From Roots to Roofs
The beginnings of Sunniland Corporation’s roofing supply division date back to the early 1900’s when Sunniland supplied local farmers with baskets, seed, hand tools, shingles, and tarpaper. Today, our roofing supplies centers have expanded to some 20-distribution locations across Florida and South Georgia.
As the state began to experience its dramatic growth, the changes in emphasis between agricultural and residential fertilizer use became apparent and Sunniland concentrated its efforts on the latter. While still serving the bulk fertilizer customers including Professional Growers, Sports Field Management, Golf Course Maintenance, Lawn Care Professionals, and Pest Control Companies – Sunniland now retails most of its output in bag form for the homeowner. Residential customers can visit Lowes, Home Depot, Ace Hardware or Walmart to purchase Sunniland’s top quality fertilizers and lawn and garden products.
In addition to offering roofing supplies and fertilizers in Orlando, the team at Sunniland Corporation offers their services throughout the state of Florida and South Georgia via branches in including Bradenton/Sarasota, Fort Myers, Hernando, Holly Hill, Jacksonville, Leesburg, Miami, Naples, Ocala, Orlando, Panama City Beach, Port Charlotte, Riveria Beach, Rockledge, Sebring, Tallahassee, Winter Haven, Albany, GA and Valdosta, GA.
The headquarters of Sunniland Corporation is located in Central Florida at 1735 State Road 419, Longwood, FL 32750, telephone (407) 322-2421. For more information, visit http://www.sunnilandcorp.com.
