The acquisition adds nine sales and distribution centers in two states.

Horizon Distributors Inc., Covington, Louisiana, acquired the assets of TWC Distributors Inc., a Sarasota, Florida-based distributor of irrigation and landscape maintenance products.

We appreciate the support from the many customers, vendors and dedicated employees that we have had the privilege of working with over the past 30 years. We look forward to working with the Horizon team to ensure a smooth transition and a strong combined business going forward.”
