Landscape distributor Heritage Landscape Supply Group Inc., a McKinney, Texas-based subsidiary of SRS Distribution, on Friday announced it has acquired Wolf Creek Co., Trotwood, Ohio, a family-owned distributor of irrigation, outdoor lighting and other landscape products. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
Founded in 1961, Wolf Creek is currently led by second-generation family members Scott and Chris Knowles. The company operates seven branches across Ohio, Kentucky and Pennsylvania, and employs more than 40 people. Scott and Christ Knowles will continue to lead the company under the Wolf Creek banner alongside Joe Twardzik and Chuck Watterson.
“We are very excited to welcome the outstanding employees at Wolf Creek to the Heritage family,” said Matt McDermott, president of Heritage. “We have tremendous respect for the Knowles family in both the business they have built and their passion for the industry. Wolf Creek is one of the finest independent distributors in the country and a perfect complement to our existing footprint between Automatic Supply and Aquarius Supply. We are proud to partner together to strategically expand our presence in the Midwest as we kick off the New Year.”
Added Scott Knowles, CEO of Wolf Creek: “This year marks Wolf Creek’s 60th anniversary. As we began planning for the next 60 years of business, our leadership team decided it was time to find a partner for the future of the Wolf Creek Company. We have a deep commitment to making our customers’ lives easier while creating opportunities for our entire team, which guided our selection of who would carry Wolf Creek into the future. We have found that partner in Heritage. It is with great excitement that Chris & I, along with the entire Wolf Creek team, join the Heritage family, and we cannot wait to see what we’ll accomplish together.”
