HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (Nasdaq: BECN) ("Beacon") announced today that it has opened a new branch in the Seaport District of Boston, Massachusetts.

Beacon has opened 32 new branches in 19 states and one Canadian province in the last 21 months and now operates 274 branches throughout the United States and Canada. Beacon has added 208 branches through greenfield openings and acquisitions since its IPO in 2004.
