Lawless Group East Acquires Distributors’ Source of Florida

DSOF has over 30 years of representing quality manufacturers in Florida.

The Lawless Group (TLG) announced today the acquisition of Distributors’ Source of Florida (DSOF) located in Longwood Florida, effective June 1, 2022.

DSOF was established in 1992 by Grant Douglas and Steve Eckard with over 30 years of representing quality manufacturers for the state of Florida.

The acquisition of DSOF continues expansion for TLG’s East Region, the second acquisition in the past 6 months. This commitment to growth allows Lawless Group East to better serve the Florida market. The acquisition will also create warehouse programing and distribution reach in four states across the country for TLG. The current DSOF warehouse will relocate to Apopka, FL at the end of June 2022. This will become TLG East warehouse with over 40,000 sq. ft., and 12 loading docks. The space will have a showroom and dedicated hands-on training area.

Steve and Grant will both remain as part of the leadership team. “We are excited to be a part of TLG. This is a great fit to better serve our customers’ needs, introduce new products, advance training and end-user support and increase opportunities for our employees” stated Grant and Steve.

“We are excited to have DSOF join the Lawless family. Their addition strengthens our position in the East and aligns us well for the future” said East President Justin Vailes.

“I’m very pleased with the acquisition and excited about sharing our resources and company cultures to accelerate growth,” said TLG’s founder Richard Lawless.
