Specializing in drainage, soft soil stabilization and sediment and erosion control, Sitework Suppliers, LLC provides a full line of site-related materials, traffic safety devices, tools, and specialty products.

The company is located at 7309 Peppermill Parkway in North Charleston, S.C. Once the transaction has been completed, Sitework's operations will be transitioned into the existing Fortiline branch located at 4301 Arco Lane in North Charleston.

"Sitework Suppliers already has a knowledgeable staff in place, which will ensure the highest level of customer service from day one," said Mike Swedick, COO of Fortiline.

"With the addition of the personnel, vendors and product lines we will be able to provide more value for our customers in the region, in terms of quicker response times and increased inventory availability."

"From product selection to assistance with jobsite compliance, Sitework Suppliers has always prided itself on providing storm solutions for every job site need," said Ronna and Kem Chandler, owners, Sitework Suppliers.

"We share a similar philosophy with Fortiline, an industry leader in customer service and quality product offerings, and we're excited to become a part of this growing company."

In 2015, Fortiline opened a new location in Miami. In 2014, Fortiline opened five new locations: Haymarket, Va.; San Antonio, Texas; Nashville, Tenn.; Hartford, Ky.; and Paducah, Ky.

"As the economy recovers, we continue to see more and more opportunities to increase our market reach and we stand poised to take advantage of these opportunities," Swedick added.
