company that, with the addition of National, will include 162 locations in 39 states operating under the names: Suncoast Roofers Supply, Southern Shingles, Midwest Roofing Supply, River City Wholesale, Superior Distribution, Shake & Shingle Supply, Roofline Supply & Delivery, Stoneway Roofing Supply, Heritage Wholesalers, Myles F.
