SRS Distribution Inc., a portfolio company of Berkshire Partners LLC, acquired Generational Equity client Kohl Building Products on April 28, 2017. Details were not disclosed.

Kohl Building Products, based in Reading, Pennsylvania, is a family-owned regional distributor of roofing and other complementary building materials that serves Central Pennsylvania and Maryland through its eight locations. Co-owners Tom and Deb Kearse, along with Kohl’s sales and operations team, will remain with the company.

SRS Distribution, based in McKinney, Texas, is a private roofing distribution holding company sponsored by Berkshire Partners. With the acquisition of Kohl, SRS has over 180 locations across 41 states operating under 18 unique brand names.

Generational Equity’s Vice President of Mergers & Acquisitions Fred Zweifel successfully closed the deal. Edward Weber, Executive Managing Director with Generational Equity, established the initial relationship with Kohl.

“Kohl Building Products provided a strong strategic opportunity for SRS Distribution,” said Zweifel. “I am excited that Kohl has found a long-term partner who shares the company’s culture and vision and will provide valuable support for the continued expansion of the business.”
