TAMPA, Fla. — Gulfeagle Supply announces the acquisition of R & S Supply, resulting in 24 new locations. The acquisition will further expand Gulfeagle’s footprint to the West Coast.

Gulfeagle Supply has grown to over 100 locations across the United States.

“Gulfeagle Supply has grown over the last 48 years by conscientiously acquiring like-minded companies that value relationships like we do in both their employees and customers,” said Brad Resch, president of Gulfeagle Supply. “We look forward to welcoming R & S Supply to the Gulfeagle family and continuing their legacy.”

Founded in 1977 by Alan Shufelberger in Redding, Calif., R & S Supply employees a team of over 200 people. Shufelberger grew the Mesquite TX Roofing Company strategically to 24 locations and became the largest independent roofing supplier servicing the western states. R & S Supply’s principles for success focus on people and service, which align with Gulfeagle Supply’s core values.

The acquisition will allow Gulfeagle to enter six new states including California, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, Oregon and Montana. The additional branches will fall under the leadership of Doug Stringfellow, vice president of operations.
