SRS Distribution ("SRS" or "the Company") announced today that it has received the prestigious "Partners of Choice" Award from David Weekley Homes, receiving an "A" rating for excellence in quality.  It is one of only 11 companies to receive the award this year and, more importantly, the only company in the roofing segment.

Bill Justus, David Weekley's Vice President of Supply Chain Services, developed the innovative evaluation platform as a tool for improving quality and service, in support of the highest degree of homeowner satisfaction.  Bill commented "SRS Distribution has demonstrated that it is among the best of the best in delivering quality products to David Weekley Homes.  They are the only company in the roofing distribution segment to receive our "Partners of Choice" Award for quality in 2016 and we are excited to further develop our partnership with the SRS family of companies for years to come."
