SRS Acquisition opened a new location in Raleigh, N.C., under the Superior Distribution name, the company announced today. It marks the McKinney, Texas-based company’s 71st location and its second greenfield location opening over the past week.

The branch will serve the Raleigh, Durham, Greensboro, and Winson-Salem, N.C., metropolitan areas, as well as all of central North Carolina. Phil Gentry was named as branch manager.

“We are excited to be expanding the Superior brand once again in a market that is one of the strongest in the country,” said Ron Ross, CEO of SRS Acquisition. “This location represents our seventh Superior location in the region.”

Last week the company announced the opening of a new branch in San Jose, Calif., under the Roofline Supply name and acquired Burbank Roofing Supply, a five location operation based in Burbank, Calif.

With the openings and acquisition, SRS now operates 71 locations in 26 states under various names. The company is ranked No. 13 on the 2011 ProSales 100 with professional sales of $343 million in 2010.
