By Dan R. Tinker June 14, 2013

McKinney, TX: SRS Distribution (“SRS” or “the Company”) announced today that it has opened a new, third location in the Houston market in Spring, Texas under the Southern Shingles name. SRS also has completed the relocation of the former Joplin, Missouri Southern Shingles location to the much larger Northwest Arkansas market in Rogers, Arkansas. These locations will carry a full line of residential and commercial roofing products and focus on servicing the area’s premier roofing contractors, remodeling contractors and home builders. 

The Spring branch will service the North and East part of the greater Houston area. The branch will be led by Josh Brown, who brings a strong background in roofing distribution in the Houston market. This location will be the 15th branch in the Southern Shingles family, and Josh will report directly to Matt McMurrough, the District Manager for the South Texas and Louisiana region of Southern Shingles.

The Rogers, Arkansas branch, which will be the company’s second location in the state of Arkansas, will service the Northwest portion of the state as well parts of Missouri and Oklahoma. The branch will be led by Michael Padron who has the industry knowledge, the track record of success and a customer service focus that will allow him to have great success in this market. Padron will report directly to Greg Robinson, the Area Vice President for the entire Southern Shingles division of SRS Distribution.

Dan Tinker, Chief Operating Officer of SRS Distribution, commented, "We are very excited to continue our expansion efforts in Texas and to be entering the vibrant Northwest Arkansas market. In the end, we decided that Joplin, MO was too small and too crowded for us to be successful long term and, therefore, the relocation, only 45 miles to the southeast into a market ten times the size, was prudent. As for the branch in Spring, it was critical for us to have a third Houston location to properly service our growing business there.”

Headquartered in McKinney, TX, SRS is a building products distribution holding company that with the addition of this new location will operate 92 locations in 31 states under the names: Suncoast Roofers (FL), Southern Shingles (TX/OK/LA/MO/AR), SRS Roofing Supply (AL, MS), Rowe Supply (GA/SC), Atlanta Roofing (GA), Cannon Supply (SC), Columbia Wholesale (SC), Midwest Roofing Supply (IL/MN), Gary-Hobart Roofing Supply (IN), River City Wholesale (KY), Superior Distribution (TN/MD/VA/NC), Shake & Shingle Supply (CO/KS/MO/IL), Stewart Building & Roofing (AZ), Roofline Supply (OR/CA/UT), Stoneway Roofing Supply (WA), Pace Supply (PA/CT/NJ), Burbank Roofing Supply Group (CA), ABCO Supply (MI) and Sierra Roofing Supply(NV).
