PHOENIX — Horizon Distributors, Inc., a full-service wholesale distributor of irrigation and landscape maintenance products, has acquired the assets of Wingate Supply, Inc., a Tampa, Florida-based distributor of landscaping materials, hardscape and stone products, effective Dec. 10, 2021. Wingate Supply operates one sales and distribution center in Tampa serving the southwest Florida market.
“Wingate Supply has served the southwest Florida landscape materials market for over 40 years.
