SRS Distribution announced today it has opened two new Southern Shingles locations in La Marque and Weslaco, Texas. The La Marque store will be the company's fifth location serving the Houston market, while the Welaco store is the first to serve the Rio Grande Valley.
Industry veteran Ryan Langston will head the La Marque location, bringing more than16 years of experience to the role, while the Weslaco store will be led by Joseph Combs. Langston and Combs will both report directly to Mark McDonald, district manager for the South Texas region of Southern Shingles.
Dan Tinker, president and chief operating officer of McKinney, Texas-based SRS Distribution, commented, "A fifth location in Houston allows us to expand our capacity in the region and better service existing customers in the area. In addition, a new location in Weslaco provides SRS and Southern Shingles with access to the sixth most populous metropolitan area in the state of Texas and one of the fastest overall growing markets in the U.S.
"Heading into 2015, we are continuing to execute on our industry-leading greenfield growth strategy, building our brand around local hard-working teams that are dedicated to providing best-in-class service," Tinker added. "We are confident both new locations will have great success from the very start.”
SRS Distribution has 22 Southern Shingles locations.
