We are honored and humbled that they chose to join SRS from many opportunities due to the strong alignment of our cultures, values, and commitment to people.”

Bill Kirk, General Manager of Atlantic Roofing Distributors, added, “We chose SRS due to their reputation for allowing the companies they acquire to remain entrepreneurial. I am especially proud that the Atlantic Roofing Distributors legacy we have built will carry on under their stewardship. SRS plans to invest heavily in our business and surrounding markets and we will become stronger while also providing great opportunities for our long-time employees and loyal customers.
