Michigan_Sign.jpgSRS Distribution ("SRS" or "the Company") announced today the acquisition of Monroe Aluminum Products Inc. ("Monroe"), an independent distributor of residential roofing products and other complementary exterior building products servicing Southeast Michigan and Northern Ohio from its location in Monroe, Michigan.

Founded in 1977, Monroe Aluminum Products began as a small, family-owned business operating out of a 2,800 square foot warehouse in Monroe, Michigan. Since then, Monroe has grown by developing a loyal contractor following and a strong reputation for superior customer service.  The branch will immediately expand its current product offering and will continue to be led by the Grancitelli family as well as their entire sales and operations team.  SRS will operate this location under the Monroe Aluminum Products name.

Dan Tinker, President and COO of SRS Distribution, commented, "We are extremely excited to partner with the Grancitelli family and the entire Monroe Aluminum Products team.  Monroe is a true family-owned and operated business that was built on local relationships and exceptional customer service.  It is an ideal addition to the SRS family and highly complementary to our existing footprint in the region.  We plan to invest heavily in Michigan and its surrounding markets in the near future and will continue to build a national network of branches through acquisitions and greenfields that provides a home for the best managers and sales professionals in our industry."

Mark Grancitelli and Tim Finzel, Co-Owners of Monroe Aluminum Products, added, "Joining forces with SRS aligns Monroe Aluminum Products with the fastest growing company in the roofing distribution industry while also expanding opportunities for our employees, customers, and suppliers.  Through our new partnership with SRS, we are planning to accelerate our growth and continue providing outstanding service and a focus on going the extra mile for our customers.  We know that SRS will make Monroe proud and will take great care of the business and legacy we have built over the last four decades."

Headquartered in McKinney, TX, SRS is a roofing distribution holding company that, with the addition of Monroe Aluminum Products, will include 161 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.
