Gulfeagle Supply is a full line distributor of residential and commercial roofing and building products that offer job site delivery to our customers. The company was originally founded as Gulfside Supply, Inc. in 1973 by Mr. Jim Resch. The company started in Tampa, Florida with one branch and has grown to over 80 locations nationwide. This growth has come from acquisitions, start-up locations, and diversity of products.
The first acquisition was Service Lumber in Jacksonville in 1975. Others include Southern Diversified in Miami, Sun Supply in Melbourne, United Wholesale in Pompano, Ft. Myers and Sarasota and Stringfellow Supply in Gainesville. In 1995 a major step was taken by acquiring American Wholesale which included locations in Huntsville, Montgomery, Dothan, Mobile, Pensacola, and Panama City. The Standard/ Bieler acquisition further expanded into South Florida. In 1997 the company acquired Roofline Supply in Macon, Georgia.
New start-ups over the years include Orlando, Sarasota, Ft. Myers, Daytona, Tallahassee, Decatur, Alabama, St. Petersburg, Wichita, Oklahoma City, Charleston, and Joplin.
Our expansion continued in 2004 with the acquisition of JEH/Eagle Supply, which has been a well-respected industry leader since 1905. Since this acquisition, the name has been changed to GULFEAGLE Supply, and we have gained locations in Texas, Colorado, and the Midwest (see locations)
In 2007, we acquired two new branches in the Carolina’s – specifically in Myrtle Beach, SC, and Charlotte, NC. And in June 2007 we grew in the Midwest with the addition of GROUP4 Materials, Inc. We are proud to be able to offer such expertise in 5 additional states for our contractor’s Carlisle and other material needs.
Then in early 2011, we were honored to have AH Bennett become a part Gulfeagle Supply. This included branches around Minneapolis as well as Fargo, ND.
In 2012, we expanded our presence in the Midwest with the acquisition of QBP and Quality Building Products.
In 2018, we acquired Kimal Lumber, a building materials dealer for over 37 years, founded in 1981 by Al Bavry and Kim Pavkovich. Visit their site to learn more: www.kimallumber.com
