Building materials distributor SRS Distribution Inc., McKinney, Texas, has acquired J.B. Wholesale Roofing and Building Supplies Inc., Chatsworth, California. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
J.B. Wholesale, a distributor of residential and commercial roofing and other related products, was founded in 1979 by Keith Jones and is currently run by Brian Jones and Nizam Husaini. The company operates 11 locations across Southern California and employs a team of around 200 people. Husaini will continue to lead the company’s dedicated employee base under the JB Wholesale banner.
“We are thrilled to welcome Brian, Nizam and the entire JB Wholesale team to the SRS family,” said Dan Tinker, president and CEO of SRS Distribution. “The company represents a rare opportunity to partner with one of the largest and most respected independent distributors in the industry. Combined with our existing footprint, SRS will now operate a total of 20 branches in greater Los Angeles. We are truly excited by what our combined organization will accomplish together.”
“We are honored to announce our partnership with SRS, a company we have competed with for years and have a tremendous amount of respect for,” said Husaini. “Keith built a business whose success was predicated on building and maintaining long-term relationships with its customers. In SRS we have found a partner that will continue that tradition, while further enhancing our ability to provide excellent customer service and growth opportunities for our entire team.”
