SRS Distribution announced the acquisition of Sunniland Corporation, a distributor of residential and commercial roofing products and related accessories. Sunniland Corporation also provides professional grade fertilizers to the landscape supply market.

“We could not be more excited to welcome Tom and the Sunniland team to the SRS family. The company is one of the most respected independents in the industry and will be an excellent fit within our existing branch network in the important Florida market,” Dan Tinker, president and CEO of SRS, said in a news release. “We have known Tom and admired his business for many years and are truly excited for what we can now accomplish together.

Sanford, Fla.-based Sunniland was founded in 1884 and is currently owned and operated by Tom Moore. The company has a branch network of 22 locations across Florida and south Georgia. SRS said Moore and the rest of the company’s leadership team will continue to lead Sunniland’s employee base under the existing brand name.

“My family and I have spent over 40 years building Sunniland’s brand, reputation, and culture,” Moore said. “We have always prided ourselves on being an independent distributor, so the decision to join forces with SRS was not taken lightly. SRS’ employee-first mentality and familial atmosphere has created a truly unique platform where promoting exceptional customer service is at the heart of everything they do. I firmly believe SRS is the best home for our people and the business we’ve built and am confident that the future is bright for our two great companies.”

McKinney, Texas-based SRS Distribution is a portfolio company of Leonard Green & Partners and Berkshire Partners. SRS operates a family of distinct local brands encompassing more than 740 locations across 45 states.
