SRS Distribution expands in Southern California
SRS Distribution Inc. has acquired JB Wholesale Roofing and Building Supplies, Inc., a distributor of residential & commercial roofing and other related products.
Based in Chatsworth, Calif., JB Wholesale 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 200 people. Nizam will continue to lead the company’s employees under the JB Wholesale banner, ensuring continuity and consistency for customers, suppliers, and employees.
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“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.”
Tinker noted that, combined with the existing SRS footprint, the company will now operate a total of 20 branches in greater Los Angeles.
“We are truly excited by what our combined organization will accomplish together,” Tinker said.
“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 Nizam. “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.”
Headquartered in McKinney, Texas, SRS operates under a family of regional banners, including more than 390 locations in 44 states. SRS Distribution is a portfolio company of Leonard Green & Partners, L.P. and Berkshire Partners LLC.
