Beacon Expands Customer Service in Texas and Florida

October 6, 2021

New branches opened in Houston, TX and North Port, FL

Beacon (Nasdaq: BECN) announced today that it has opened two new branches to expand service to customers in the Houston, TX, and North Port-Bradenton-Sarasota, FL market areas. The two new distribution facilities demonstrate the Company’s continued focus on investing resources in key markets as part of its organic growth strategic initiative.

The Houston, TX location is a Beacon OTC® Network hub. Beacon’s OTC Network is a strategic initiative designed to raise service levels by sharing resources, inventory, and systems to deliver an outstanding customer experience. This hub houses approximately 125,000 square feet of inventory as well as dedicated will-call locations and central dispatch operations. The North Port, FL location houses approximately 30,000 square feet of inventory. Both branches serve residential and non-residential customers with leading brands of roofing and complementary products, including Beacon’s own TRI-BUILT brand.

“These new branches are examples of marrying our strategic initiatives to drive organic growth and, at the same time, leverage our distribution network to enhance customer service, optimize inventory, and lower the cost to serve. In addition, these two locations bring dozens of new well-paying jobs to their communities and will create additional career paths for current employees,” commented Julian Francis, President & CEO of Beacon.
