Youngstown, Ohio — Simon Roofing, a national manufacturer/installer and service provider of commercial roofing systems headquartered in Youngstown, Ohio, has acquired significant assets of Roth Roofing Products, LLC (formerly known as Viridian Systems, LLC), a Roth Bros./Sodexo company that manufactures commercial roofing materials.
The deal includes Simon Roofing taking ownership of inventory, equipment, product lines, formulations, codes and approvals, the Viridian name, and related intellectual property. Other terms of the acquisition will not be disclosed.
“Adding Viridian Systems to our family of brands enhances our manufacturing capabilities and expands our product offerings to include their patented, code-approved formulations, which in turn increases Simon Roofing’s sales potential,” says Alex Simon, co-owner, Simon Roofing.
The Viridian brand name and its individual product names will be retained and incorporated into Simon Roofing’s SR Products manufacturing business unit. Housed in a plant opened in 2010 in Struthers, Ohio, the ISO-certified SR Products division manufactures roofing and flooring coatings exclusive to Simon Roofing installations.
“We had become concerned about our ongoing ability to manufacture products but wanted to protect our employees who had worked so hard for the company,” says Randy Settimio, vice president, Roth Business Operations, a Sodexo Company. “Therefore, we began to look for a company that would be able to continue forward with both our products and our employees, and Simon Roofing was the perfect fit.”
Simon Roofing is headquartered in Youngstown, Ohio, with 64 service centers located throughout the United States. Simon Roofing manufactures innovative roofing products and provides high-quality roof repair, restoration and replacement services.
Roth Roofing Products, formerly Viridian Systems, based in Tallmadge, Ohio, was originally a W.P. Hickman company that was purchased by Roth Bros. in 2009. Roth Bros., based in Youngstown, was later purchased by Sodexo.
