SRS Distribution ("SRS" or "the Company") announced today that it has opened three new locations in Norfolk, Virginia, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Alpharetta, Georgia under the Superior Distribution name. Each of these new locations will carry a full line of roofing products and focus on servicing roofing contractors, remodeling contractors, and home builders.

The Norfolk location expands SRS's footprint in Hapton Roads to two total locations in a highly attractive marketplace.  Now with locations in Norfolk and Chesapeake, SRS can continue to provide superior service to customers and better navigate the complex transportation landscape of the region. Norfolk will operate under the direct supervision of Paul Whelan, SRS's Vice President for the Northeast Region.


Adding a second location in Charlotte is another key step in a multi-phase growth plan to increase SRS's presence in the rapidly expanding Charlotte market. The new strategically placed location, coupled with SRS's existing location in Midland, expands capacity and significantly increases accessibility and convenience for customers.

The new Alpharetta location increases SRS's footprint in metropolitan Atlanta to four total locations. Adding a branch in the Fulton / Forsyth County area allows SRS to fill a market void and better service customers in the area. Alpharetta also represents SRS's first dual-branded distribution operation, introducing the Commercial Distribution Specialists brand to the Atlanta marketplace.  Both Charlotte and Alpharetta will operate under the direct supervision of Chad Stanton, SRS's Vice President for the Southeast Region.

Dan Tinker, President and Chief Operating Officer of SRS Distribution, commented, "We are pleased to continue our expansion efforts with these three new locations in markets where we have an existing presence.  We have strong teams already in place who are focused on providing best-in-class service as we keep pace with these high growth markets. We look forward to announcing additional planned greenfield expansion opportunities this year as we continue to invest across our network."
