Additions expand Heritage’s presence in North Carolina.

Heritage Landscape Supply Group Inc., McKinney, Texas, has acquired two distributors. The first, Southern Stone Supply, is an independent distributor of pavers, natural and manufactured stone, aggregates, and other landscape products headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina. The company was founded in 2016 by partners Eric Mullen and Tucker Thorpe, who will both continue to lead the company under the Southern Stone Supply banner, ensuring continuity and consistency for employees, customers and supplier partners.

“We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to grow our footprint in North Carolina with our first location in the Triangle region,” says Matt McDermott, president of Heritage. “We are fortunate to have Eric, Tucker and their team of customer-focused employees join the Heritage family. Southern Stone Supply will make an ideal addition to our growing footprint across the Southeast.”

Heritage also has acquired Scott Stone, a family-owned distributor of pavers, natural and manufactured stone, aggregates and other landscape products headquartered in Mebane, North Carolina. The company was founded in 1985 by the Scott family and employs a team of more than 30 employees. The company currently operates across three locations in Mebane, Raleigh and Greensboro with over 16 acres of inventory on the ground across the combined platform. Scott’s employee base will continue to run the company going forward, ensuring continuity and consistency for customer and supplier partners.

“I am pleased to announce the acquisition of another great family-owned and operated business,” says McDermott. “We are honored that Steven and Linda Scott chose to join Heritage over many other options, and we look forward to building on the company’s legacy in the coming years. The combined strength of Scott Stone, Southern Stone Supply and future growth opportunities across the Carolinas will help us create one of the leading landscape supply platforms in the region.”
