Heritage Landscape Supply Group, Inc., a McKinney, Texas-based subsidiary of SRS Distribution, acquired two irrigation equipment and supply companies.

Heritage announced Friday it had acquired North Florida Irrigation Equipment, a family-owned distributor of irrigation, lighting, water features/pumps and other outdoor living products based in Jacksonville.

NFIE employs 30 people and operates locations in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and Ocala. Matt Eaton will continue to lead the company’s employee base going forward, Heritage said.

“We are proud to have the exceptionally hardworking and dedicated employees of NFIE join the growing Heritage family,” Heritage President Matt McDermott said. “We have strong momentum in Florida and we are very excited to expand our footprint and capacity through this partnership with NFIE. Both NFIE and FIS Outdoor have deep roots in the industry and Florida market and we are honored to have this opportunity to unite both independent companies again under the umbrella of the Heritage family of companies.”

Heritage also acquired Hewitt, Texas-based Irrigation Supply, a family-owned distributor of irrigation products and accessories.

Irrigation Supply operates a second location in Belton, with the ability to service a fast-growing segment of the Interstate-35 corridor.

Owner Jimmy Eubank is expected to continue to lead the company, Heritage said.

“I am pleased to be joining forces with Heritage and am confident the Heritage family of companies will be an excellent steward of my family’s legacy,” Eubank said. “Heritage’s commitment to exceptional customer service coupled with industry- leading growth opportunities and benefits available to all employees made it an easy decision to join their growing family of independent distributors. Our entire team is looking forward to supporting Heritage and our new sister branches across Texas.”

SRS ranks No. 6 on MDM’s Top Distributors list for building materials and construction distributors, with $3.8 billion in revenue in 2020.
