SRS Distribution ("SRS" or "the Company") announced today the acquisition of Tri State Aluminum Products of Wisconsin, Inc. ("Tri State"),an independent distributor of residential roofing & accessories, siding, and windows, servicing the city of Madison, Wisconsin and Dane County from its location in Belleville, Wisconsin. The effective date of the transaction is November 4, 2016.
Tri State Aluminum Products was founded in 1970 and began as a local, family-owned business operating in the village of Belleville, Wisconsin. Over the years, Tri State has grown and expanded its presence by developing a loyal contractor following and a reputation for providing the best products and services to its customers. Tri State will continue to be led by the Miller family, as well as the Company's entire operations team, reporting to Matt McMurrough, SRS' Vice President for the Midwest region.
Dan Tinker, President and COO of SRS Distribution, commented, "Tri State provides SRS with an excellent opportunity to expand our geographic coverage in the Midwest region into Wisconsin (our 41st state), which is an exciting new market for us. The Miller family and Tri State have developed a strong local identity in their markets which we intend to preserve and build upon for years to come."
Skip Miller, President of Tri State Aluminum Products, added, "We are happy to be joining a company that operates more as a family of independents with customer service, entrepreneurship, autonomy, and agility being core rather than a national company that stressed standardization and centralization over uniqueness. We believe that partnering with SRS will provide the resources and capital needed to accelerate our growth and we are excited to become part of the SRS family of companies. We look forward to improved growth opportunities, including the expansion of pruducts and services offered to our loyal customers."
